3.27/5  rDev +0.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: dark orange in color with a 1" head that lingered around a while.

Smell: very little aroma as some citrus barely came through.

Taste: caramel, grapefruit, hints of pine, and a soft earthy bitterness.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer. Lightly crisp throughout with a bit of dryness arriving late.

Overall: a very mellow IPA that was easy to drink but did not satisfy that IPA urge,

Poured hazy and unfiltered from tap into a standard pint glass at a Mexican restaurant. Deep copper color, very little head. Citrus forward aroma, taste is a little confused. Sort of malty, sort of hoppy. Not hard to drink just nothing really noteworthy.

22oz bottle poured into a large mug. "Still Great Until" 09.05.2015. Flown home from Phoenix yesterday.

Pours slightly hazy amber with a big head and thick lacing. Lots of carbonation. Smell is not bad, but a little boring. Fairly muted, slightly piney. Not much else.

Taste is soapy pine. Can't think of a better description, and can't detect much else.

Mouthfeel is dry and coarse. Overall, not a great beer. Not horrible. But not that good.
