look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a Surly Darkness chalice.

Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy golden orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. Solid two fingers of white head that slowly fade into a thin creamy layer.

Smell: A very hop forward aroma with lots of grass, pine, and citrus esters. Big upfront presence of earthy, floral, herbal, and citrus hops. Hints of wet grass along with some pine resin. Citrus hop hints of orange, lemons, grapefruit, pineapple, and tangerine. Pretty dank and bitter smelling. Some backing pale malt with hints of grains, cracker, and caramel. Very hop forward. A decent aroma.

Taste: Like the aroma suggests, a very hop forward and earthy taste with lots of grass, pine, and citrus esters. Upfront earthy and floral hops with notes of wet grass clippings and dank pine resin. Weed like taste. Citrus hop notes of orange peel, lemons, pineapple, grapefruit, and tangerine. Background pale malt presence with notes of caramel, grains, and cracker. Really hop forward as expected. Pretty decent taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Somewhat wet and oily. Bitter and fairly drying finish.

Overall: A pretty decent take on a IPA. Very grassy, bitter, and hop forward but its nice.

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.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3

Appearance: Pours a hazy honey color with a modest head that does a surprisingly good job in the lacing department

Smell: Grainy and grassy with a lemon Pine-Sol aspect

Taste: Very grainy malt flavors are joined by grass and a lemony/piney character, in the middle; the lemon builds into the finish, along with a minty and soapy aspect

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Not sure what the brewery was going for here but this just doesn't cut it for my palate; reminds me of some of the mediocre beers I had from Weyerbacher about 10 years ago
