Serving Type - 355ml bootle, poured into a small pint glass

Appearance - Pours a reddish-yellow amber colour, with about a finger of white forthy head that leaves behind some nice lacing. Filtered.

Smell - Delightful smelling, Predominantly toffee and caramel smells, with some citrus notes.

Taste - Much like the nose, tastes are caramel and toffee. Citrus comes secondary - maybe grapefruit or very, very light lemon. It finishes with a strong hop kick that lingers.

Mouthfeel - Medium carbonation, medium body. Nothing particularly notable going on.

Overal - 4/5

Bottle from the Hop Tour 6 pack. Purchased in Dade City Florida at a supermarket. From notes.

A - Poured amber and bright. Mild carbonation and one finger of light beige head. Decent retention with a full finger and OK lace.

S - Malt, sugar, citrus. Balanced but a little odd there.

T - Boozy pineapple, citrus, good malt backbone. Sugary.

M - Rough bitterness thoughout in the mouth. Good carbonation, medium body.

O/D - Not my favourite IPA by a long shot. Definitely a run of the mill example. Nothing stands out as memorable, and even though it's balanced and fairly easy to drink, it's a touch rough and doesn't have very much depth.
