look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
A: A light orange color with a bright, egg-shell white head of compact froth. Retention is average for the style, with thin patches of foam hanging around on the sides of the glass.
S: Spicy, grassy, floral, and lightly fruity hop overtones combine well behind a backdrop of sweet cookie-like malt. The aroma isn't very bold-- it takes a more nuanced and subtle route.
T&M: Flavor is quite intriguing. Floral, grassy, and light tropical fruit flavors dance on my tongue in succession. Sweet bread-like flavor from the malt balances very nicely, and the finish is slightly dry, with flavors of lemon and grass. Body is medium and the feel is quite smooth and enjoyable.
D: Low ABV and solid flavor make this a highly drinkable IPA. I would almost tend to classify it in the English IPA camp because of the hop varietals and flavor profile, but that's probably a semantic issue. Kashmir IPA is a strong choice for anyone seeking a hop-forward, yet well balanced session IPA.

12 oz bottle into a pint stein.
A: Clear amber with about two fingers of foamy white head. Good lacing on the way down. Not quite the traditional IPA, but very nice appearance nonetheless.
S: Herbs, some citrus, and light floral hops. Not a traditional IPA smell, a lot lighter on hops. Very refreshing, almost "spring like."
T: Light hops present. This isn't an IPA. More citrus, like lemon and grapefruit. Again, I get the "spring and flowers theme." I like it, but it's NOT an IPA. At all. I didn't get the bitterness or astringency some others noted.
M: Light to medium body, not filling, but not watery either. Nothing like I'd think of when I think of an IPA.
I have no idea what they were going for here., It's not an IPA, but it's a good beer.
