A clear amber-copper color this IPA displays modest white coverage on top with decent striations of lace in retreat. The nostrils encounter a skunky lemon bread. A very nice blend of yeast and hop, sort of a pilsner-IPA idea. The taste buds enjoy a much more hop heavy citrus with a sharp bite that is followed by the skunky bread theme as you finish. This is nearly light bodied with a pretty aggressive carbonation that delivers a crisp, refreshing feel. At times some lemon cake sweetness sneaks through but for the most part this is a bitter bread IPA. Definitely gets the job done and will keep your hop hunger satiated!

3.68/5  rDev +5.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours a lightly hazy orange color. The head is medium sized, with a somewhat dense, creamy texture. Retention is good, and some decent lacing sticks to the glass.

S: Light maltiness in the nose, with faint whiffs of caramel sweetness. Hop aromas are fruity, citric, and floral. Lemon and grapefruit are most prominent. Some interesting resiny notes are also detectable.

T: Some modest maltiness up front. Mild caramel sweetness. Hop bitterness is strong, with big citric, floral, and resiny flavors. The finish carries some lasting lemony, grapefruit-pithy flavor.

M: On the thin side of medium. Carbonation is average, with some prickly quality. The finish grows increasingly dry, though with an odd thinness. I would have preferred a touch more body throughout.

O: This is a fine IPA. I like the hop bill well enough, both in aroma and flavor. The malts are a bit too blank (or thin) of a canvas for me to really dig in and enjoy this more.

3.38/5  rDev -2.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 12 oz brown bottle into a pinot noir wine glass. Bottled on 02/10/14 on bottle neck. Single purchased at Total Wine (Norwalk, CT) for $1.99.

A: Crystal clear orange-amber with 1-finger of nearly white, small-bubbled head with good retention and plenty of lacing all over the glass.

S: Mosaic-y hops aroma with a lot of berry and melon aromas mingling with some floral and lemon-lime citrus. Maltiness is crackery and bready. No yeast or alcohol component. Great nose overall.

T: Unfortunately the flavor doesn't measure up to the nose with the maltiness falling flat, flabby in nature, which doesn't mesh too well with the floral and minty soap-like hoppiness. No alcohol or yeast esters though. Something happened with the combination of caramel malts and hops which really didn't work. Not horrible, but the soapy aftertaste is a little astringent and a little tough.

M: Drinks a little more like an amped-up APA than an IPA with a smaller body than it should have and softer carbonation.

O: Pretty disappointing beer from Weyerbacher overall -- there is a recipe or fermentation problem with this beer, as it has a soapy quality -- probably mor eint he hops-malt combination that is not working.
