I wouldn’t have thought this to be an IPA. Why insist on a strong malt profile? The hops are cloaked. Should’ve quadrupled the dry hopping... It’s really like a dirty pale ale. It’s good to me, but neither what I wanted or expected.

Bottle from BevMo, Phoenix. A lot more malt than hops in the aroma than I was expecting, as well as some citrus. Pours an opaque golden color with a thin white head and scant lacing. Taste is like the aroma with a lot of malt up front with some citrus. The finish had the dry hoppy bite of an IPA though. Not a bad beer, but didn't seem to have the right balance for me.

Poured from a can, it has a stone fruit aroma, but there’s some pine in the flavor. Not bad for a small brewery in the middle of the desert!

Can 1 oz. Pours clear copper amber with a nice beige head. Aroma is malty caramel almost too swet hoppy citric piny fruity. Flavor is like aroma; nicely sweet malty with a good bitter bite, lots of piny and grapefruit character, longlived finish.

12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours copper with an off-white head. Aroma of floral hops, pale and cereal malts, plus some weird notes. Flavor the same with very little hops. Average texture. I hope this bottle might be bad or old or something, because it’s not the best beer.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle, extra from trade with my friend Randy in Arizona. Pour is a foamy mess. Light orange color with a huge foamy head that fades slowly. Somewhat faint aroma, oranges and flowers mostly. Taste is ok, light sweetness with moderate bitterness. Mostly floral in taste but the malt is noticeable too. The problem with this beer is the overcarbonation. Every sip foams up in my mouth. The finish is pretty dry too. Not a fan of this.

Hazed golden color with sudsy white head. Slight orangey aroma. This is an impressively dry beer, it leaves you thirsty for another sip in a refreshing sort of way...earthy, dry hoppiness dominates.

A good strong hops aroma. Looks fine. This is great. A solid hop flavor throughout, with some good floral notes. Quite tasty. 2 for 2 for Mudshark.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A good if unexceptional IPA. Nice deep copper color. Some malty base. Taste is all bitterness and grapefruit. As a traditional West Coast style IPA, there’s nothing to complain about here. Edit: After it warms up a bit this is better. The malt starts asserting itself more after waking up from its slumber. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
