look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured a cloudy golden color with a thin white head that dissipated into a ring of white, with abundant carbonation bubbles. It looks quite nice, very true to an IPA. Scents of cat urine upfront, which thankfully quickly subsides into a wonderful bouquet of tropical fruit, especially pineapple, citrus and pine resin. A typical American IPA aroma, but fairly nice after the initial aroma of cat subsides. Flavor begins with pine resin and tropical fruit with a light cracker malt backbone, but also a slight onion-like off flavor, a problem I also had with Racer 5, but not Café Racer 5. Moves into grapefruit peel and citrus pith bitterness and some herbal and grassy hops, with the same off flavor still present. Finish is bitter, with pine resin and some tropical fruit, the off flavor continues to be present. Aftertaste is bitter piney hops, some herbal hops, and again the off flavor. It's not a bad flavor profile all things considered, a good West Coast IPA that is nicely hop forward, however the onion flavor keeps it from being great. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, resinous, with moderate carbonation and a semi-drying feel. Nothing to fault here, very nice. Overall this is an okay West Coast IPA. It has a good aroma after it sits for a bit and a pretty good flavor. It's just that there are a few off aromas and flavors that detract from the experience. Still not bad, but not amazing either.

Serving type: on-tap
