3.8/5  rDev -1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A - Pours hazy golden color, nice fluffy head that dissipates about halfway through and leaves a thick sticky lacing behind.

S -Bready, caramel malts up front with hops backing... interesting when you are used to SD style IPA's that are all about the hops this one catches you off guard. As someone else mentioned though, this is a take on an English style IPA.

T - Sweet, very rich malt, almost caramel with some earthy hops in the middle followed by a mild bitterness.

M - A thicker mouthfeel than other American style IPAs. Mild carbonation and a bit tangy.

D - This is a good cold weather brew, pretty heavy on the malts and sweetness. Not going to feel like doing much after one of these guys.

Overall - A pretty well balanced beer that could be a good alternative to a lager or amber IMO.

2.69/5  rDev -29.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 2.5

A: Lightly cloudy blonde color. Starts with a 1 finger white head that recedes to a simple white cap. Leaves decent lacing on the glass.

S: Mild hop scent. Some floral notes and slight sweetness.

T: Lots of bitter. Not really balanced out with anything. Late bitter after taste too.

M: Kind of spongy and "soft"

O: I really did not like this beer. The mouthfeel was off and the flavor was lots of bitter (not the highest I've ever had) but there was nothing else there to balance it out. The after taste is the real downer. It is lingering bitter. I will definitely pass on this in the future.
