2.53/5 rDev -25.6%
look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75
Poured from a bottle into a pint glass
A: Deeper amber than normal for an IPA. moderate head with good persistence. Little to no lacing
S: Nothing dramatic. No hops on the nose at all. Malty with an fairly strong alcohol overlay (not surprising given the ABV).
T: Not sure why they choose to call this an IPA. No hop characteristics to speak of at all. Very malty/fruity with some alcohol on the back burner. Despite the ABV, light and reasonably refreshing.
M: relatively crisp, but quick fading on the tongue. Not particularly well carbonated, and what's there fades quickly (in less than 30 minutes)
O: I might have liked this better if they'd labeled it more accurately. I could even accept it as a pale ale. But an IPA?? No way. Someone needs to buy the Lancaster Brewing Co. some hops. If the ABV weren't so high, this could be a decent session beer, but at 7.5%, it would be a pretty short session. I've actually eaten at the LBC previously and the food was good, but as I recall, all their beers fall into this "too safe to offend" category.
