Reviewers: Eric Ducote (BR Beer Scene), Jay Ducote (BiteandBooze.com), and James Lawson (Whiskybomb.com), and Charles (BigMouthPodcast.com).
Serving: 16 ounce can.
Appearance: Deep gold, good head, good color, nothing to complain about here.
Aroma: The aroma wasn't as strong as expected, which was good for someone like Charles who isn't a huge IPA fan. I found it to be more reserved that the Schlafly A IPA that we tried earlier, look for it on a future Feature Beer Friday!
Taste: Very smooth, still a little more reserved and less hop forward than expecting, especially out of a beer so fresh.
Mouthfeel: I found it to be a little creamy, which is a good thing, and also with a slight lingering hop bitterness that didn't bother me at all. Jay described it as a pretty standard IPA mouthfeel.
Overall: We all enjoyed the beer, but I feel like it loses something out of the can as opposed to on tap. Charles, who isn't really an IPA gay said it was a "good starter beer for a non IPA drinker," and I agree. I also feel like it's the best local example of the style, and there's nothing wrong with drinking local!
Overall Rating: 72.5
