1.64/5  rDev -53.1%
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 -49.7%
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 -11.1%
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
