nothing special here unfortunately, as its my first beer from the freehouse and i was hoping for a little more. its a generic ipa, no visible flaws aside from a rather thin body than makes the whole thing go by too swiftly. its got a cascade hop type profile, higher alpha but lower dosed, overbalanced by sweet malt, possibly underfermented. i just need some more meat for the style, too light to hold onto, maybe in the spring and summer, but not this time of year. hops turn quite bitter in the finish, and hang around awhile. i see this as god ipa for those still on the fence about the style, or new to craft from yellow beer. its light enough to appeal to those folks, but flavorful enough to show what hops can do in a beer. thats about it though, as it doesnt really pass muster with a mature ipa palate.
