1.64/5  rDev -53.3%
look: 2.75 | smell: 1.75 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 1.75 | overall: 1.5

On-tap at the Barley Oak, reviewed from notes.

Appearance: Clear gold with one finger of white head, not much lacing on the sides of a standard pint glass.

Smell: A bit of citrus, maybe a hint of grass and earth. Yet this is labeled an American IPA?

Taste: LIke the smell, not much at all. Carbonation is my best explanation maybe a hint of citrus, but I don't know..

Mouthfeel: Very light-bodied and more carbonated than I'd like. If it were really really hot maybe this would be refreshing.

Overall: A waste of $6, bartender told me it was an IPA from Brooklyn so I figured, why not? Don't try this beer.

Serving type: on-tap

Louisiana

1.76/5  rDev -49.9%
look: 3.25 | smell: 2 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 1.25 | overall: 2

Appearance: sunny yellow, slight haze, mostly transparent though, with a near bone white head. Looks decent.

Aroma: lightly lemony, faint citrus, and the buck stops there.

Taste: light lemon/citrus, nearly nonexistent.

Mouthfeel: I know the ABV is low, but this is Michelob Ultra watery.

Overall: sad, sad beer. I had a Green Flash Surfs up before this and thought it was sort of average...I appreciate it a lot more after this.

Serving type: on-tap

3.11/5  rDev -11.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.75

a - Hazy, medium head, I don't love the color actually, but the haze is kind of nice.
s - very, very nice nose. Orange, citrus, grapefruit, a little pine, maybe some tropical fruit as well. Maybe even a litle grape.
t - oh. oh. this went wrong really fast. I have NEVER had an IPA that smelled so good and tasted so different. Very little hop flavor, bitterness, malt flavor. Very watery. A bit of diacetyl, maybe even vegetal/DMSey. This is a weak IPA. Very disappointing. I might not have rated it this low, except the aroma was so exciting. What happened here? Not even sure how this happened. It is from a keg, and assumed to be fresh.
m - Watery. Low carbonation. Not good.
o - Amazing aroma. What happened? Is it possible this is old, even out of the keg? But why did it smell so good? Really confused.

Serving type: growler

3.13/5  rDev -10.8%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

picked up a mini 12oz growler earlier today. enjoyed from a brooklyn snifter.

brew poured a murky but transparent yellow orange with hardly any head. spotty oily lacing and hard to build up any action in the glass. nose is fairly piney and soft fruit. clean and soapy. taste is also soft fruit, piney hop and soapy clean. body is under carbed...could be from the growler? very watery with soft soda like fizziness. overall, a bit too sessionable for me. dial back the abv, but don't dial back the flavor and punch. not bad, just too watery for me...pretty much a watered down ipa.
