look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

This one comes out a bright copper, clarity is pretty good. The head is an even two fingers, retention isn't fantastic, but it doesn't look flat.

The nose is English in character for sure. Noble hop varieties expel grassy flavors from the aroma above slightly sweet toffee-like malt sweetness. Some fruity esters from deep within start to emerge as I dwell in further. Not a whole lot of intensity in there, but the flavors mingle together nicely.

Tartness overwhelms the mouth upon entry. Sour and bitter tones seem kind of messy as the beer struggles to achieve any sort of order. Only fleeting dashes of sweetness and toasty flavors come in to try and straighten things up. The finish is loooong and bitter, definitely aiding to drinkability.

It's very smooth and slick, there's enough body and carbonation to keep things positive. Not the best beer to come out of the woodwork.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

A: Dark copper, with brown and red tints. Clear with medium high carbonation. Surprising low head out of the bottle, however left a respectable layer of white foam for the long haul.

S: Wheat crackers, some rye bread and zesty citrus of orange rind. Maybe a little spiciness of lemongrass.

T: Cedar. Walnut. Orange rind. This brew had a nice chewy malt backbone. Nice long and slow pipe tobacco, malt vinegar and balsamic finish.

M: Starts off watery and juicy. Nice and Medium dry through the middle. Dryness lingers but remains mellow. Low acidity for your usual ipa. Really easy going.

O: Great everyday ipa. It's mellow and drinkable. The malt balances the hop nicely making it extremely versatile. The only downside to being a well rounded beverage means that it doesn't stand out in any particular way in the hops department.

Don't know why this beer garners such unenthusiastic reviews. I just had one, bought at random, and it's a delightful surprise. The flavor is citrusy without being over the top, and there is enough hoppiness and malt to be rewarding. True, it doesn't really come across as an IPA, and I think that's part of the problem: what is it, exactly? Honestly, I don't care - it's worth having on hand.
