3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pint at Gentle Ben’s as Ben’s IPA. Pours stark red with a white head and white lacing. Aroma is not as hoppy as I want from the style. There is some grapefruit along with basement, cherry and bread. Palate is enjoyable. It’s a decent tasting beer but not a great IPA. The finish is dry from the hops but they never come into their own. Notes of sweet fruits give it balance. Middle of the road brew.

One of the more flavorful beers I had at GB’s. Pleasantly hopped and bittered, but just not enough oomph going on for it to be super interesting. Very light light summery IPA.

[Tap] Pours a dark shade of gold with a nice cap of white head. Heavy and syrupy aroma includes pine, grapefruit and simple syrup. A nice hoppy flavor is a bit dank and astringent, and worked very well in here. Caramel and sweet grainy backbone. Hints of sour fruit and kiwi, oddly enough, as well. Sharp bitter finish. Nice balance and good mouthfeel. A pretty nice beer.
