3.03/5  rDev -15.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Pours out a cloudy amber with very little suds. Some lacing around the glass here.
Smell is malt first then the hop. It's not very strong in the hop dept. either.No fruityness here and it seems way too one-sided.
Taste isn't too bad but it lacks the lemon peel and grapefruit rind that I am used to having with my IPA's.
Mouthfeel is just a little sticky but the bitterness is boring and doesn't make me want to take another drink.
Overall this is just average. Not a lot going on with the hops and the alcohol seems too overwhelming despite such a low ABV.

Nothing special but the color is awesome.Smells like an IPA bitter and piny.Taste is a basic blend of hops and possible malt and licorice but Im not sure.Could be better if it was a bit sweeter.Again nothing special and most likely will not purchase again.

3.51/5  rDev -2.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A pretty dark amber appearance in the glass. Starts with a Thin, dissipating head, and with unremarkable lacing. Hops on the nose. Piney, peppery, and spicy with a bitter finish. A touch of sweet malt. A solid but forgettable brew. Worth a try but will probably not revisit.
