1.66/5  rDev -52.6%
look: 2.75 | smell: 1.75 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 1.75 | overall: 1.5

On-tap at the Barley Oak, reviewed from notes.

Appearance: Clear gold with one finger of white head, not much lacing on the sides of a standard pint glass.

Smell: A bit of citrus, maybe a hint of grass and earth. Yet this is labeled an American IPA?

Taste: LIke the smell, not much at all. Carbonation is my best explanation maybe a hint of citrus, but I don't know..

Mouthfeel: Very light-bodied and more carbonated than I'd like. If it were really really hot maybe this would be refreshing.

Overall: A waste of $6, bartender told me it was an IPA from Brooklyn so I figured, why not? Don't try this beer.

1.8/5  rDev -48.6%
look: 3.25 | smell: 2 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 1.25 | overall: 2

Appearance: sunny yellow, slight haze, mostly transparent though, with a near bone white head. Looks decent.

Aroma: lightly lemony, faint citrus, and the buck stops there.

Taste: light lemon/citrus, nearly nonexistent.

Mouthfeel: I know the ABV is low, but this is Michelob Ultra watery.

Overall: sad, sad beer. I had a Green Flash Surfs up before this and thought it was sort of average...I appreciate it a lot more after this.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

From a 330ml bottle.
L: Clear, golden colour with plentiful carbonation. A 1cm, sudsy head reduces slowly to a cap leaving spotty lacing.
S: Pale malt and light citrus. Quite subdued.
T: The hops are pretty harsh for what is supposed to be an easy-drinker. Pine and metallic flavours. Has a short, bitter finish.
F: Pretty thin mouthfeel. Not great.
O: Disappointed with this hoppy yet low ABV beer. Thin and harsh. The malt base is missing and the hops are arid.
