Definitely not digging the taste on this one. Too malt forward and far to yeasty. Not enough hops seems off.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Location: 12 oz bottle at Max Lagers, 4/17/13
Aroma: The nose is citrus hops, some caramel and pale malts, and a hint of floral hop
Appearance: This one has a bright orange pour, a white head, and some fairly heavy lacing
Flavor: The taste is similar to the nose component-wise, mildly sweet and medium-plus bitter
Palate: The body is medium, the carbonation is average-plus, and it has a dry finish
I thought this one was solid enough, but not great, considering that I was drinking this right after the house "Hopsplosion!!!" draft, and I liked that one more...

Bottle from Total Wine, Naples. The pour’s amber with a tiny head. Plenty of dandruff and floaties in the glass. The nose is full of caramel, sweetened orange peel, toast. The taste is more caramel, a bit of unripened melon. Moderately grassy bitterness on the finish. Medium body, soft carbonation. Overall, a pretty middle of the road IPA.
