I'm not sure why this has a bad reputation on here. My I-4 IPA came from the Brewery in the form of a one gallon growler. It seems that it either has a problem of being old in a bottle or in the wrong type of glass.

Mine tastes fresh - both the hops and the malts. It has a nice balance, but is a lot more like an English IPA as mentioned. It's not a punch in your mouth. At 48 IBU it's also not a wimp. It's dry hopped 60 minutes but also seems more hoppy than the than the Dogfish 60 minute because it is dryer and has a lighter mouth-feel. It seems a lot like a dryer Oscar Blues Dale Pale Ale. That's a compliment. (629 characters)

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a very dark brown color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is light, a bit of citrus, not much else. Taste is surprisingly malty, caramel, a light hop bitterness, drinks more like an English IPA. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a decent beer. (290 characters)

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. (1,587 characters)
