Yellow pour, thin white head. Aroma of hops and citrus. Flavor of hops, citrus, and light malts. Typical IPA, but the dry palate isn’t present here (which is a good thing).

Not the greatest IPA ever but holds pretty true to the style. Starts a little bland but has a bitter finish like you would expect from an IPA.

Beautiful hop aroma. I could just sit and smell this beer for ages. Light amber color that ours with a lot of fine yeast in suspension. Head dissipates quickly. Lots of hop flavor and a good amount of bitterness. The hop balance is more flavor than bitterness. The malt flavor is there, but you have to look past all of the hops. Nice lingering hop and malt aftertaste. Very enjoyable IPA.

bottle. Pours orange with some small sediment noticeable, off white yellow tinged head which is frothy and sticks around for a good while. Aroma is resiny, floral, piny, actually smells very similar to pot. Flavor delivers this hop aspect though it is tempered by some cakey malts. Medium bodied, smooth, very palatable. I actually like this alot, would be a good session IPA.

750 bottle. Pours a hazy amber with large off-white head. Big citrus and grass hop aroma. Delightfully bitter,but not the bitterest ipa I’ve had. Good brew.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rating from notes taken in early August, when I was having trouble connecting with the site ... I bought a single 12 oz bottle and poured it into a whiskey tumbler. This is certainly a malt-forward ipa, with hop bitterness well hidden beneath a wall of pale malt so thick that the liquid is reddish brown. The hops really leap out on the nose, which gives all the classic notes of grapefruit and pine, but fade in the mouth until only a faint bitterness remains. I like an ipa like this, but dedicated hop heads might find it to be disappointing.

4.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Lemony and astringent hops balanced with a delicious malty foundation. Seems like a hoppy pale ale more than a full-on IPA.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I picked this bottle up while in Warsaw, IN, enjoyed in Chicago. Aroma of very skunky hops, not in a good way though...kind of in an old feet / men’s locker room kind of way. Appearance very dark golden with a thin white head. Taste repugnant at first but it’s kind of growing on me a couple of sips in. The hops are definitely prevalent, relatively smooth and a little creamy. It’s not a bad IPA, especially after a couple of sips.

Bottle. Honey-gold pour with rather large particles in suspension. Generous white creamy head that forms rocky islands. Tropical fruit aroma-- oranges, lychee. Biscuity malt and tropical fruit hops, creamy palate. More fruity than bitter, but that was okay for me. This was gulpable!
