3.3/5 rDev -15.2%
look: 2 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
A - Pale straw yellow in color. Half an inch head retention. For an IPA, it was lacking a nice fluffy head even while pouring. It also settled fairly quickly. Slightly lacking.
S - Reminds me of a czech pilsner or even German wheat beer in the nose. Not getting a whole lot of hop characteristics. Subpar for an IPA
T - Nice taste up front, then it seems to mellow out. The bitterness then comes forward on the finish, then it fades. Quite a roller- coaster on the palate. Starts Great, then fades on the palate, followed by a great finish that slowly fades. Not very smooth. I'm getting a lot of honey characteristics with subtle hops .
M - The mouthfeel is great. This is probably the category it actually excells in. Medium bodied and and refreshing mouthfeel. If only the taste reflected the feel.
D - You could definitely drink quite a few of these. Great drinkability, but lacking in a lot of punch and complexity taste-wise.
Overall I would say this is a good session beer if you want to drink a lot. But if you are looking for a true IPA as a treat, there are plenty of better IPA's out there.

Poured bottle into New Belgium globe
A-Pours a clear orange amber with one finger white head. Good spotty lacing.
S-Aroma is fairly sweet. Caramel, syrup, floral and hop notes.
T-Taste is moderate bitterness with a nice malt backbone. Flavors of flowers, caramel, biscuits, pine and a little spice.
M-Mouthfeel has a medium body with nice carbonation. Well balanced.
O-Overall an above average IPA. I really enjoy the chillwave the most then the erie monster second.
