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?

Served in a standard shaker at the tap room at the Brewery on 3/24/13. Pours a very hazy soft copper color with a very bubbly off-white head. Does not allow much light penetration. The smell is very subdued for an IPA with more bready malt smell than the hops. The hops a somewhat spicy and earthy overall with a little bit of soft flower smell to it. The taste was again surprisingly mild on the bitterness bill and very sweet overall. The malt just stood out a lot and the flavor was not quite astringent, but there was something off to it. The mouthfeel was soft with just a slight alcohol burn to it I didn't expect. I've had this beer before and really didn't think much to it, but this was a little bit off to me. I'll keep at it while I live in Little Rock, but it really did not do well on my palate.

3.28/5  rDev -1.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours dark amber with white head that dissipates pretty quickly.

Smell is floral with hint of tangerine.

Taste is sweet malt up front. There is a rank bitterness to it. Not the crisp refreshing bitterness that a good IPA has.

Mouthfeel is light bodied. Good carbonation.

Overall this was only fair.
