This was a toasty ipa. Like a blue point toasted lager mixed with an ipa. Not a combination I prefer. It doesn't really hit either style quite the way you would want it too. Seems disjointed and confusing.

Would Drink Again: No
Would Purchase Again: No

4oz taster pour into CMBC pint glass at their facility.

A: Pours out a dark orange almost amber like color. Half finger of head. Bright white. Nice carbo. Some spotty lacing bits on the glass during the sip.

S: I want more hops. I get some fruit and light pine. Bready malt. Smells balanced.

T: Really mild. Easy coast for sure. Some hop bitterness right away, but basically plain. Lots of balancing malts in the middle. Almost to much. It's a basic IPA for entry level drinkers.

M: light to medium.

Amber color. Decent beer but not hoppy enough for me in regards to an IPA. More like an APA
