3.3/5  rDev -17.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12oz. bottle dated 2/7/2014

A: Pours a light amber color. ive seen many beers this color and even darker classified as IPA. Really good 2" head that settles to about 1/4 inch and stays. Good lacing. Appearance is the best part of this beer.

S: Mostly caramel malt and some pine. Maybe a hint of citrus. Its not very complex or super inviting, really.

T: Mostly caramel/bread with pine. Kind of has an off bitterness that doesnt seem balanced or the kind of bitterness I like in a hoppy beer (I love bitterness in hoppy beers, btw). Bitterness stays on my tongue after each sip.

M: Light-Medium body. Kind of a harsh carbonation.

O: Meh. Probably wouldnt have again.
