disappointing beer from Thomas Creek. Didn't taste like an IPA at all.

Very disapointing as an American IPA. More so when i spent top dollar for this "blah" bottle at a premier resturant in up-town Charlotte....and i lived in Greenville for a long time...

Poured out of a bottle into a pint glass, 11/6/14. No bottled on date. Pours a golden color. Medium carbonation. Tastes fine enough, but wouldn't call it an IPA. Somehow bitter without being hoppy. No hop flavor or hop in the nose. Malt character comes through more in the nose and taste than hops. Wouldn't seek it out if I was in the mood for an IPA. Could work better as a Brown or a Red, but just isn't those colors.

For the Trekkies out there: it's like Synthale, like a computer tried to make an approximation of an IPA but can't quite get it right (SynthIPA?)
