Bottle shared by Todd last night.
Mostly clear medium gold color, green onion with bready caramel aroma and flavor. Decent IPA if not a bit pedestrian.

This is the wrong time of the year for me to drink ipa’s but what the heck. Good amount of hops on the nose and on the tongue. But not overly hippy which is good for me.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle (12 oz). Clear golden/amber with a small white head and little lacing. Aroma is floral with perfume, malt, light alcohol and resinous notes. Taste is slightly sweet with floral notes, perfume, resinous notes, light bitterness and warming from the alcohol. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Slightly sticky mouthfeel. Average IPA. It’s supposed to be really fresh, but it’s drinking like an old IPA. A tad boring and not that drinkable for the style. Decent.
