look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4
Pours a hazy amber color with a thin beige head that retains ok. The aroma is mostly grainy, along with some faint citrusy, pine and herbal hops, fruity esters and just the suggestion of alcohol. The taste is a step up from the aroma, with big citrus and herbal hops upfront, along with some caramel and grainy malt, fruity esters, biscuit and some alcohol. The mouthfeel is on the thick side and grainy, and drinkability is good. A decent stab at an IPA, but the grainy mouthfeel and inauspicious aroma hold this beer back.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a clear amber color with a two finger head of off-white foam. The head has a decent level of retention, slowly fading to leave a heavy level of lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the beer is nice and interesting aroma overall. It has a sweet aroma of tangerine and caramel mixed with some melon smells of honeydew and cantaloupe. Along with these aromas are some nice hop smells of a grapefruit citrus as well as a subtle aroma of a floral and grassy hop.
Taste – The taste begins with a malty and bready flavor mixed with some sweeter flavors of caramel and tangerine. The caramel fades quickly, but is replaced by more tangerine and some other sweeter flavors of light fruits. The hop is very light upfront with just a hint of grapefruit. The grapefruit grows a bit stronger as the flavor advances, but never really grows all that potent. A little bit of a grassy and floral hop flavor come at the very end, mixing with the rest and leaving a rather sweet and malty lightly hopped flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thinner side with a carbonation level that is average. A bit thicker of a body would have been better for the malty and fruit flavors all while helping bolster the hop flavors of the brew.
Overall – The flavor was alright, but not really all that hoppy and sorta weak for an IPA. Nothing too outrageously good here.
