Poured from the bottle into a standard pint glass.
The beer pours a slightly cloudy amber color with a very little bit of off white head. Turns out this one could use a little more carbonation. You can pick up some hops in the nose, but there isn't anything particularly special about it. The taste is bitter from the hops. Reminds me a bit of grapefruit rind, but the juicy citrus notes aren't really there. Bitterness crushes the tongue in the finish. There is some bready malt behind the bitterness, but the bitterness dominates. The finish is dry.

3.38/5 rDev -2.9%

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.
