Medium amber with a thin foam cap in a shaker (from the bottle) at Scatch Kitchen in Salem, MA... toasty with hearty malts right alongside mild citrus... medium-light body with some tingle if carbonation but s generally smooth feel... bitterness and sugars both present in moderation... very enjoyable...

Described on label as a highly hopped English style IPA that combines the hop flavor with a sweet malty finish.

It poured a hazy golden color with a slight head. Not bad.
The smell was very uninteresting. It was indecipherable.
Taste was bland. Not very hoppy at all, not much malt on the finish.
Feel was pretty good. A little thicker than expected, but felt wholesome.

Overall: Didn't live up to the 92 score by the Bros OR the 87 overall. Probably like a 75 in actuality. Very much so a "blah" IPA that you'd drink if there weren't many other options, but wouldn't go out of your way to get again.
