Wasn't quite as good in the bottle because of a metallic flavor that distracted from the overall goodness.

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

Pours slightly hazed amber. A thin head leaves some spotted lacing.

The smell is very mild for an IPA - some floral notes and a hint of citrus - with some caramel.

The taste is of bitter grapefruit upfront with firm caramelized sourdough. The taste is stronger than the nose. Though not a "hop-bomb" of an IPA, there is certainly enough bitterness, which becomes aspirin/herbal to land it clearly in IPA territory. A firm caramel backing sweetens it out in the middle, but then backs off to allow a bitter finish.

It doesn't have the chewy, full body of a great IPA, but does the job more than adequately.

In the end it is flavorful and smooth enough to be a good, enjoyably bitter IPA.
