3.36/5 rDev -16.4%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.25
Appearance: Golden color with active bubbles rising, head is one inch and slowly recedes
Smell: Tropical fruit, pine, and bread. Fairly subtle for an IPA.
Taste: While there certainly is some hoppiness, there's also malt flavors too, namely bread, and this makes this taste more like an APA for me. There's nothing wrong with some malt balance in an IPA, but the hops here don't bring anything special to the table.
Mouthfeel: The beer drinks as one that is heavy considering the fairly thin mouthfeel. This is also a bit too carbonated in my opinion.
Overall: While I concede that this is one of the better widely available beers out there (I purchased this at a gas station), there are far better IPAs if one looks a little harder. The mouthfeel is probably the weakest part of this beer.
Serving type: bottle
