bottle. Slight funk aroma & stale pellet hops. Lightweight sweet. Thin body that lacks enough bitterness. Oh, & the slight funk is breathed before each breath as it finishes.

Malty IPA. Not the norm and not really what I’m looking for in an IPA. Just too much going on.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle scooped up at Dutch’s in Cincinnati. Unfiltered orange-tan body with a steady off-white head. Cool, crisp aroma. Classic US IPA, maybe leaning towards the East with its chewy malt tones. Hops are ever-present, but never really dominating. Overall this is better than most IPAs out there, I’d gladly scoop up a sixpack of it.

From the bottle. Scent is malts and some sort of spice I can’t put my finger on. Taste is sweet caramel and butterscotch... Really no hop influence. Goes down kind of sticky... Not impressed.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle pour copper color. Nose of some dank hop, and if I search hard, some spicy hop aroma. Initial mild grapefruit bitterness, but I have to search for the hop flavor. some decent bitterness, but most flavor comes from the malt, more caramel flavor.

I good IPA from a small brewery. There is plenty of hops here, but missing some of the citrusy hints that come along with many IPAss.
