look: 4.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance: Golden brew with small head, medium perceived effervescence, good retention and good lacing.

Aroma: Faint aroma of dried hops leaves with a touch of malt. Not much else, really.

Taste: Medium low in intensity. Notes of grass, mango, peach and toffee. A strong cooked vegetable off-flavor is also present; Reminiscent of adjunct ridden brews.

Palate: Medium bodied, weakly carbonated, nonexistent bitterness, flat, finishing sweet with a lingering faint caramel like flavor.

Overall: It's actually pretty hard to make an IPA this bad. Everything is completely off-style and on a personal level it just tastes like someone dry hopped a bud with some very stale hops.
