Appearance is a cloudy straw with a finger of head that dissipated quickly leaving a film of foam across the top of the beer. The nose is interesting - citrus and pine for sure. Not much maltiness in the body - this offering is light (but not necessarily what I would call crisp). The hops on the finish leave a pleasant tingling on the tongue.

Another attempt at brewing a sessionable IPA. Certainly a respectable effort, but that's about it.

Pours a pale deep golden color. Aroma of lightly toasted malt and lemony citrus. In the taste, lemony citrus and a firm semi-toasty malt profile. Dark bread and lemon. Light and a bit earthy. Light bodied feel but not watery. Overall, this is a decent session brew, but not a standout within that genre.

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.

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.

A-Pours a slightly cloudy yellow/orange color. Soft head dies off to nearly nothing. Very mild lacing.

S-Hop #366 displays and interesting nose. The experimental hop gives off an aroma of lemon zest and musty herb. Orange and grapefruit is also prevalent but I get more floral, zest, herb than fruit.

T-The flavor is different than the nose. Its less herby and more concentrated on the citrus element found in the nose. Lemon, orange, grapefruit and some stemmy florals. Sweet cracker malt. Not as intense as the nose.

M-Light and sessionable. Light, lingering bitterness.

O/D-I actually enjoyed this beer's uniqueness. I thought the difference between the nose and flavor was interesting. Could stand to bulk up on the flavor intensity but it is a session IPA. #366 has some potential.
