3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The beer pours an amber orange color with good head retention and lacing. Smell is light citrus and with a h hint of earthiness. Taste follows the nose. Very lightly malted. Overriding dimension is a dry hoppiness with some pepper, earthiness and light wet tobacco. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and drinkability is average. Itís dryness had me ready for another style after just one beer. A solid IPA. More in the English style.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
aroma is faint but floral and slightly roasty...nice looking amber color and creamy white head that leaves lacing..taste some bitterness up front but overwhelmed by a biscuity/lagerlike malt flavor..palate is light,slightly sticky and slick..overall tastes like a sweeter version of a lager i prefer more bitterness and oomph from an ipa

Am I starting to be one of those people who like ipas? What is going on? This is a sort of identity dilemma. Just like every other ipa this smells good and fresh. The immediate rust taste is off putting but it quickly goes away and the beer tastes delicious then. I donít like the rainbow label. Would drink again.
