1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
From a bottle. Very bitter yet somewhat fruity hop experience. That bitter hop thing really leaves a bitter linger all over the back of yer throat, quite nasty but certainly on style. Has a thin rocky head. Yes, it does have some cutting co2 which makes it almost acceptable to a lager lover but don’t be fooled, this is a very bitter hoppy beer with lots of personality.

Murky amber with a quickly dissipating taupe topper and patchy lacing. Aroma of grains, floral hops, light caramel and vegetal notes. Taste is floral and vegetal with caramel and light bitterness. Ho-hum.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a cloudy honey amber. Large frothy long lasting head. Good lacing. Mild grapefruit aroma. Flavor is mild bitter. This is a very drinkable beer, however its pretty unremarkable. It is a decent session beer, but otherwise unremarkable. Personally I want a little wow factor when I drink an IPA.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours very light with a thick head. Aroma is subtle. The taste is over carbonated and too fizzy which takes away from the taste. You do get a full mouth of hops.

Golen in color, clear with a thin head. Light hops flavor and aroma. This was not the regular IPA flavor I am looking for. Way too light.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can. Light orange and citrus peel aroma. Golden yellow with giant head. Lemon, stale barley malt and mild orange peel hops flavor. Okay but definitely below the average IPA. Never really considered 5.5% to be ’light’ alcohol either.

Pours a straw color. Small head that changes into a thin film. Tons of floating chunks. Aroma is yeasty and hints of hops. Lightly fruity and citrusy. Somewhat creamy mouthfeel.
