3.63/5 rDev -2.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5
A - Poured into a Boddington's pub glass vigorously. Massive head that leaves insane lacing around glass, nice sticky look. Perfect golden amber hue with some columns of carbonation rising to the surface. Good lookin' beer!
S - Picking up a burst of hops, that then kinda dies down into nothin. Still feel some citrusy cereal sweetness that also fades away.
T - First taste is a powerful bitter punch of hops, some corrosiveness and acidity with huge licks of citrusy lemon and a little pineapple. Aftertaste is some salty cracker and pound cake heaviness, maybe even some cereal sweetness at the end. Very pleasant flavor.
M - Smooth and sticky at the same time, it really lingers on the inside of your mouth, but it feels opaque, like something's missing.
O - Not a bad IPA by any means, quite the opposite actually, wonderful flavor and color. A great beer for the end of a hard day.

Why do I think a slightly hoppy Bud Light. Better than Coors but not by much. Very disappointed. I really would have been better off with a Bud Light or Coors and saved about five bucks! I would not recommend this beer at all. It's the first High Point I've tried and probably the last.
