Very weak IPA with little to almost no taste, practically water. Beers like this make me wonder if some breweries even understand how to brew a true IPA. I would rather drink a budweiser than this beer ever again.

3.15/5  rDev -0.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

On-tap poured into pint glass on opening day of tap-room.

Appearance: Dark black with minimal head and minimal lacing.

Smell: Floral/earthy hops up front with dark malts following, pleasant scent profile.

Taste: Hops and dark malt up front with watery finish.

Mouthfeel: Some carbonation up front fading into a watery mouthfeel finish.

Overall: Quite promising up front, but a somewhat weak finish. This beer has the potential to be great. I give it an average rating, but I love the idea.
