3.08/5  rDev -15.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Until recently I've only seen this on tap at a few bars around the twin cities. I picked up a six pack when I saw it was in bottles.

Pours a nice enough yellowish orange with a white inch cap. The bottle conditioning significantly clouded the beer as the bottle was drained. Moderate lacing.

Smell is ok for the style. It doesn't quite curl your nosehairs with citrus or pine but you can tell those aromas are present. Malty sweetness is here too.

Taste is rather meh. Not terrible by any stretch, but nothing to knock you off your couch either. The classic well-hopped IPA flavors (grapefruit, orange, lime, pine) are rather muted. I also get a little dose of wheat near the back end. The bottle lists wheat as an ingredient. The wheat kind of drags this down a bit for me. I'm not a fan of wheat beers really at all. Thankfully the tinge of wheat is a dim presence.

It feels a little too thin in the mouthfeel for my tastes.

I don't think I'd try this one again. It's a decent 'starter' IPA for those who are looking for something in the style but may not be ready to cannonball into the hop bombs like Furious or Two Hearted Ale.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Served from the tap

Appears a pale straw golden color, little white head. A soft floral hop aroma, not overly aggressive. Malt tastes like just base malt, neutral. Hop flavor is pleasant, again flowery and a bit of citrus. Lingering aftertaste, thin body.

Serving type: on-tap
