2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle pour light gold. Nose dank and minimal fruit hop. Taste astringent bitter up front, some ethanol like flavor. No sweetness. Malt not contributing to flavor. Minimal bitter finish. Not very pleasing.

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.

Bottle sample at a tasting at our place. Thanks troubles. Clear and golden. Plastic, fruity bubblegum aroma, plasticy tastes that becomes very bitter. Carbonated, medium-to-full body, plastic finish.

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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark Amber Brownish Color, Medium Head, Decent Thin Lacing. Earthy, Malt, Faint Hops and Citrus Aroma. Earthy, Bready Malt, Slight Pine, Hop Bitter Finish. On Lighter Side in terms of body and taste. It Does Taste more like American Pale Ale than an IPA. None the Less, Rather Decent. Worth A Shot...

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. The thing exploded and half the bottle went on the counter. Very airy and full-bodied amber-colored brew. Pretty pedestrian aroma, really ... an "average" smelling beer. Drinks with a hint of citrus, but not much. I’d write this down as a pretty standard American ale. (#5279, 10/6/2013)
