3.6/5 rDev -5.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
22 oz. bottled poured into a pub glass.
A – Copper red, with a generous head. Left nice laces during consumption. Clear, no sediment. I do like the look of this beer.
S – Slight muddied hops, slight pine and misc citrus. Very subtle, doesn't really jump out of the glass at you.
T – Bland for an IPA. Hops are subtle, I suppose that is a standard for an IPA.
M – Clean finish, but leaves a lot to be desired, especially compared to other IPA's. Finishes quickly, but smooth. No lingering aftertaste.
O - Overall, just ok. I love a good IPA, and this was slightly lackluster for me. I expect big hops, earthiness and balanced citrus from an IPA, and this just didn't deliver completely for me. It's run of the mill, not outstanding, but not horrible, either. I think it is important to point out that I do prefer double and imperial IPA's, however.

3.53/5 rDev -7.6%

A-Pours a darker caramel color. Haven't seen an IPA this dark in quite a while. Decent sized head is sticky and full. Leaves blobs and circles of lacing.
S-Aroma is very balanced. Smells a bit faded in terms of hoppiness. Caramel and a decidedly floral hoppiness.
T-Flavor is too malty for my taste. Again, it tastes past it's prime. The hops brings forth floral and citrusy notes that seems to be faded. Balanced with caramel and wet, breadiness.
M-Medium bitterness. Medium body. Normal carbonation. A bit chewy. Pretty generic.
O/D-Definitely not a memorable IPA. Balanced and overall pretty agreeable but far from unique or assertive.
Serving type: on-tap
