look: 5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3

Poured a bright clear gold with tons of bubbly carbonation. Had a full finger of white head. Leaves a lot of lacing.

Smell is very muted and I'm able to get just a little bit of earthiness and sweet malt. It is bitter, but I'm not getting much flavor at all outside of that.

Mouthfeel is spot on for a single IPA, crisp and refreshing, without a whole lt of stickiness.

Very drinkable but without any flavor so this is an average beer at best.

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

Served on-tap in a non-descript tulip. About a one-finger light tan head over a clear amber - orange body. Nice lacing along the top of the glass.

Pleasant hop aroma of pine resin and lemon grass. Slight note of bready malt in the background.

Tasty flavor that includes hop-centric IPA flavors of pine cone, grassy notes, and light citrus, especially grapefruit.

Medium thickness in the mouthfeel with a lighter hop oil texture. Overall, a very solid IPA that I would gladly keep in my fridge.

Serving type: on-tap

Temp around 45 degrees fahrenheit

A- golden orange, medium carbonation, one inch of head which fades after a few drinks

S - sweet biscuit

T- pine and citrus

M- smooth with a small bite at the end

O- Probably one of the most consistent beers I drink. Served from a Chimay chalice. This is the beer that I consistently go to and recommend for a basic IPA
