3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A: The pour is a lightly hazed golden-amber color color with a tall off-white head.
S: Sort of a bland aroma. There is some grass, a light floral note, and minimal citrus peel notes. There is a fair amount of sweet malt and bread to it, and just a very light grapefruit. Strangely, a touch of celery.
T: Light pine is there first with the strange celery flavor following. A bit of citrus peel along with sweet malt and bread. A little bit of additional sweetness in the form of toffee. There is just a mild bitterness.
M: Medium in body body and carbonation.
O: Just a mediocre IPA. Not very good hop character to it.
