Its not too bad or good. Just ok. The aroma is weak, hint of grain. Appearance is amber with no head or legs. Palate is minimal hops with a grain wash finish, kind of flat. Overall its just ok

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This $1.59 bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a very large sized head of foamy finely sized off-white colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a typically carbonated transparent light brown orange colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The aroma was mild hop. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start mediumly tingly at the finish. The flavor contained notes of hops. An OK quaff-able brew with a so-so flavor. Forgetable and nothing special.

Orange pour with a white head. Nose is straw, grass, and grain. A bit of bread, some mild citrus peel, and just a sweet malt nose overall. The flavor is just kind of sweet with a lot of grain, bread, and toast. A light bitterness, some straw, grass, and a light citrus peel quality. Very meh.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a slightly hazy copper with a finger of rocky white head. Settles quickly, minimal lacing. Aromas is hoppy, citrus, pine, with underlying malt and hay. Starts moderately hoppy and a builds a litte, fades into tones of honey and wheat, finish mildy malty and nutty. Bitterness lingers. Moderate carbonation and medium body. A crisp mouthfeel and a slightly astringent finish. Not super hoppy, but a drinkable, enjoyable IPA.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not a terrible IPA, but not great. Pine and some citrus and somewhat bitter. Lacks in balance and the hop choice is not the most appealing.

First had this beer 20 years ago, and then it vanished from the area. Funny to see it back after all this time.
12oz bottle. Small off-white head, lightly hazy amber body. Aroma is moderately sweet, bread/caramel, some grapefruit. Taste is medium sweet, grapefruit, some pine, light bread. Medium body, light resin.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle that cost about $1.75. Bright orange yellow color with good head and good lace, fits the style. Smells like a touch of citrus hops and not much else. Taste is bitter, citrus, hoppy, solid IPA but just doesnít wow me when compared to everything out there these days.

Very middling IPA to me.
Agree with many of the other comments about poor balance between flavors-- itís not that I donít like the citrusy hop notes or the very sweet sugary flavors that compete, but they donít go well together.
Itís ok. Iíd rather drink it than some of the pseudo IPAs out there that taste like pilsners. But thereís too much flavor going on for it to be this uninteresting.
