Freshly tapped at my local watering hole

Darker for ipa and clearer than most(reminds me of Yuengling but laces real nice)
Subtle hops but seems very balanced
Minimal hop bite or malt
Goes down too easy for ipa, watery
Overall I can say I wouldn't order it again unless it was only ipa available, very drinkable but not a go to if other options!

Bottle poured to a pint glass. Nice dark amber color with slight haze. Pale tan head persists well, with nice lacing to the bottom of the glass. The aroma is a blend of sweet malt and spicy hops, with neither one dominating the other. I expected a bit more hop aroma complexity from this beer. Taste is similar to aroma, but with the complexity I wanted. Sweet caramel malt is quickly overtaken by medium-high hop bitterness. Bitterness is a tad low for my taste, but balances the malt nicely. Hop flavor is fairly high, featuring perfumey and floral notes. I would like more of the spicy hop flavors in this beer. Medium body with good carbonation and a slightly astringent, dry finish. Overall a very approachable, drinkable IPA, but not in my top tier of this style, even for readily accessible beers.
