2.99/5  rDev -23.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Best By date is about 6 weeks from now.

A: Crystal clear. Color is dark copper to light brown. Thick creamy head that leaves lacing with each sip.

S: Malty more than hops. Mostly pine and dank aromas. Minimal citrus.

T: Piney and resinous. Sweet. Very malt forward for an IPA. The beer offers complexity as the flavor changes from sweet, to floral, to a lingering bitter finish.

M: Thick, sweet and resinous. Carbonation is middle of the road for an IPA.

O: It's okay, but it's a little syrupy for my IPA tastes. Also I think the hop flavor, while quite present, is 1-dimensional.

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

Aroma: Floral, resinous, citrus and slight caramel notes.

Appearance: The beer pours dark copper, clear and has a creamy off white head that persists.

Flavor: Bitter with caramel malt back bone.

Mouth Feel: The beer has medium body with a semi-dry finish and leaves mild tingle on the tongue.

Overall Impression: The bitterness is prominent, while the hops aroma and flavor is not; a solid IPA worth drinking
