Pours a lightish copper with a 2 finger, fluffy off white head. Aroma is biscuit, pine, light citrus and floral hops, caramel and a little toffee. Flavor is mroe biscuit, caramel, piney and planty hops are most prevailant, but some citrus as well, a slightly Englishy yeast profile, toast and some bitter pine and light grassiness to the finish. Palate is light to medium bodied, with a creamy to slick feel, mild carbonation and off dry finsh with a lingering bitterness clinging to the palate. O.K. overall. No major flaws, but nothing all that impressive.

Finhead (1189) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - JUL 5, 2013
Clear, amber-gold pour with a white head. The aroma is a little earthy with herbal and light pine notes. It has a light, watery texture with lively carbonation. The taste is bittersweet and easy drinking with smooth, quick finish. Not bad, but not exciting either.

12oz bottle brought back from the midwest. Poured a clear amber color with a medium white head. Aroma was heavy hop notes - earthy character, some light pine. Flavor was earthy hops, huge malt notes, caramel. A touch more malty than I’d have liked, but it was pretty clean and easy to drink in the end.

12 ounce bottle, $2 single at HyVee, Ankeny, IA. Picked up as part of my scramble to not let November be my month with the fewest ratings ever. Screw-top crown, followed by my sin of pouring into a plain old shaker glass. Appearance is a bright amber, with plenty of thick, orange-y foam. Smell has some light citrus and grassy hop overtones. A fake store brand beer this may be, but at least they are up front about their hop bill. Taste brings up some earthy hop notes suited to an English IPA. This is more hop-forward than their web page suggests. Has a bit of a curdled aftertaste, but that may be my cold speaking. I see that I can trust the Point guys for a solid brew even when contracted.

cbfobes (2295) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JUL 14, 2012
Poured from 12oz bottle, pours a clear copper with a decent white head that sticks around for awhile, a little lacing in the glass, the aroma actually had a nice amount of hops with a little bit of citrus on the nose, the flavor is kind of off on the front end, kind of musty with a finish of hops, the mouthfeel is creamy and nice though and that at least helps it out some, overall, pretty lower middle of the road IPA out there but not bad for $7 a sixer.

GJF (1250) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - JUL 29, 2012
A copper beer. Thin white head. It’s generally malty, not much hop character. More like an american amber than an IPA, but it’s drinkable.

Pours a mostly clear amber color with white head. Citrus and cereal grain on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a floral note.

BVery (6416) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - OCT 23, 2012
Bottle. Clear bright orange pour with a small soapy white head. Nice aroma of caramel malt and floral hops. Taste is unbalanced - needs more malt backing. Finishes fairly harsh.
