3.43/5 rDev -5.8%
Poured from 12 oz bottle into schooner glass.
Appearance: a 1" bubbly off white head dies awake quickly with some moderate lacing. Color is a quite hazy orange-copper with a bit of sediment in suspension.
Aroma: sweet orange, grapefruit, and nice malty backbone.
Mouthfeel: medium bodied, frothy, and quite sticky with a fairly dry finish.
Flavor: Sweet orange, grapefruit dominate with some caramel and whole wheat bread flavor. There is a strong lingering grapefruit/citrus rind bitterness in the finish.
Overall: very good ipa.

T-It had a mostly bitter flavor featuring a blend of floral, citrus, and grainy flavors and mild sweet and sour components.
M-Mouthfeel is fairly wet and watery body with average carbonation and fizz, yielding to a dry finish.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass.
A: Pours a semi-hazy copper color. The head is about a finger high, with an eggshell shade. Retention isn't amazing, and the head only leaves a modicum of lacing behind.
S: Just as I feared, the nose is really malty and sweet. Having said that, there are some enjoyable notes to be found - it also brings some decent apricot and pineapple notes. Still, the hops here are way too mild for me.
T: The flavor threw me a curveball - this is kind of bitter all around. Actually, no, it's kind of GENERICALLY bitter all around. Despite the bitter presence, it remains rather malty from the start to the finish. There is one aspect I enjoy, though: the finish has a good stone fruit flavor. Otherwise, this one is meh.
M: There's some good news on the feel: it's fairly dry, allowing it to go down fairly easily. However, it isn't particularly crisp or clean. Much of the dryness seems astringent more than anything, and combined with the sharp carbonation, makes it a bit harsh in the mouth.
O: This tastes really old school. It's somewhat malty, pretty bitter, yet devoid of hop flavors. It isn't an awful beer, just...way behind the times for an IPA. I'm getting a picture in my head of this beer singing "old gray mare, she ain't what she used to be..." while more modern IPAs like MBC Lunch walk past the old man, wondering why he's making a fool of himself.
