Strong hop character. Good aroma. This bottle foamed a lot, but it may have been stored wrong.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A nice relatively easy-drinking IPA, pours a very attractive pale ruby appearance with good lacing, could pass for an amber ale based on looks. Smell is fresh and features both the piney hop and malty notes. The flavor itself is a lighter-bodied west coast hoppiness with a thin malty background. Hint of caramel present. Toasty and tasty, although it seems there is some off-flavors in the finish. Bitterness is a bit sticky. Still pretty good overall, and it's lighter weight makes it more sessionable. Not sure if I'd drink this again, but I'm glad I tried it. Depot Street brewing is on the right track.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Way over carbonated almost a gusher. Flavor is off grain malt light hop. Not impressed. Hopper away from this one.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Seems like more of a pale than an IPA. The hops don’t seem to fresh. The finish is dull and everything tastes muted.
