3.19/5  rDev -5.3%

A - Cloudy, golden, yellow in color; Fizzy white head that hangs around before drinking

S - Didn't get much here other than lemony hops

T - A sweet, fresh, yet bitter taste; not very complex, a little malt taste beneath the hops

M - Sweet malty feel up front, bitterness on the back end

O - Not a bad beer, but with so many Extra Pale Ale choices out there, not sure I would revisit this one. But it's not a bad beer.

1.9/5  rDev -43.6%

12 oz bottle. Pours clear straw yellow with a medium creamy white head that goes to a thin film and laces the glass.

The aroma is subdued - some bready malts and a little grassy, almost skunky, hops.

The flavor is sweet bready malts with a little fruit and a lot of bitter grassy hops that taste a little noble-like. The mouthfeel is medium to light bodied and a little watery.

Overall, I don't really care for it. It has good bitterness - but it's more like a imperial pils.

Pros: Smooth. Cons: Hints of malted milk balls when it first hits the palette. To brewers credit they post an accurate description of the taste on the label: "Bready malt backbone..." Sorry to say that the balance of the 4-pack from the great FCB brewery is destined for the lower shelf in the back of my fridge.

Got a 4 pack at a local bottle shop for $2.99. The beer is okay at best but when you look at the price point it's great! Would I pay $9.99 for a 4 pack? Maybe. But at $2.99, you can't beat it! This isn't the best or worst IPA I've ever had but again, at the price it's at, I can't complain. Definitely a pretty solid session IPA even though it's rated ad an IEPA. For my taste & standards, I consider this a higher ABV, IPA. Nothing more, nothing less.

Poured into a shaker pint glass.

Look: A hazy, murky burnt orange body holds up a foamy cream colored head. Good head retention and lacing.

Aroma: A nice blend of citrus and pine.

Taste: Really sharp pine, a malty backbone, with a bitter finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, sticky.

Overall: Tasty and straight to the point.
