look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3
I like the look but it doesn't look like most IPAs. Looks more like a witbier. Pours a cloudy, milky gold color. It's pale-ish in color but mostly opaque due to the hazy look. The head is true IPA. Thick, fluffy, good retention, nice lacing.
I'm a bit torn on the smell. It's got some good and bad. The bad is that it smells like an American macro with a grainy, adjunct-filled, ricey aroma. The good is that it's got a citrusy, grassy smell that gives it the American IPA scent.
The taste follows the smell, a bit of American macro as well as some citrusy, grassiness. Each sip seems to get a bit worse.
The mouthfeel is very bitter. There's slight acidity, but it's got a grainy feel to it.
It's very average. Lots of potential, but reminds me too much of an overproduced American pilsner.
