look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

A - Pours a hazy orange copper color with a thin white head (1/2") that leaves some lacing.

S - Piny and bready with some malt sweetness. Smells like an English IPA. Smells pretty good. Hops aroma takes a back seat on this one imo for an AIPA.

T - Hmm.... I once brewed an Irish Red which fermented too high and had a strong taste of fusel alcohol. That's the first thing I thought of when I took my first sip. The taste is not much like the smell. Almost medicinal in a way but it's covered by the sweet maltiness. Subdued hop flavor and more of an alcohol malt bite to it. I was expecting much better.

M - Slick with moderate carbonation.

D - I probably wouldn't buy this again. Although the born on month shows Jan and it's now March, it still tastes decent leaning towards bad. I've been drinking some hoppy IPA's so that may have tainted my palette so I won't score less because of it but I wasn't really impressed with this one.

I had this while dining at Bone-Fish Grill. I thought it was on tap, so a bottle was a little bit of a disappointment (not that that's the beers fault). Typical IPA aroma and a bright orange amber color with light carbonation. It had a good mouth feel, and then a surprising finish/after taste. Almost a tannin like taste from a red wine. It was worth trying, but I doubt I'll try it again. I've found other IPAs I like more.
