3.63/5  rDev +2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Served - bottle into Pint Glass

Appearance
1inch head with a marvelous copper brown color. Plenty of carbonation bubbles rising to the top. Head held throughout the experience.

Smell
Malty and hoppy scent with some fruity and pine tones.

Taste
Lots of pine taste. Hoppy bitter, and caramel malts. Not much of a range of flavors.

Mouthfeel
Medium body with moderate carbonation.

Overall
A decent IPA, but pretty bland in flavor. Could use some more complex flavors.

Serving type: bottle

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12 oz. can poured into a Flying Dog goblet (no dating)

A: Nice copper body with nice head that recedes rapidly but leaves some lacing and a nice collar.

S: Sweet malt/pine with a great overall hop presence.

T: Light in body but with a solid malt and hop balance that is refreshing and easy-drinking.

M: Small rough bubble carbonation along the tongue.

O: This is great coming out of the can, which helps preserve the hops from the light. I'd rather buy an old IPA in a can over one in a bottle (or at least one with no date). Good enough, but they have better IPAs and beers that I would go after first.

Serving type: can
