3.64/5 rDev +5.8%
12 ounce bottle, w/o freshness dating that I can find.
Pours pretty typical almond amber, medium tan head, slight in size, then leaves a moderate film, collar and spotty lace.
Mostly malt on the nose.
This is a malty IPA. Some hops late and in the finish. Caramel notes make this one taste like a scotch ale with a semi hoppy finish, with moderate grapefruit notes poking their heads out.
Full bodied with the carbonation on point to slightly on the slow side.
Ehh, nothing to impressive or exciting going on here

2.76/5 rDev -19.8%
Bottle: Poured a light amber color ale with a medium size foamy head with OK retention. Aroma of grainy cereal notes with dank hops is not very good. Taste is also dominated by weird grainy cereal notes with dank hoppy notes. Body is average with OK carbonation. Something is wrong with the malt bill, the hops profile or some of the other ingredients that were added but in any cases this is not something I would want to drink again.

3.23/5 rDev -6.1%
A: The beer is slightly hazy light amber in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high beige head that gradually died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light aromas of citrusy hops are present in the nose; these ultimately become replaced by the smell of root vegetables as the beer warms up.
T: When slightly warmed, the taste has an initial dash of citrusy hops and is quickly followed by flavors of maca root, which linger through the finish and seem a somewhat astringent. There is a slight amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate with a hint of crispness and a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I wouldn't consider this the easiest of beers to drink because the maca root makes the taste seem astringent. It definitely tastes more like an English IPA compared to an American IPA because the hops are not that assertive and are overshadowed by the maca root.
