3.15/5 rDev -5.1%

On tap at BurgerFi in Winter Park, FL. Poured to a 16oz plastic cup—I’d prefer something else, but that’s how they served it so I’m just gonna roll with it.
Appearance (3.0): Pretty typical, kinda lackluster pour on tap: not much head (like, almost none at all), but with some modest, thin lacing on all sides, but doesn’t stick. The body is a deep amber color with a light chill haze—attractive enough. Very little retention.
Smell (3.5): A light, floral-grassy hop scent with some grapefruit juiciness underneath, which together dominate the nose—not much malt character, just a light undertone of the standard caramel / toffee aromas you find in an average homebrew kit-made IPA.
Taste (3.0): Relatively balanced, kind of malt-forward if anything. Toasted bread, some caramel undertones—but more toast than sweet. The hops hold a relatively modest presence, almost entirely a vegetal-floral bitterness without much hop flavor and none of the citrus character that the nose might have had. Some onion, but the hop flavors more or less stop there.
Mouthfeel (3.5): Better than average, but nothing special. Just about medium-bodied, with some modest carbonation that tingles nicely. It has a finish that’s neither dry nor slick—just sort of goes down easy.
Overall (3.0): Eh. It’s average. Nothing stands out, nor does anything suck. Just kind of does what it does, as an average, nominally hoppy, nominally pale, ale. It’s more of an amber, but it’d be average in that category, as well. Good enough for the price, if there isn’t much else around.

Half finger head with excellent lacing on a clear amber with slight golden hues body. Aroma is light and mostly is of caramel malts and candied citrus. Flavor is musty with breads, caramel malts, earthy hops with a grassy finish. Medium body and lighter side of moderate carbonation. This one is a little boring. The breadiness is nice but the hips are lacking.
