Bready malt taste. Hop bitterness is mild - shows up after several seconds. Hop aroma is muted as is the hop flavor. Very bland - canít believe itís an IPA. Not a fan.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
It kinda stinks! Not a real bad taste, but it is lacking malt. Very one dimensional beer, even though the hops arenít real prevalent either, but do dominate in this lackluster beer. Needs more of everything, except alcohol. It was reasonably priced, but I donít think Iíll buy it again.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
This beer is reasonably priced. I thought Iíd try it out. The aroma is off stale oranges and skunkiness. Flavor is the same with the additional taste of roasted dirty socks.

Donít buy this perfectly awful beer. The beer equivalent of individually shrink wrapped slices of American cheese.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Leftover phone rates from Hilton Head. Clear orange/Amber pour. Smell is heavily caramel malt, citrus, mild hop, bready. Taste is a hodge podge mix of caramel malts, breadiness, citrus. Just a below average Ipa.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle into shaker. Nice white foam settles into lingering thick lace. Translucent amber color. Hay aroma with herbs and earth tones. Not as bitter as I would expect from an IPA. Lingering hoppy finish however. I would drink this again.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a golden orange from the bottle with thin lacy white head that doors nicely. Aroma of nice pine and citrus hop notes with a hint of pale malt back. Taste follows with a nice bitter finish that lasts for a while. Decent, but nothing special.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bought at the local grocery store in Oscoda, MI because it was the only beer I hadnít tried. Scrawled on my sheet of notes from the trip really large is the word underwhelming. Poured clear amber with piney caramel aroma. Flavor pretty plain and boring. Sweet base with hop finish but nothing strong at all. Overall, would pass if had to do it again.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear amber color with a moderate white head on it. Nose is definitely quite hoppy and bitter, though this might be old, since I canít get any detailed nose aside from a faint whiff of resin. Taste is pretty bitter and long lasting, but has just a slight sweetness in the finish. Nowhere near a great IPA, but Iíd drink it again.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12oz bottle from ABC on Betton. Copper-orange pour with thin white head. Aroma is caramel malt, pine, floral, herbal. Tastes are sweet malt, little resiny, toasty, background bitter. Kinda bland.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
A simple but effective IPA that shows ample hop bite and spiciness, while still maintaining a solid, subtly malty caramel backbone. Clean and crisp with a medium long spicy hop fade.
