Appearance: clear amber with a semi-durable near white head.

flavor and aroma: Moderately complex aroma and flavor. Very floral, especially the aroma. Lacks balance. Sweet.

Feel: Near medium body.

O: too sweet and under-hopped; not worth seeking out

Definitely an easy drinking ipa but not a mind blowing ipa. A little thick and syrupy going down. Had a decent taste on the palate but nothing to brag about. Decent smell but no overly hoppy. Of course the higher the ibu the better for me. Taste is good . Not off putting but not great. This is a great ipa for someone who is just getting into IPA's. I LOVE IPAs, so it scores a little low for me but can definitely be a great starter for the new ipa enthusiasts.

Busted Sandal Brewing Co. "Slippery Rock IPA"
on tap @ Waxy O'Connor's, San Antonio, TX
$6.50 / pint

Notes: Clear light copper-orange body beneath a medium off-white head. Head retention and lacing are limited (possibly due to a dirty glass). Aroma of sweetish, gently caramelish, and grainy malt backed by floral, gently citrusy, and leafy hops. The flavor follows suit and although it's got some strength to it it seems lacking hops as an IPA... maybe more of a strong American ale? Medium body / medium carbonation. Balanced but leaning towards maltiness. Drying finish. Middle of the road.

On tap at Yard House, San Antonio, TX. Pours amber with fluffy white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of citrusy hops, oranges and caramel malt. Body is medium and crisp. Herbal hops, caramel malt, grain and red fruit fill the mouth. Finish is long and hoppy. Good brew.
