look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

12oz. Brown Bottle. Into Pint Glass.

A: Pours clear dark golden color. Thin white head turns to nothing within a few minutes. not much lacing to be seen.

S: Malts. Sugar. Light hops. Some caramel and fruits. Nothing special but not bad.

T/M: Sweet malts and bitter hops are balanced well. hops are piney but on the weaker less noticeable side. The malts are chewy with fruity notes. Medium bodied. Aftertaste is bittersweet. Also has an overall sugary taste.

O: Good IPA. Not enough of a hop presence. Malts taste good. Sugary. The beer has a good balance even though the ingredients are not too strong. There are much better IPA's around, but this one is still worth a look.

Cheers!!
