3.38/5 rDev -18%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3
Poured from a 12oz can into a sam adams pint glass:
Apparence: poured a medium amber color (i'd guess something like 12.5-13.5 SRM), crystal clear, looks very nice, but maybe not how a IPA SHOULD look..
Aroma: piny, earthy, with some malt sweetness coming out, also slightly "green" tasting. Smells like an average IPA, but thats not a bad thing.
Flavor: flavor is almost even between malt sweetness and the btterness of the hops, i get a sweet caramel flavor with some crystalized sugar (crystal malt) hops are definetly present, and taste nice, i just wish the sweet malt wasnt there fighting with the hops as much, i would prefer a more hop domonent flavor, but again, this is average for most IPAs ive tried.
Mouthfeel: carbonation is nice, the after-mouth-feel is kind of cloying, it completely saturated my tongue, almost like a DIPA. Bitterness is, well, bitter, slight flavor of pine and "earth" come to mind. Again, sweetness is on the high side, which tends to stick around for a while on the tongue and battles the hops, which some people might like.
Overall: this one tasted pretty average to me, it's a good "go-to" but something i would crave or drool over, eh, I dont know. It takes a lot for me to say a beer is above average, so by no means is this a bad beer, just nothing to really take note of. Pretty average down the line.
Serving type: can
