look: 3.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 1.75 | feel: 1 | overall: 3.25

Poured into a glass, moderate bubbly (not very foamy) head with little retention. Smelled lemony with some grains. Taste was extremely bitter (can't say I didn't expect it) and the mouthfeel was too grainy, almost like my tongue was being attacked. Aftertaste ... was just awful.

Overall it felt like I was drinking carbonated (lawn) grass extract.

Note to all potential brewers of imitations: If bitterness is the only thing people remember about a beer, it's probably a sign that some of the other characteristics need to be amped up a bit.

Disappointing - I almost wonder if I got a bad pack of it. The beer tastes bitter, but not in a hoppy way; more like there was too much yeast, or something along those lines. I'll have to try another one at some point, because most everything else I've had from Weyerbacher I've enjoyed.

But, I did really like the funding for shelters, and got to take a picture of my dog with the beer, so I'm happy to write it off as a charitable contribution.

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

STYLE: American IPA

ABV: 5.9%

LOOK: Sudsy copper and gelatinous. Not more than a bubble or two of carbonation and no head to speak of.

NOSE: An English IPA vibe. Much less American than expected. Some floral, piney hops are there, mostly overshadowed by leather and pavement if that makes sense.

MOUTH: Harsh. Astringent. And a too-long finish for what it is. Pulling myself together – petals, soap bar, one-way road, grapefruit rind.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Poured from a bottle into a perfect pint glass.

A. Decent light orange, slight golden, coloring. Thin white head, not much lacing.

S. Nothing spectacular, not much hop profile I can discern. Smells pretty average.

T. Average, some hops, but again nothing special. Tastes like a bitter lager.

M. Watery, crisp, I'd say refreshing but I'm not a huge fan of the smell or taste, here.

O. Glad I tried it, but won't flock back to this one any time soon.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

12 oz bottle into flying dog tulip. no bottled on date.

A: clear blond/orange. very clear. white head. good retention and lacing.

S: lemon. minty. a little bit of gin/herbal. reminds me a bit of a saison. or this was brewed with sorachi ace hops.

T: terribly bland start. bubblegum. a little metallic. minty. a bit tired. not sure when this brew was bottled but this body definitely didnt hold up well.

M: average carb on a pretty light/medium body.

D: like i said above, i believe this couldnt have been the freshest example of this brew from weyerbacher. hopefully it was better at one point, however ill probably never know.
