3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is a decent IPA that you can pretty much get anywhere. Itís citrus and pine notes are pleasant, although it can be a bit bitter at times. I had it paired with fish tacos, which didnít really suit the beer well. I would go with something that doesnít accentuate subtle spices. Overall though, the hoppy aroma, earth yeast, golden pour with a nice frothy head, are good. In the end the flavors are perhaps a tad too uninventive, but I canít find much fault there. Itís a decent IPA, one of the most drinkable, it just isnít great.

Smooth flavor. Rich deep flavors. Has a signature chocolate note that I also taste in fat tire. Overall very balanced beer and very drinkable. Maybe lacking a bit of edge but thats not what this one is about.
