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

Aroma: Musty dank grassy aroma up front. Light bread crust-like malts in the background. Clean fermentation character.

Appearance: Hazy amber pour with an off-white moussy head. Appears still in the glass.

Flavor: Grassy bitterness up front. Background crusty bread-like malt persists. Balance is firmly bitter. Finish is clean and dry.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with medium carbonation. Slightly oily.

Overall impression: A slightly malt forward IPA. Many other good West Coast examples that would trump this one but enjoyable.

[Best served in a Shaker glass]

The pour was a hazy medium orange with a large (2-3 finger) off white rocky head that lasted throughout and produced some good streaky lacing.

The aroma was kind of mild of floral and pine hops, a straw malt and a mild earthy cobweb yeast with a hint of caramel and citrus (lemon peel and orange peel).

The taste was moderately bitter with an ever so slight trace of caramel at first, and then very quickly became extremely bitter with a huge dose of a harsh bitter citrus peel at the end. The flavor hung around longer that I would have liked being mostly of a harsh bitter citrus peel taste and not much else.

Mouthfeel was just above light in body with an extremely dry texture and an almost prickly carbonation.

Overall an IPA that was just a bit harsher that I would have liked, to much citrus peel taste for my liking...

22oz bottle into snifter. Reviewed from notes.

A: Pours a burnt golden color with a thin white head that faded into a bubbly, fuzzy, film.
S: I get some cat piss hops on the nose with notes of lemon.
T: Flavor is of dank hops, urinal cake, a touch of pine with stereotypical Rogue bready yeast in the finish and an herbal aftertaste.
M: Medium body, slightly greasy mouthfeel, even carbonation.
O: Not as bad as I describe but I’m still not a huge fan of this one’s hop profile.
