Flying Fish Brewing Company - HopFish IPA

Look - Almost clear copper amber with a good sized soapy head. Some chunky lacing.

Smell - Deep caramel malts with slight piney resin hops over it. Just OK.

Taste - Malty English tangy with some bitter resin hops. Generally kinda taste compared to the other aspects, but not amazing.

Mouthfeel - Slight bitter dry like most EIPAs. Not boozy. Fairly drinkable but generally blah.

Overall - Good, but certainly not great. I have never been a big fan of EIPAs and this is not one of the few that I have had that is an exception to the rule. Would not get again, generally would not recommend.

They forgot the taste in this one!! Opens and pours to almost perfect hue, nice sudsy head. Bring to your nose, smells decent, not great, maybe hope for some substance as it goes down your pallet.

But...

Then...

You...

Actually...

Drink it...

And it dies a quick death on the taste buds. For a split second it tastes like it has potential. Then
NOTHING!! No taste, no citrus, no floral, nothing.

Oh well, it was worth the try. I guess. No wait, no it wasn't. :(
