3.31/5  rDev -0.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3

Pours a fizzy bubbly almost 1 finger head that fades at a med pace, plenty of spotty lacing, nice reddish amber brown semi clear colored beer.

Nose brings some lame style hops, a bit earthy and grassy, little leafy, light pine, chewy stale hops, sweet reddish toasty amber candy like malts as well.

Taste comes with some mild sweetness, more toasty reddish amber malts, a little candy and caramel malt flavors. Then bitterness, some bitterness but not a lot, earthy grassy chewy slight piney almost stale like hops, despite the bitter hops and sweet malts, they don't seem to blend well or balance each other, just a poor job it seems. Finish is semi sweet semi dry, little sticky, lingering toasty amber slight candy caramel malts, more piney earthy again stale hope flavor, and bitterness that starts to rip like an ESB that is too much chewy grassy slight herbal hop.

Mouth is med bod, decent carb.

Overall meh, nothing really well done, more like a amber ESB than anything, hops are not the right kind for an American IPA, and taste kinda stale, and the malt and hops don't balance somehow. Not a very well done beer IMO.
