cbfobes (2880) - Quad Cities, Illinois, 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.

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.

bhensonb (13732) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 12, 2015
Bottle Julie brought from Illinois. Pours orange/copper with a slight beige head. Aroma is citrus and fruit. Med body, almost. Flavor is lightly roasty caramel, and some fruity/earthy hop. It is bitter. Might have been a big deal in 1985.

drowland (7803) - Georgia, USA - OCT 9, 2012
10/9/12. 12oz bottle from my parents in a care package, of all people - score random tick! Clear red pour with a medium khaki head that fades but laces fairly well. Musky, earthy hop aroma with some pine and floral aspects, and plenty of sweet malty caramel. Big malty flavor, plenty of caramel, etc., with a bitter hop kick, but not much hop character. Eh.

BVery (9285) - Plymouth, 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.

1pintatatime (134) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 29, 2014
Pours a deep amber color with a thick, creamy off-white head. The pillowy head dampens the aroma, but thereís a bit of caramel and earthiness coming through, along with some floral notes. Taste is not great. Starts out more like an amber with a sweetness thatís appealing, but then a harsh, bitter flavor comes to the fore. Itís not a subtle mix of sweet and bitter. Rather, the bitter just clobbers the malt. The finish isnít bad, but overall itís too much like average home brew.

Straight bitter hops with carbonation and a wheat grain finish. Would not buy again...
