3.2/5  rDev -11.8%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A- It's a orange/copper color with a one finger white head. While I liked the color, the head cleared off quicker than I would have liked.

S- I enjoyed the smell as I noticed hops at first and then picked up some sweet, caramel malts. This definitely is not the West Coast IPA's that I typically go for, but I liked the balance.

T- I was a little shocked about how malty this beer was. I knew that it wouldn't be as hoppy as the beers I was used to, but it was less though than I imagined. It started off somewhat bitter and overly carbonated. I taste some mild hops in the middle but not too much. The finish is mostly sweet and malty.

M- Nothing to significant here. It was a little thin compared to other IPA's I've had but nothing terrible. Pretty average.

D- Since it is not very hoppy or bitter, it comes across as drinkable. However, it's not what I was expecting out of an IPA. The hops were almost nonexistant in my opinion and it seemed more like an ESB than an IPA. This is not necessarily a bad thing, but it's not an IPA I'll turn to again.

Nice english IPA of a hazy orange/ocher color that goes to a yellowish tone in the corners of the glass. Foam is ok.
Smell and taste are full of citrus, specially lemon, orange and grapefruit. Pear and apple tones also appear and that makes this beer quite juicy. Maltiness, bitterness and hoppines are at an ok level but could be higher, specially maltiness.
Body is ok too. Didn't enjoy the mouthfeel too much because of the acidity that comes in corners of the lips.
