Decent IPA. Took a few pulls from the bottle until it was gone. Served at the mix and mingle things hotels throw. Didn't pay for it, so I don't feel like I wasted any cash. It's pretty well balanced between grassy and citrus hops and a caramel backbone. I ain't spending any money on it, though.

Clear yellow-orange pour, modest head.
Aromas of lemon, mineral, and grass.
Up-front hops, feel like they're sitting on the middle front of my tongue and refusing to move. Overly grassy-bitter aftertaste. Pretty one-dimensional, but not terrible.

12oz can poured into Duvel tulip. 28SEP18 printed on bottom of can. Hopefully a born on date, because if it's the best by, then this one is 2 months overdue. Got it from grocery store as part of a $10 sixer mixer.

Appearance - Pours medium-sized off-white orange tinted pancake batter head with good lacing and retention. Clear light-medium gold body. Slight to moderate carbonation. 3.75

Smell - Grassy musk and faint citrus. Kind of mild and boring. 3

Taste - Sharp grassy bitterness up front with some honey underneath. Grassy bitterness lasts well into the very long aftertaste. Cardboard. Alcohol isn't hidden. 3.5

Mouthfeel - Light to medium bodied. Creamy head. Sharp body. 3

Overall - A little too light bodied and thin for the amount of sharp bitterness it provides, giving it more of a chemical quality than that of a beer. Not particularly enjoyable, but not altogether bad. Wouldn't turn one down, but wouldn't pick one up if there were options. 2.25
