2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Golden pour with white head. Good hop smell. Tastes of malt more than hops. Was hoping for a better ipa from the aroma but was disappointed.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle: Dry grassy to metallic hoppy nose, golden coloured, a bit unclear, loose white head; dry tart and bitter flavour, very light bodied; short and grassy finish. A very monotonous brew…

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Lightbodied, dry. Grassy, metallic hops, pine, grapefruit. A bit one-dimensional. Less bitternes and more aroma would be better for me.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Average IPA aroma, though a bit grainy. Floral hops and breadlike aromas are present with hints of citrus and spices.Good balance in the flavor. Solid amounts of floral hops. Grainy bread and sweet caramel. There is a pine flavor present that I’m not too fond of. Citrus peel aftertaste.Crisp carbonation and light feeling. Easy to drink, but underwhelming as an IPA.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Copper pour, thin head. Nose is grain with a hint of hops. Lightly bitter. Middle is woody, malty and a bit confused. Finish has a coco like bitterness. Different for the "style", but an OK beer.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Slightly hazy golden coloured body with a frothy tan head, about two centimetres thick with a nice bit of bubbles rising from the bottom and sides. Aroma of hop pellets, light cardboardie malt, some yeast and a bit of a sterile ale - not much going on except from rather floral hop notes. Light-bodied; Mild hop flavour of floral and perfumey varieties with a hint of malt and a subtle grassy finish - not much after the initial taste. Aftertaste shows almost nothing, just water. Some mild hop bitterness remains, but this is a light beer with not much depth at all. Overall, a rather uninspired beer showing a tiny bit of hops and not much else, including no malt and no complexity. Not worth trying, even for those folks who love IPAs. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Merchant’s in Dearborn, Michigan on 02-August-2013 for US$1.89 sampled at home in Washington on 26-January-2014.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours a dark orange-amber with a cream colored, fine-grained head. Not much nose, and what there is is lime candy and floral notes. On the tongue, it’s bitter, saccharine, and with a nasty overtone that’s somewhere between spoiled flowers and overripe stone fruit. Finish is unpleasantly flaccid. Not good.
