look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Served on tap at the brewpub into a nonic glass

A- Poured a clear copper color with a one finger frothy head that left some minimal lace

S- Big sweet grapefruit and sweet malty aroma

T- Sweet cascade grapefruit hop profile, floral fragrant notes, and sweet malts. Most of the flavor comes in on the finish. A lot of the beer is kind of watery and lacking in flavor. More flavor on the finish and aftertaste than up front

M- medium to lighter bodied, prickly carbonation, finishes a little watery

O- Overall this beer has some good hop flavor, but is a very average IPA and a little watery.

I had this on-tap at the Big River in downtown Nashville.

Served in a shaker pint.

A: Poured a gold color, with a slight reddish hue. Sticky, Spider-Man-esque lacing, and a 1/2 finger head.

S: I got a fresh, clean cotton scent, with a decent hop-citrus component as well. This was all faint, yet still present.

T: This tasted more like an amber to me than an IPA, with a full citrus bill and hop profile, but still more floral overall.

M: Mildly sweet, with a tinge of booze, and like I stated before, substantial lacing.

O: Good, but nothing to write home about.
