3.16/5  rDev -14.6%

Poured from the can into a Spiegelau IPA glass. Canned June 12th 2014.

Deep bronze orange, and hints of peach colors, with a good amount of clarity. Nice slow rising carbonation, bubbles are quite thin to match. Head is light and slightly khaki colored with moderate retention, and a small three finger very soapy head that slowly settles, with no lacing.

Very closed bouquet, but there are some aromas here. Malt seems to hit first with a bit of toasty bread and sweet cinnamon. A little doughy a bit too. Hop angle seems very indistinct and hard to detect. A bit of dank quality peaks out, and there's a sense of burnt grain on this.

Palate isn't really bringing the goods. A bit of a watery base to it. Malt and hop action comes off dry, but also with a very light and extremely chalky aftertaste. Parching. Hints of malt sweetness are completely lost on this adding no more to the flavor.

For an IPA this fresh this is extremely lacking in the hop department for starters. Unfortunately the other qualities of malt presence and the watery body really don't help either. Not horrible but this is a bit of a dud.

An ok IPA but nothing noteworthy. Pours a crystal clear light copper color. Small to medium sized white head with average retention and some bands of lacing on the glass.

Aroma is mild citrus hops..The more floral Simcoe hops probably provide most of the aroma.

Taste is ok. There is some bitterness there balanced by bready malts. Mouthfeel is a bit weak and watery, Somewhat crisp and bitter, but definitely lacking.

Good thirst quencher but nothing special.
