look: 2.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

I poured this from a 12oz bottle into a clean pint glass.

Appearance: Little to no head to speak of, very light gold color when held to the light and few carbonation bubbles. No lacing to speak of.

Smell: mostly hops. Some pine towards the end.

Taste: A good balance of hops and malt. The bitterness is certainly there but not as bitter as you might expect from an IPA.

Mouth feel: very clean and smooth but not very robust.

Overall: This beer really suffers from lack of head and color in my opinion. However it is very refreshing and not overly bitter for an IPA. I think I might buy this again but not overly impressed.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass in high elevation Libby, Mont. Bottled in January. Reviewed live.

A- One-finger white head. Large bubbles and very thin lacing. Extremely long retention. 10 minutes in and it is still strong. Honey color with particulate. Medium clarity.

S- Floral hops, some earthiness as well. Dank and wet smelling.

T- Bitter and surprisingly boozy. Metallic. Strange, sour and yeasty.

M- Heavier feel for the style. Meh.

O- This is a strangely dank IPA. I'm not really a fan of it.

look: 4.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

12oz bottle with no date. served in a mason jar

look is golden orange with lots of fine suspends sediment. spotty head and lacing hold back an otherwise beautiful beer. smell is weak: barnyard scent with some skunk and strawberries off in the background. taste is fishy, literally and figuratively. barnyard taste and floral/grassy hops. feel is light, with a pleasant lingering bitterness.

decent but forgettable; needed either more malt or hop presence. gave me some nice floral hop burps, tho.
