3.7/5  rDev +3.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Another IPA with reviews all over the place-- but having just had IPAs by Aftershock (wretched), Peak Organic (unpleasant), and Rough Draft (average)-- this doesn't seem bad at all.

This starts out with a citrus and resin combination on top of a browned English muffin. The aftertaste is both bitter and resiny. Pours a clear golden amber with hints of brown in the Duvel tulip. Quite thin and quite bitter at the end, but that interesting roasted pine-pitch flavor saves the day.

Nice suds with every pour and a bubbly mouthfeel. A mellow pumpkin hint with a warm malty mouthfeel. From the 12 oz bottle bought at Trader Joe's. Another decent beer in the Full Sail line-up.

3.45/5  rDev -3.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

On-tap @ the Firehouse Meridian ID. Served in a pint shaker.

A: Gold body, mostly clear, with a little white head and lacing.

S: Flowery, faintly citrus hop component with a crackery malt backbone. Maybe caramel? Faint pine or resin as well.

T: Orange/citrus pith and flowers again, with a light pale malt base with a decent dose of cracker. Faint caramel too, and light bitterness overall.

MF: Lightly bodied, lower bitterness.

O: Not too impressive, but not bad. Overall its less than the sum of its parts; to me, it isn't anything new, and it isn't anything that dozens of other brewers haven't surpassed.

Serving type: on-tap
