look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Pours amber color with off-white head in mug at local burger joint. Good bit of sticky white lacing along sides of glass afterward.

Smell is light sweet malts with slight hint of hoppy citrus. Really not as much hop character as I was hoping.

Taste was sweet and malty up front. A bit of musty hop bitterness follows. Maybe a hint of pineapple. A little too bitter and not really a good citrus bitterness like other IPAs. Not terrible but just not that well balanced.

Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied. Average carbonation.

Overall this was o.k., but wouldn't seek it out again unless the recipe changes some.

4 for the bottled version, 3 for the draft. The bottled clearly has significantly more malt and brings the taste profile, combined with the abv, more into Arrogant Bastard territory. The draft version does not have enough malt to balance the hops and comes across as a thin, hop-dominated brew.
