2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draught glass at the joint- hearty white lacing throughout the serving, one finger white head that lasted for quite awhile, pale orange turbid color. Aroma of light pine and some citrus- decent. Hits the mouth with a light medium body, malt is very weak and only has a touch of caramel, baby hop wave in the middle, finish is bitter, not acidic. Old perhaps?

1.1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
I had this beer on-site at Lovejoy’s Taproom, and I thought it to be a very poor beer. It poured a hazy, dull, dark yellow with virtually no head. This keyed my expectations, as I’ve had a number of very potent IPAs that were preceded by a rather minimal head, although I was to be disappointed by this beer. This beer had no aroma that I could detect. Taste was very malty with a weird bitterness that didn’t seem to fit to me. Mouthfeel was extremely thin and this beer was very FLAT. This flatness was so pervasive, it was really the only thing I could take away from this beer. This was the worst IPA I’ve had in recent memory, and I did not finish it.
