3.21/5  rDev -5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

Poured from a 12 oz can (01/18/17) ,into a Cigar City spiegelau IPA glass.

Thick creamy white colored head that stands 2 fingers tall with heavy lacing ,and patching.Deep hazy copper colored body,with medium clarity and medium carbonation.

On the nose I get pine,citrus,and sweet bread malt notes after the pour.Once the pour dies down it takes on much more of a malty scent,almost to the point that it smells like malt liquor.After about 5-10 minutes of drinking it takes on more of a dank aroma,and not in a good way.It almost starts to smell like rotten cheese,or smelly feet.

On the palate I get heavy malt up front,with a strong dose of bitter hoppy pine on the back end.The hops are pretty intense,but they almost taste generic,or manufactured,if that makes any sense.And again the taste starts to take a dank form a couple minutes into the beer,almost like rotten cheese.Also getting some apple flavors,but they are a little off putting.Lots of hoppy floral notes,but not enough to save it.

The mouth feel is medium heavy,with a sticky texture.Good amount of carbonation on the tongue,and a dry finish.

I'm usually pretty generous with my ratings,and even an overall 3 may be a little too generous.I really can't recommend this beer,and definitely will not buy it again.I really wish I didn't buy a 6 pack before trying 1 first.

Simply not good. Murky golden brown with little head or lacing. Smell is muted, a bit pine sol. No brightness or freshness. Flavor is also pine sol, alcohol and some orange. Flabby finish with a sort of medium slick feel. No bueno.

Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass. The appearance is a slightly cloudy amber color with a small white head. The aroma is sweet malt and hops. The taste matches the nose.

A new one for me. Not anything special but certainly a drinkable IPA. I would not hesitate to have it again. I was surprised at the low ratings it got. Cheers !

Lots of hop bitterness, not a lot of flavor. Some onion notes.

3.44/5  rDev +1.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Look: Darker than expected, a rich amber color. Decent off white head, but the lacing was only decent and it faded quickly. Smell: Smelled slightly sweet but with a strong piney hop aroma. Not as much citrus as advertised. Taste: Malt forward, pine hops that I was getting on the nose come through here but they simply don't mesh well with the sweet, bready malt. This beer is trying to be citrusy, malty and piney all at one time but it falls short of being complex and ends up rather confusing. Feel: This aspect I liked, very nice medium carbonation, smooth and full bodied. The heaviness of the malts in this beer I think helps this. Overall: Not a great beer. Tries to do too much. Reminds me of 16 Mile Inlet IPA. Not great. I prefer these "East Coast IPA's" when they are more balanced than this.

I am surprised this isn't rated higher. Similar to resin imo.
