3.63/5 rDev -5.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.
A - Cloudy golden yellow with a white one-finger head. Bubbles are small and tight, and not at all soapy. Solid amount of clumpy lacing.
S – Muted floral/hop resin smell. Also picking up a little sweet malt aroma that I wasn’t expecting, almost reminiscent of butterscotch.
T – Initial taste is grassy hops with a bit of earthiness and citrus, followed by a surprising bit of biscuity malt bringing a nice balance before the hops return again carry the finish. Overall flavor profile best described as “light”, with the hops being extremely mild for an IPA. Much closer to a standard pale ale.
M – Medium bodied, with an almost creamy feel. Carbonation is lively, which works well to help carry the flavor.
O – A very nicely balanced brew with some good depth, but ultimately I just found it too weak for the style to be satisfying. It’s like a really good beer that’s been neutered…just no balls. Had it billed itself as a standard pale instead of an IPA, I might have rated it a half point higher, because as a pale it’s not bad.
