3/5 rDev -23.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5
Poured from a 22oz. bomber into a pint glass.
A: A very light tan head forms atop a beautiful clear orange amber liquid.
S: Earthy overtones backed up by some citrus and piney hops in the background. (Im curious if I would have detected them if I had not known this was an IPA)
T: Sweet caramel malt hits me up front with not a whole lot following it. Upon inspecting the label, I discover that this IPA "delivers an intense hop bitterness without the bitterness". Isn't that akin to buying a Corvette with a Honda motor? How is it possible to have "intense hops" without bitterness?
M: A tad on the thin side with fairly intense carbonation.
D: If it doesn't taste greaT, i'M NOT DRINKING IT.
Serving type: bottle

3.86/5 rDev -1%
look: 4.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4
A: deep red hue, slightly red (although this is a dark bar), very thin head
S: fruity and bitter, freshly cut wood (elm?)
T: Immediate bitter bite, nodes of grapefruit, lemon-peel, and woody. The last sips were better than the first (maybe due to warming)
M: Tingly and dry (gingerale mouthfeel without carbonation level) Flavor sticks to the mouth longer than most.
O: Drinkability- decent. It is comparable to Surly furious with water-downed citrus. Head dissolves very quickly. Aftertaste is good at first, but stayed into the next lager. Not bad- would drink again, but not rave worthy.
Serving type: on-tap
