Appearance – This beer was a light orange in color and looked a bit wimpy. It did have a big, lingering white head though that made up for things.

Smell – The sharp citrus hops had a surprisingly big malt compliment. The malts actually were huge at the nose and were somewhat biscuity.

Taste – The biscuit actually came across OK at the taste, but the hops were lacking for a self-proclaimed “hoppy frog” and this flavor profile is muddled with grain of all things.

Mouthfeel – This IPA fell short of medium-bodied and really disappointed in the mouth, especially at the balance. It was clumsy and combative and had my taste buds reeling.

Drinkability – I managed to get this down so didn’t have to send it back, but it really was a disappointment coming from such a fine brewery. It has a bit of untapped potential but was so rough that it needs a lot of work.
