look: 4 | smell: 2 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Appearance: Slightly hazy gold color with one finger of head that fades slowly with a curtain of lace.

Aroma: Toasted malt, grassy hops and wet hay and a little cabbage.

Taste: Bitter right from the get go, with a real earthy, dirty bitterness over a mild malt backbone. The bitterness isn't harsh, and there are some cooked veggie notes towards the back end. The finish is lingering with mild bitterness and the body is on the thin side of medium.

The Rest: Not too crazy about the aroma, but a nice, subdued IPA was hiding under that somewhat funky smell.
