MaltOne (215) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 21, 2013
Pours clear, light copper-gold. Amber tinged white head, like soft whipped cream, receded slowly, leaving a full white cap. Aroma out was nicely floral, herbal, citrus for a brief moment, then it was gone, leaving a slightly yeasty aroma. Initial flavor is slightly sweet, a modest hop bitter emerges with the sweet, and finishes slightly peppery. A little more body than some. Simple, clean, no complaints. ("Crossovert" ís discription is very interesting).

Dogbrick (8123) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 4, 2014
Pours a hazy copper-orange color with a medium foamy white head that diminishes steadily to an outer ring. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops, fruit and malt. Medium body with flavors of citrus, earthy hops and caramel malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a short hoppy aftertaste. Pretty average overall.

Can. Very decent, drinkable IPA. Little soap on the front end with floral hops and plenty of bitterness.

Frank (2863) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 25, 2014
I did not think an IPA from Capital was worth getting excited about and it turns out I was right. This is a pretty nice orange color w/ a soapy head and lots of lace. Nose is mild hops, mostly pine and floral. Taste is really along those same lines. It is perhaps slightly sweet w/ a rather nondescript hoppiness that works as far as balance but really doesnít impress. It finishes w/ a touch of iced tea astringent character and some lingering sweetness. This seems to be a well-brewed beer w/ no real off flavors or anything like that but it doesnít have the vibrant hop character I look for in the style. I enjoy many of Capitalís beers but think I will be sticking w/ the lagers for the most part as far as ones that I will try more than once.

TattooJack (90) - Illinois, USA - AUG 14, 2014
Poured from the can into my favorite pint glass, lots of nice foam and lacing. This is what we call a good commercial beer. It comes in a can, itís 13 bucks a twelver, and itís 6.2%. Itís quite drinkable to the tune of about 5 an hour. So over all if a six pack of IPA goes for about 10 bucks itís like you are getting the 2nd for 3. Best deal in the beer biz and its far from junk!

Chudwick (2144) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - APR 28, 2014
12oz bottle into Le Duvel (time stamp was unreadable - 70 IBUs) - nose is allergy season in a glass. Sip adds strong citrus notes, mostly grapefruit but way more astringent. Strong hop flavor but not much in the taste department. Noticeable malty backbone. Mutiny? more like moot-eeny.

TXBadger (1381) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 22, 2014
Pours a nice amber color. Pine and citrus on the nose. Grassy pine and grapefruit on the palate. Malty on the finish. More of an everyday type of IPA.

troyc (2473) - Illinois, USA - APR 9, 2014
[Bottle] Pours a lighter shade of amber. Little head. Prickly carbonation. Biscuity nose. Moderate levels of floral hops in the aroma and taste. Dry, grainy and somewhat astringent. Lighter body. Lingering black tea notes blend with hops in the finish. An easy drinker. Tasting notes from 2/2014.

RRistow12 (253) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - MAR 12, 2014
Tasted from bottle. Pours a clear amber with white head. Aroma is sweet caramel and toffee malt. Very little hop aroma. Maybe a little pine. Taste is definitely more towards the malt side. Sweet taste up front with mild bitter finish. Caramel, toffee, syrup and pine flavors. Medium bodied with a clingy sweet mouthfeel. I really like the taste and it's pretty smooth but really doesn't taste like an IPA. If you're looking for a bitterly hoppy beer look elsewhere. I think it's a good beer just mis-classified. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

HonkeyBra (3370) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - FEB 9, 2014
12 oz. bottle. Pours a darkish dingy orangish amber with a small white head. Aroma of toasted malt, citrus, pine, and lemon. Notes of cereal grains, mild caramel, iced tea. Flavor is moderately bitter initially with some caramel sweetness and burnt sugar notes. Bitterness intensifies as you drink but it is more of a nondescript generic bitterness rather than a flavorful hop bitterness. Medium bodied, very average carbonation. Finish is abrupt and bitter. This is average.

MIBRomeo (2559) - Wisconsin, USA - FEB 8, 2014
Hazy copper pour small off white head good lacing. Sweet citrus and caramel aroma. Average palate. A crisp citrus with amid bitterness level that lingers a touch piney in the finish. Good not great lacks a bit of malt balance.
