1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
I have never had an IPA I didn’t like.....until now. This is very bland. Very low IBU, low alochol, low body. Its like a light IPA, which would be fine, if they told me it was a light IPA.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Thanks to the kind soul that opened this at the recent Tampa tasting (Charlie, I think?). Pours clear gold with a slight white head. Nose is malt, lemon, citrus, and some caramel. Flavor is similar with syrupy malt and a fair amount of thick, sweet citrus. Medium in body and a lingering citrus burst in the finish.
