look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Hazy orange with a soapy off-white head. Like an average American IPA looks.

Aroma: Sweet candy-like hops. Caramel malt. Smells like a good balance.

Taste: There's some good malt flavor in there but it's overpowered by a sweet hop/wet dog flavor. That makes it sound much worse than it is but it's the only way I can think to describe it. The malts and hops are very well balanced. There is some decent bitterness in there as well.

Mouthfeel: Nice and drinkable. Lighter side of medium bodied.

Final Thoughts: This one left something to be desired. It's lacking some bitterness and good hop flavor. Instead of pine or citrus you just have sweet hops with nothing particularly pleasing about them. Basically this is a good beer but a not so good IPA.

look: 3 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Poured from a bottle into a Victory tulip

A- pours a very cloudy shade of orange with a one finger white head. Boring

S- aroma is essentially nonexistent. Getting a slight bit of pine, but that's it

T- some citrus, some pine, and a whole lot of nothing in between. Finish is abrasively bitter

M- this is actually pretty syrupy...which is weird for a 6% IPA. Not a fan

O- no thanks....very bland. Tons of better options out there

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Golden brown with 1-2 finger head.

Aroma: I noticed the floral hops right away as well as the citrus/grapefruit smells.

Taste: Taste is similar to the smell in that you can pick up on the floral hops. The taste is very light and then you can taste the bittering hops toward the end.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium mouthfeel--not thick at all.

Drinkability: Highly drinkable IPA.

Overall: Overall, good IPA. Could be improved with more citrus tastes.
