Not great, not bad. You'll definitely get a big hop taste

Overall, decent but I wouldn't look for this IPA in particular

The inside of this place is dark as a coal mine. Seemed orange and yellow. Dry hopping was insubstantial. Minimal notes of pine and citrus.

Plenty of c hop bitterness. Grapefruit. Lots of alcohol noticeable in the mouthfeel. Malt doesn't come off too much of any one dimension. One of those substantial bitterness kind of vibes.

poured from a 16oz can into a pint glass. canned on 11/20/15

L- pale orange in color, slightly hazy with a white head that quickly settles into a thin lacing. would like to see more carbonation but it's not terrible.

S- pine, lemon hops. hints of sweet malted barley near the end. nothing crazy. a good smelling IPA.

T- lemon peel, more pine. a bit more citrus than pine but not much tropical fruit. a healthy portion of malt makes it fairly well balanced for a west-coast style IPA. almost like a hybird of traditional old school IPAs and the newer west-coast styles. Nice and drinkable.

F- thick mouthfeel with a slightly dry finish.

O- A good IPA that I would have again. Doesn't do enough to make it a go-to beer but I could see myself loving this beer if I were living in NV.

Pours a nice light amber color. Has a very light watery aroma of citrus and pine hops. Flavor is citrus and pine hops. Has a light clean hoppy finish. A very nice ipa

Afraid that Pour24 inside New York, New York was working of an old keg. Either way the malt had clearly taken over... Hoping to try again at a later time to make sure....
