2.81/5  rDev -18.6%
look: 1 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 1 | overall: 1.75

Pours a nearly lifeless cloudy orange color with just a few bubbles rising lazily to the surface. Looks pretty limp and sad.

The aroma is quite good, fresh, grapefruit like hop notes. Tropical fruit is fairly strong on this one.

The taste is bitter and hoppy with plenty of pith and rind action really grinding away. Malt sweetness makes it kind of like a hop smoothie. Sugary sweetness and American hops do a nice job with IPA flavor.

In the feel, however, the carbonation is just too mild. Its not flat but not entirely far from it. Wishing for more body.

Overall, I am not quite sure I've reviewed a beer such a way. It is OK, as far as smell and taste, but like a few other beers on the market, the feel is just way too thin. With a firmer carbonated body this beer could be solid.

Glowing gold, puffy white. Green, pineapple, slightly boozy in the end. Aggressive citrus rind, bitter.

look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Pours a pint full of foam. After it eventually settles (and I can finish pouring and drink the darned thing) there remains a little scattered lacing and a thick film resting atop the liquid. As transparent as a filthy windshield, the amber colored looked rather inviting.
Smell is a nice blend of hops and malt with a hint of pine but that's it.
Taste is more DIPA than IPA. Well married malt and hops with a strong alcohol presence.
Medium bodied with less effervescence than expected. Maybe it all left in the copious foaming 20 minutes previous. Warming like a DIPA as well. Doubt I'll look for this again but if someone offers me one, ok.

A - Pretty, slightly murky orange/gold, nice fat off white head, leaves slowly to disk with lots of cling lace.

S - Ok, this is where things get a little different. Not much malt in smell and there is some pretty prevalent hop action, but there is also a sour, tangy element to it.

T - Nice malt, good hops, but that lemon tart element is there. Doesn't remind me of a IPA in that sense.

M - Medium body, malt upfront, bitter back, then that tart lemon lingers.

D - Interesting beer to try. Not what I expected, but not bad, either.

Pours a fluffy two fingers of head on a cloudy dark straw colored body.
The aroma has lots of danky lemon, barnish smell, but nice.
The taste has bold lemon bitterness but lots of malt to hold it up. I like it.
The texture is thicker with moderate carbonation.
Enjoy it.
