3.6/5 rDev -2.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
A: Pours a light golden color with a thick off-white creamy head that has moderate retention in the glass.
S: The smell is all hops with a strong pine and lemon citrus smell. Not much else besides the hop going on here.
T: Whenever I drink an IPA for the first time, I always brace myself for a punch of bitterness that I expect. This does not have that. There is some bitterness and a slight citrus taste that is balanced by a sweet finish with just a hint of bitterness on the tongue. It is unusually balanced for an IPA.
M: A creamy thick bodied feel with medium carbonation on the tongue and a dry finish.
O: I prefer my IPA's to punch me in the face with hops and bitterness. This beer does not do that but it is still a good brew. It does not excel but it is definitely worth a shot - especially since Saint Arnold donates the profits from each sale to Operation Homefront supporting the troops and families.

4.18/5 rDev +13.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
Poured amber/honey colored with 2 finger width head that quickly dissipates. There is mild lacing on the side of the glass. Strong citrus notes with floral hints to the aroma. Citrusy, malty taste of front that is quickly followed by a bitter, hoppy, piney taste. Lightly malted on the end. Strong bitter aftertaste. Not a bad beer, but there are definitely better IPAs. There is something just off about the hops. With that being said, the profits from this beer go to a good cause, so please pick one up if you see it.
