3.28/5  rDev -1.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours a light amber color with a thin white head that leaves little lacing.

S: Smells of slight sweets and very little hops. I was definitly expecting more of a hoppy odor, especially for an IPA.

T: Flavor starts off with a slight sweet taste then moves towards a dull hoppy finish. Didnt deliver a strong hop flavor that I come to expect from IPAs. Also the sweetness at the beginning didnt really balance out the lack of hops.

M: Decent amount of chew to the beer considering its an IPA.

D: Very easy drinking beer. Not too much flavor though, so I wouldnt want to drink another.

Overall the beer was ok. Nothing really distinguishes this IPA above just an average IPA. Saranac definitly has better beers out there.
