12oz bottle, no clear bottling date, at bd Mongolian BBQ in Coventry (Cleveland OH). Poured into an unlabeled pint glass. This is the third time I've had this beer, but the first time I'm feeling like reviewing this.

Review #261.

Pours a nice copper-orange body with a 2cm white head, decent retention, nothing special. Looks like a typical IPA to me, rings of lacing stick around on the glass as I drink this beer down.

Smells quite hoppy- citrus and pine primarily. Some orange and lemon up front with pine at the end, mixed in with a fairly decent but not substantial bready malt backbone.

Flavour is actually fairly mild- mostly citrus and biscuits, finishing off with hints of pine. Fairly hoppy, but overall quite balanced and not skewed in any one department.

Smooth, drinkable, medium bodied with good carbonation. Not particularly resinous but leaves a fairly nice dry feel on the palate. No hint of alcohol.

Fairly good regional IPA, it gets a lot of love on here and I kind of get it.. but its certainly not among the best I've had. It's not mindblowingly good, while its a very well constructed, balanced IPA with good flavours. But well, maybe I just need to get into that proper Cleveland mindset.
