3.36/5  rDev +6.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

LOOK: Pours a hazed orange color with a large soapy head with good retention. Lace is left down the glass. Unfiltered IPA.

SMELL: Grains, husk, cooked veggies and stewed hops. Not the best aroma. Grainy and course, perhaps even slightly home-brew like.

TASTE: Delicate pine and earthy bitterness rides a wave of malt sweetness with a slight caramel taste. Just a touch of nutty malts in the finish. Unrefined and pretty raw, this drinks like a standard home brew IPA recipe.

FEEL: Smooth and decently carbonated. Actually drinks like a smoothie. The feel on this beer is great and makes it much more drinkable then some of the enamel stripping IPA style beer on the market.

OVERALL: This is an East Coast IPA and definitely a decent stab at the style. Probably prefer the other IPA style beers from Evil Genius, but this was not a bad beer.

I had this on tap at the Philly Craft Beer festival and loved it. Good flavor, though lighter than most IPA's. No aftertaste from the sample I had.

I actually liked this beer quite a bit, but it does not really meet the style profile for an American IPA.

On tap at Ward 8
Nice head, clear golden color. Citrus and pine on the nose. Somewhat creamy mouthfeel. Nice IPA from a brewery I just heard of today.

Pours a clear deep gold producing 2+ fingers of frothy, white, somewhat lasting head that leaves clumpy & soapy webs of lace. Aroma is straightforward American IPA: caramel malt, citrus & floral hop notes. Taste is caramel malt sweetness forward but rapidly blending with citrus (lemon, grapefruit & tangerine), grass, pine & tea leafy hop notes before mid-sip & becoming predominantly bitter with an underlying sweetness by the finish but becoming intensely pine resinous & herbal bitter in the aftertaste. Mouthfeel is light-medium bodied with moderate carbonation, creamy, smooth & slick across the tongue with little spice or prickle.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Look: Pale orange color, pours with little head.

Smell: Hops, with a touch of lemon.

Taste: Nothing but straight bitter hops. That ruins it for me. The flavor is bland and bitter.

Feel: Light to medium bodied.

Overall: Probably wouldn't buy this again. It's ok...
