2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 ounce bottle. Pours a hazy Amber color. Massive rocky beige head. Spicy toasted malt nose has notes of cinnamon and caramel. Slightly tart bready toasted malt flavor. Some spicy bitterness upfront. Seems unbalanced and in disarray. Not an atypical IPA.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle (5.25%) from Grocery Outlet. Medium amber in color. Lightly sweet nose with an earthy sort of hop character to it. Bready up front with a pretty strong grapefruit peel finish. A little bit of an earthy English hop character as well. Not a real hoppy IPA. Almost more of an esb or something.

(Bottle) Eh, it’s okay I guess, but nothing special. I wouldn’t recommend it. Oh well.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
i get more pine than citrus in this one, though both are present. i was a little alarmed at the low abv, but it turns out it doesn’t matter. the beer seems at least relatively fresh, and has quite a bit of flavor...pine, oak, quite malty too with some honey-esque sweetness. aroma tends a little malt heavy for an ipa imo, but it still works. a pleasant all around beer, well balanced."
