A good IPA. A bit one dimensional in terms for flavor. Cry and bitter pine mostly not much citrus or malt.

12 oz. bottle poured into a wine glass. Pour is a hazed golden with a rich cap of off white foam. Aroma has an odd fruity/old hoppy character. That and the robust carbonation would suggest that there is a bit of a Brett thing going on here. I'm guessing that this isn't intentional but it works out ok.

Taste is again a tad fruit forward with subtle berry notes. Perky carbonation and a light bitterness follows, though again subdued for the style. Feel is smooth and again at odds with the style. All things expected given the Brett profile I'm picking up.

It pours a cold chill hazy, small head of foam, good enough lacing. Orange it mostly is.

I smell some grassy hops, bit of pine, kinda fruity overall. Bready malt.

Grassy then piney hop flavours up front. Some bread in the background. Nice enough taste.

Medium bodied. Good mouthfeel.

My one trip to Walmart in a few years is why I have this beer. Goodish but not something I'd buy again.
