3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a can dated 6/19/2015.
Aroma is rather malty with some moderate caramel, light toasted bread and cracker notes. Some grapefruit and pine resin.
Pours a reddish, copper-brown with a small, fairly thick, tan head that steadily recedes to the edges. Moderate lacing and medium small legs.
Flavor is somewhat sweet with some caramel, toasted bread and lighter cracker notes. Medium high bitterness. Medium grapefruit notes with lighter pine resin and hints of orange. Some light alcohol spice.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth.
Overall, a pretty disappointing IPA considering the hop pun in the name; it seems all the hops were used in the pun with none left for the beer. Way too malty without much hop flavor or aroma, just the bitterness.

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured kind of hazy, copper in color with a nice, foamy off white head; spotty lacing all over the glass. Aroma of hops, citrus fruit, caramel and malts. Taste is mostly hoppy, some citrus notes, some soapy notes and a nice malty backbone. Nice, solid beer. Enjoyable and very drinkable.
