2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Crisp, very slightly hazy blonde golden coloured body with a thin, half centimetre tall pure white head. Aroma of bright hops, citrus, light malt, alcohol and a bit of grass and herbs. Light to Medium-bodied; Strong grassy, herbal and perfumey hop character up front with a strong malt backbone and an assertive spicey yeast note, for the style, especially. Aftertaste shows mostly herbal and grassy hops with a pungent malt backbone and some stronger alcohol flavours as well. Overall, a nice and pungent IPA with not too much hop bitterness, but more of a grassy and kick from the citrus than anything else. Decent to try, but not great and not in the same boat as the best IPAs from the West Coast. This is pretty much what I was expecting (a middle of the road IPA), until I saw these scores, but this beer doesn’t warrant this type of rating. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Whip-In in Austin, Texas on 05-May-2014 for US$1,79 sampled at home in Washington on 11-August-2014.

3.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fairly cloudy pour with small but long lasting head. Fantastic fruity aroma. Complex hop flavor that then quickly dissipates leaving little to no aftertaste.
