Pours a dirty orange-brown, cloudy to opaque. Head is yellow-tinged white, large bubbles, bit thin. Looks alright.

Smells very fruity-hoppy. New worldly, with passionfruit and a touch of mango. Citric edge as well though and getting more acidic as it warms up. Not much else to it besides hops.

Taste is also all hops, all over that. Citric, piney with resinous hop oils coming through on the back of that. Bit of cake better malt, but it's just one-note American citric & piney hop, really. I like, but it needs to show me more.

Feels a little hot at the back. Otherwise fluid but yeah, boozey.

Ticks all the right boxes for the style but it doesn't take it anywhere beyond the "Fuck yeah 'Murica IPA' zone.

Since my rating is so statistically far from the average, I felt like a review was warranted.
L: Definitely the best thing this beer has going on for it, or at least in my experience. Pours a very clean amber tone with a soapy head that retains a lot of foam and leaves a sticky lacing.
S: Malty, with some earthy herbal notes that are sort of piney. Really missing any hint of citrus or tropical notes you might get from a simcoe/citra hop bill.
T: Sweet up front, some pine and floral taste elements that get overwhelmed quickly by burnt sugars.
F: Way too much happening here and I don't mean that in a good way. I get that it's a IIIPA, but come on! Sweet, bitter, boozy, and all of these things seem to be competing to stand out the most.
O: Although this isn't a flattering review per se, this is still an above-average beer at the end of the day. I just wished it was a bit more harmonious.
