3.04/5  rDev -12.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Pours a slightly hazy gold orange color with a big 2 finger foamy white head that was packed with all different sized bubbles and faded very slowly; the head was so thick you could run your finger through it, and it dissipated slow leaving good foamy lacing that coated the sides and rings as it went down.

Smells of piney hops, hay, earthy tones, floral hops, malt, wet bread, biscuit, herbs, grains, and peat moss. Smells more like an English IPA, as the hops fizzle out after the initial burst and hoppy whiff. Not a memorable aroma, bordering on forgettable.

Tastes like it smells, with piney hops/pine cone, hay, grains, earthy tones, light floral hops, malt, orange peel, wet wheat bread, biscuit, herbs, and mild spices like pepper and coriander. There’s only a hint of caramel sweetness, as the leafy herbal taste and feel seem to dominate the palate and coat the tongue with an oily hop residue. Balance is good, but the hops are a bit too tame for an American IPA, so this didn’t really excite me that much.

Mouthfeel is light and crisp, with light and almost flat carbonation, a medium body with a lot of bready malt notes, and a slightly bitter finish that is grainy with some subtle sweetness. It goes down easy, but really lacks any real IPA punch to make it fun to drink.

It was decent overall and some people may even consider this a session beer. It’s not flavorful enough to be a session beer for me, and the herbal and grainy combo just didn’t work here – it was balanced, but it was balanced mediocrity. So damn average that it seems below average.
