2.73/5  rDev -28.5%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2

Appearance-Pours a dirty/hazy tangerine into the glass, moderate head, decent retention.

Aroma-Grapefruit and lemongrassy aromas upfront, caramel malt makes its presence felt on the nose as well.

Taste-A little weak upfront with primary grassy flavors of noble hops, not what I look for in an IPA, the Cascade comes through somewhat but clashes with the noble hop flavors rather than melds, the caramel malt brings it together somewhat but this beer could definitely use some tweaking.

Mouthfeel-Medium-light and a little water, carbonation is mild as well.

Overall-I can see what this beer is trying to be and what the brewer was going for but it's just not executed all that well.

Serving type: can

4.11/5  rDev +7.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 12 ounce can into a willibecher. No date on can, but I would guess medium freshness based on other beers I picked up at the same store.

Appearance: Pours a hazy (opaque) medium amber/gold and leaves 2 fingers of white head that fade slowly and leave plenty of lacing.

Smell: Nice citrus, lemon rinds, definitely hop forward. A hint of malts. Pleasant, light and citrusy.

Taste: Follows the smell nicely: citrus rinds, blood orange, a hint of pepper, malts. Very easy drinking.

Mouth-feel: Medium carbonation with a medium, slightly creamy body. Finishes smooth.

Overall: This is a well done, easy drinking IPA. If this were available in my area, this would be one of my go to IPA's. Nice citrus aromas and flavors, nothing negative in there whatsoever.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A: The beer is a light reddish brown color, with a short head that fades quickly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma is very fruity slightly piney with a nice hops background and slight sweetness

T: The taste is well-balanced with citrus sweetness and hops bitterness. Eventually the hops flavor wins out. The malt presence is very complimentary. The after-taste is slightly bitter.

M: Crisp and very smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is clean and dry.

D: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, good representation of style, this is a very good beer to stick with for an entire evening.

Serving type: Poured in pint glass from can
