12oz bottle in a pint glass

A - Pours a cloudy medium amber with a nice thick head that falls in a minute or two leaving some nice lacing.

S - I smell grass and yeast

T - This is an unusually bitter IPA. Not too complex. Less malt and more hops would have been better. But it drinks ok as it is. If I were doing a blind taste test I would swear this was a pale ale.

M - Not overly carbonated and a hoppy bitterness aftertaste kicks in after a short while.

O - This beer is definitely not on my favorites list by any means. I am glad I tried it.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Extremely yeasty. Bright orange-brown in hue with excellent foam and lacing. This really looks old school.

Smell: Pine hops with grapefruit.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Grapefruit and a hint of caramel. Nice balance in the flavor. Mouthfeel is a bit watery in the finish.

Overall Drinkability: An old-school ale with excellent balance.

Poured orange amber and hazy with a creamy light tan head that persisted and left lacing.

Smell has elements of citrus, resin, and pineapple, but overall is very faint.

Taste..citrus, orange and tangerines. Light mango. Mandarin orange. Nice medium level of bitterness falls in somewhere behind the washing of flavors. Mouthfeel is a little bit loose and on the lighter side. Lingering bitterness. Clean finish.

This IPA has a lot of nice flavors within however my major complaint being that although the flavor is there, it's far too subtle. Good level of bitterness however. Quite drinkable. Needs a little more flavor.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

hazy. grungy. copperish. has a head.

not much aroma. some hop resin. bit o' malt

solid bitterness but not enough hop flavor/aroma to go with it. maybe not fresh? no date info on the bottle so who knows (annoying). enough malt to be interesting if it had more hop flavor.

feels like a hoppy beer. a little oily. solid.

not mush else to say. i was not that impressed. i have 5 more bottles to drink.
