look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: light orange to deep yellow. A finger of a white head. Strong retention and lacing. Hazy and almost opaque

Smell: slightly strong and sweet crystal malts. Some grassiness. Citrus to herbal and earthy hops.

Taste: opens up with some grassiness along with some strong crystal sweetness. Citrus and herbal hops come through. At the end there is a slight honey like sweetness.

Mouthfeel: light drinkable. Bitter. Some lingering. Not quite as refreshing as some ipas

Overall: not as good as I have tasted it on tap a few times. If it weren't local and fresh I don't id go for it again. Just an average ipa

12oz can poured into a snifter. The brew pours with a polished clarity and a silky rich khaki cap that fades to a thin film leaving stringy lace on the glass.

The smell is like footy pils grain with a bready sweet nose and a hint of butter. Plenty of herbal hoppiness is also present like classic simcoe notes that are catty. Strange how much the nose on this is focused on malt instead of hops. Very atypical for an IPA.

The flavor has a very strong maltiness like footy pilsner grain, slight buttery diacetyl and then catty simcoe hops that are slightly fruity/floral. There is an upfront sweetness and fresh bready grain character that fades to the bitterness of the hops. Its not a terrible tasting beer, just stylistically in the wrong ball park.

This is medium bodied with moderate carbonation. A strangely fresh and inviting grain character with perhaps too much malt focus for what I prefer in an ipa. At times, it almost feels like the yeast quit working or didnt fully attenuate the brew. Im really not sure whats going on here but something seems off in all 3 cans I tried of this.
