2.53/5  rDev -23.8%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Serving Type: On-tap at Breakwater Brewery poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: Reddish-amber in color with a solid head and great lacing. Very good start.

Smell: Disappointing after the beautiful appearance as the aroma is rather weak. Citra hops stand out somwhat but I do not detect any malt.

Taste: Unfortunately, the scores continue to go down for this one. I found the taste to be rather watered down with a lack of malt flavor. It has some bitter from the minimal hops but it is not a smooth bitter. It's drinkable for sure, but not very enjoyable.

Mouthfeel: The body was far too light but it did have very good carbonation.

Overall: I was disappointed by this brew but would like to try some of Belching Beavers' other offerings. As they advertise this one as an India Red Ale, I was especially disappointed by the lack of hop flavor.

From tap. Pretty malty with subtle hoppyness.
