2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
A: The pour is a hazy amber/copper color, a bit too dark for my liking when it comes to an IPA. A finger or so worth of khaki colored head.
S: The nose starts off nicely with some tropical fruits like pineapple and mango. Thatís about where the pleasantries end. After that I get some bubblegum, very sweet caramel malt, and toffee.
T: Intensely sweet to begin, and things donít change too much. Thereís a weird spice flavor like cinnamon and nutmeg. Lots of sweet, caramel malt and toffee. Thereís a bit of bitterness, but not a very pleasant one.
M: The body is medium to full with the carbonation a bit on the low side for an IPA.
D: This was pretty awful, especially for something that should be easy to do, like an IPA. No real hop character to speak of...
