Poured into a pint glass. Honey-colored, a little light for an IPA. Head is pretty modest at a half inch, despite a vigorous pour. Leaves some thin lacing.

Smells like melting plastic. No hoppiness, a hint of maltiness. Not good.

As far as flavor, this beer doesn't taste bad, but it doesn't taste like an IPA either. Closer to a pale ale, with a toasty maltiness that overrides the weak hoppiness. The plastic from the aroma is nearly gone in flavor but there's a little bit there.

Mouthfeel is fairly good, with appropriate carbonation and body. A little high on alcohol and there's not enough flavor to justify it. Not impressed at all.

Fat Frog. The IPA pours a lighter amber color that was a little lighter then typical IPA’s. The lacing was good and so was the head. Better then the others I tried at the Frog.

The smell is light and has more of a pale ale essence, even if it wasn’t in California. The taste is very sub par as well. Some hoppy flavor is balanced with the basic malt and toffee taste. Centennial if I missed my mark. There is a light floral finish as well.

The body is light and a bit watery. Overall this is a rather basic IPA. Nothing bad but rather basic.
