this is not what you would expect from an american IPA. It pours like an IPA but a little too tranparent. At first taste you think, was that water? but then the flavors sneak up on in the middle of the taste. overall the hop flavors are a little weak but the smoothness is unique. Alaskan did the same thing with their pale, but technically that is a golden and should be that way. The IPA could really use some more hop flavor, but if you want to get wasted off an IPA taste this is the beer for you.
Serving type: on-tap

12oz into the SN IPA Glass.
Pours a clear, coppery orange with a foamy off white head.
Citrusy, floral hop blend upfront both in the aroma and taste.
Medium bodied, average carbonation.
A decent IPA. Nothing particularly special, but still an enjoyable flavor profile.

3.18/5 rDev -13.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25
Appearance: Bright yellow glass with a lot of haze, holds a thin white cover of foam that leaves some lacing.
Smell: Not a lot going on, a mild hop note, mild clean grainy, almost corn note.
Taste: An APA, not an IPA, the hops just aren't up to the level expected. While everything here is well made, the hops are a bit grassy and earthy where I prefer a citric note. There is a slight metallic aftertaste that is annoying as well. Finish is sweet, where I should be getting a dose of hop oils.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium body, prickly carbonation, bit frothy.
Overall: Not my cup of tea. There is a woody, difference about this that I could see being a love or hate kind of thing, but it doesn't do it for me.
