3.3/5 rDev -5.2%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25
A: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had an amber color and a mostly clear consistency. There was a half inch of foamy head that quickly dissipated. Pretty good lacing.
S: A decent aroma of malt, heavy hops, and a little bit of citrus.
T: Tasted of hops (a lot of harsh hops), some citrus, and a helping of malt in the finish. As it is with so many beers, one ingredient can dominate a flavor and throw it out of whack. Here it's the hops. There's a certain harshness because of them.
M: A well-carbonated beer with a bitter finish. Medium-bodied.
O: Not necessarily a bad beer, but should have been better. A very uneven beer.

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.
