COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This India Pale Ale moves from heady hop aromas to a long, clean finish. A spicy hop character is expertly balanced by a soft malt backbone for a complex ale with rich full flavor. Enjoy the ride!

12oz brown bottle. Pours dark gold with some haze floating around. Thin white cap that stays throughout the glass. Nose has caramel, grapefruity hops. Taste has some candy sweetness, grapefruity and piney hop flavours. Slightly bitter end, finished with lasting lemon, grapefruit and a pine hops. Medium body, decent carbonation. Pretty average IPA.

Patrickctenchi (3483) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - DEC 24, 2012
Orange-amber, hazy with a minimal tan head.. Scent is slightly sour fruit, tart caramel. Taste is dusty, bready...very dull hop bitter. Pretty awful.

reebtogi (4109) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 8, 2012
355ml bottle pours a light golden orange color with a finger of white head that leaves a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is light caramel and not much else. Taste is a caramel malty sweetness with a mild spicy hop bitterness. Medium bodied with mild carbonation. Just not enough hops to be an IPA, barely even a pale ale. Not recommended, as it is just too darn sweet.

~Caramel bready aroma with floral and spicy hop. Some berry like fruitiness as well ~Pours a cloudy orange amber color with big lasting creamy white head. ~Earthy hop flavor with light caramel sweetness and bread. ~Medium full bodied with medium CO2, bitter woody hop resiny finish. ~Got this on sale for $10 for a case of 24. Excellent deal. Not a typical IPA. I enjoy this one though and won’t have a problem drinking all 24 bottles.

Bottle from BevMo. Almost completely scentless beer. This beer is terrible. Tastes like dirty dishwater. Horrible excuse for any type of beer, let alone an IPA.

ccex (909) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 4, 2012
I had never heard of this one until my next door neighbor unexpectedly gave me a few today from his recent road trip. 12 oz. bottle pours a hazy amber with a white head and very little lacing. Smells like an IPA, but aroma is full of lemons and pine. Tastes too salty for my liking, The malts come out only in the finish, which is also unfortunately metallic and bitter. This the worst IPA I have tried so far, but the price was right.

satan165 (1019) - River Grove, Illinois, USA - NOV 16, 2011
Anticlimactic 1000th. Aroma is lemon furniture polish, pine sea breeze. Appeaerance is Cloudy yellow, burnished shoulders. Nice active carb, lingering thin sponge. Flavor is salt, clean hopping, neutral refreshment, near crisp dried pine branches prime for kindling.

fraternie (814) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 6, 2011
UPDATED: OCT 6, 2012 A very sessionable IPA at a reasonable price, this beer opens with malty aromas and a clean hop note. Sweet caramel malt dominates the body with understated notes of grapefruit citrus, while piney hops creep in on the back of the palate. Finishes with a bit of a metallic aftertaste.

Dragonfly1 (487) - Colorado, USA - MAY 11, 2011
Bottle from Whole Foods. Very light amber, nice fluffy head. Faint hop aroma. Bitter up front and holds through the finish. Some biscuit malt in the background. Hoppiness is primarily pine-y and spicy. Solid overall, nothing special but a good sessionable IPA...
