Bottle > Pint Glass

A - Copper in color with one finger of off white fizzy head, little lacing
S - Not a whole lot of aroma goin on here, some caramel malt, a little grass, some light hints of dark fruit.
T - Taste is primarily malt, which is a mixture of biscuit, and caramel, there's a light pine bight to it.
M - Just ok, medium feel, but chewy and kinda coating.
O - Bad IPA, very malt focused, and missing the mark by a long shot

I poured this brew into my tumbler at 45 degrees. The beer poured a cloudy mess that looked like pee, but with a tan head. The beer actually did not taste like a IPA which is good for me. It was not too bad, very light and kinda fruity. Not my fav beer in the world for sure and I'd have to say I most likely would not buy this again.

Really like this IPA. Very smooth, so many IPAs have that afterburner effect but not Misery Bay. Wonderful mouth feel and as I said, smooth as silk for an IPA. Decent amount of alcohol at 6.5% boosts the flavor but the alcohol content isn't over the top. A good beer, glad I found it.
