3/5  rDev -16.2%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A: Poured from the bottle into a snifter glass. Body is clear gold when poured a small head that dissipates while drinking leaving minimal lacing

S: very light floral hops not much malt at all.

T: Sweet malt mild bread taste. floral and piney hops but very light

M: medium body with medium carbonation

O: ok beer great starter ipa for someone wanting to try but for those used to strong IPA it's nothing special and possibly a disappointment for major hop heads. nothing really overwhelming about this beer beside it being ok/average commercial beer...

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Best by date of Dec is notched on this one

A: poured into an IPA glass to a clear light gold topped by three fingers of dense slightly off white head with good retention and nice lacing
S: smells of citrus, pine and floral hops with a little caramel sweetness
T: taste is muted hops with whispers of citrus and pine with some slight caramel sweetness. swallow is a good blast of hops on the back end with some oily floral notes that linger for some time
M: Medium on the mouth with soft and slightly prickly carbonation with a refreshing finish
O: A little weak on the front but makes it up on the back. Could be better but it isn't terrible and the hop flavors are there.

I know other people want to compare it to a full ipa and with that in mind I would give it a around a 3.5. However if I review it for what I feel like it is... I don't want to say that it's a light tasting IPA as it has a full flavor just not the full bitterness one would come to expect with a west coast IPA. It has a (and I don't like fruit flavored beer) fruity impact of grapefruit. Not sweet or overly powerful just a hint of citrusy grapefruit along with a light touch of pine. It's an IPA you can drink more than two of and they still taste fresh.

Just my two cents... Spend them or don't ;D
