3.74/5  rDev +8.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured into a Dogfish Spiegelau glass. Base of bottle says DOB 03/19/14.

A- Pours a medium amber color with a 1/2 inch off-white head that retains well before dropping down to a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a full sheet of surface foam. Sudsy non-resilient lacing. Little specs of sediment are seen floating in the body.

S- Floral, citrusy hop aroma that's quite sweet and a bit effervescent.

T- The flavor works off the bitterness more than the actual hop flavor but is still pretty moderate. As with other session IPAs, I'm trying to find some malt balance but there's not a lot there. As the drink wears on, each sip becomes less and less eventful. Just one-dimensional bitterness.

M- Sharp bite from the hops plus a bit of oiliness. Medium carbonation and a lightish body.

O- Glad I only got a single of this since it's one of the weaker Session IPAs I've had. Just nothing there to keep me wanting more. That said, it's still hoppy so I still somewhat enjoy it.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. 6/30

Pours bright amber with fluffy white foam. Sticks and recedes. Bright citrussy nose. Funky hoppy taste, ends clean. Little bitter hangs on. Floral taste. Almost like a hoppy saison. Good beer, easy drinking yet flavor rich. Nailed the right balance.
