2.58/5  rDev -22.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

Smells quite good, dominated by grapefruit and flowery hop flavors. Taste is hoppy with a bit of alcohol, has a buttery aftertaste noted by the last reviewer. The buttery taste doesn't go well with the hops and really turns me off on this. The buttery taste kind of moderates to a grassy taste as the beer warms, but it's still not something I like. I applaud small breweries for trying stuff, but I really wish they could improve the aftertaste on this one.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Pours to a deep amber-orange color and thin white head with bits of lace. Aroma is bursting with citrusy domestic hops and sweet malt aromas. Flavor delivers strong hoppiness and supporting caramel malt backbone, as one expects in an IPA. Finishes pleasantly bittersweet.

Serving type: on-tap

2.83/5  rDev -15%
look: 3.75 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

On tap at the tasting room. Opaic golden body, whipped cream like head. Smell is of musty cat pee, moldy citrus- stop using pellets, and get fresh hops please. Taste is watery hay, grapefruit rind, and pithy bitter. Mouthfeel was creamy with prickly carbonation. This is a rather uninspired IPA, little to no fresh hop aroma, little to no hop taste. Do you guys know what is going on in the rest of the US?
