look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Golden amber in color. White head that soon dissipates. Slightly opaque.

Smell: Sweet, floral and hoppy.

Taste: Bitter, hoppy, a little malty to finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied. Crisp, medium carbonation.

Overall: Serviceable American IPA. Very sessionable. Would drink again, but doesn't do much to separate itself from the pack.

Pours a very clear, straw color, modest head. The aroma is skunky hops, not overpowering, but solid. Unfortunately, the taste doesn't quite hold up. It's good, but a step below the smell. Crisp, dry, some subtle citrus hops... Mouthfeel is great in most ways, but it seems undercarbonated to me. All in all, a solid IPA that you'd be happy to drink any old time. Impressive for a beer that is so mass produced and widely available.
