I'm fairly new at the whole rating of beers but I know what I like and I don't like this. It tasted like I was drinking a banana. Maybe that's what they were going for but not their best effort. I've had their other beer and am usually not disappointed

Bottle. Pours an orange amber color with a fluffy white head that laces as it settles. The aroma is really fruity, tropical type fruit at that. Lots of pineapple and mango type notes. Sweet malty smell as well, honestly reminds me of Fruity Pebbles. Medium mouthfeel. The taste isn't quite as good as the nose. Not really all that hoppy and not malty enough for an IPA in my opinion. Ends pretty cleanly with only a slight lingering bitter taste. No real alcohol flavors.

2.75/5  rDev -22.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Poured into small pint like glass.

Pours a finger of off-white head. Decent retention with some lace. Color is hazed brown hued orange.

Aroma: Very sweet and fruity with notes of orange peel and mangoes. Not much of a hop profile in the nose, but not malty either.

Taste: A little bit of a earthy hop profile but very fruity overall. Some pineapple and mango with a bit of oranges. Some bready malts. Not very hoppy for an ipa, however.

Mouthfeel: Crisp and creamy. Medium bodied with a medium amount of carbonation. Ends a bit sticky.

Overall, not a very good ipa. Just not hoppy enough for me. I did enjoy the fruit profile, but it needed hops to back it up. Not too drinkable for me.

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

Pours a hazy amber with two fingers of thick, foamy head. Great retention. Nice citrus notes in the nose; orange peel and lemon. Taste is very citrusy with notes of orange peel, grapefruit, and lemon. Extremely light, bready malt character. Faint medicine aftertaste. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, lightly carbonated, but smooth.

Overall, this is too citrusy. The lemon and orange peel are more on the wheat beer side. The malt content is also rather weak. For a Natty Greene's beer, it's decent, but it's nothing to get excited about.

[Suggested Glassware: Tulip Glass]

The pour was a clear golden straw yellow with a slight orange hue and an average white bubbly head that reduced down to a small collar with fair spotty lacing.

The aroma was lightly sweet with a light grain malt, mild floral hops and a doughy yeast with notes of tropical fruit (pineapple and mango), and caramel.

The taste was lightly sweet with a hint of caramel and fruit from the start with a mild hoppy bitterness creeping in towards the finish. The flavor lasted a good long while proceeding the swallow with a slightly hoppy fruitiness left to linger on the taste buds.

Mouthfeel was just past light in body and somewhat watery in texture with a mild to medium carbonation.

Overall I thought this was a bit on the mild side for an IPA, it most definitely could have been a tad heavier on the hops. With that being said it still was extremely tasty and did possess a very smooth drinkability...

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Serving type- 12 ounce bottle poured into a pint glass.

A- Pours a dark orange with minimal carbonation after the pour. It pours a small white lace that keeps a presence until the end.

S- Not anything over powering in the smell category. However I do notes of hops and citurs:orange and pine.

T- The taste is a little muted for an IPA. Seems to be a little weak therefore the hoppy bitterness is not very prevelant.

I read about this beer on BA and was hoping to get a chance to try it outside of the brewery since I rarely get out of the house these days. Luckily I found it bottled at the local Total Wine and picked up a bottle. Even though I didn't find this to appealing it was about what I thought it would be. A decent beer but nothing with strength or bitterness that I associate with IPA's, especially from the west coast. I will probably not get this again but I am glad that I gave it a shot. I will certainly keep trying more offerings from Natty Greene's and I am sure that I will find some good things from them.

3.49/5  rDev -2%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Served in a glace chalice.

Hazy brown, orange color. White head, about a finger’s worth . Piney and grassy hops on the nose and some sugary biscuit with some earthiness in there as well. The aroma is pretty decent for an IPA. Grassy and piney hops taste-wise with fairly low bitterness. As the beer warms, more tropical notes begin to come out. The hop profile tastes really similar to a Stone RuinTen, although tamed down about 40.7%. The malt balances out the hops pretty well. It isn’t a hop-bomb, and I generally like my IPAs a little more crisp, however it’s a nicely crafted IPA.
