Nose, palate, and finish of "menthol and bandaids". NOT what I would expect from an IIPA.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Murky, light umber color with a smaller covering of big taupe bubbles. Lightly fruity aroma. Hints of fruit wine and floral hops. Earthy, fruity flavors with light strawberries and tart cranberries. Reminds me of a traditional old ale with a bit more hops. Finish gains some malt, but still a bit “off” with the tartness. 3/10

Bottle at the "Dean is a cheap bastard tasting cos he let Rene buy a beer from the shop and then asked to taste it for the tick" tasting. Pours a murky brown beer with a small off white head on top. Aroma of faint hops, light caramel and some grassy notes. Hops have faded a bit. Flavor is very thin, light bitterness and has low carbonation. Not the best IIPA.
