3.68/5  rDev -9.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance:
The beer is murky and brownish in color. There's a decent off white head to the beer with some decent retention.

Smell:
More of a malty smell here with little touches of sweetness and notes of prunes and currants. Not too terribly potent but apparent none the less.

Taste and Mouthfeel:
This beer oddly reminds me or raisin bran which is a cereal I enjoy quite a bit. Up front there's some semi sweet, but rich malts lending a smooth mouthfeel to the beer with just a sting of hop bitterness. These flavors soon transfer to more of a sun dried raisin flavor. The finish is pretty clean and there are some minor apricot notes in to the aftertaste.

Drinkability:
It's about as drinkable as any other IPA really. There's really nothing especially good or bad about this brew.

Bottom Line:
This beer seems to get quite a bit of hype in my opinion but I think it's just kind of your average good IPA. A good selection none the less.
