jmcgavin12 (492) - Madison, USA - APR 20, 2013
Bright gold pour with a frothy tan head. Hoppy resin notes on the notes with a bit of spicy fruitness. Sweet bitter taste with a pretty easy finish. Not the hoppiest ipa but overall decent

Ratman197 (10200) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - NOV 9, 2014
Bottle poured a clear golden amber with a small lasting off white head. Aromas of biscuit, earthiness, grapefruit and light pine. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of bread, earthiness and a hint of citrus with a crisp dry moderately bitter finish.

cpetrone84 (1535) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 11, 2014
Pour is dark golden amber with a small amount of light tan head that dissipates quickly. Nose is incredibly sweet, sugary caramel, a bit herbal in the hops but light. Taste is stale malt, sweet, sugary, faint herbal tea hop. Syrupy body, moderate carbonation.

markducommun (238) - Wilmette, Illinois, USA - OCT 10, 2014
Clear golden brown, moderate white head. Smells of pine resin, bread, light sweeter citrus. Light bitterness throughout, mainly sweet. Medium, light body. Reasonable amount of alcohol present. Some acidity. Lighter carbonation. Some amount of oiliness. Fine.

bkurtz (866) - PERU - OCT 10, 2014
Bottle - Pours a clear, deep golden with a full, creamy head. Aromas of pineapple and pine. Notes of grapefruit and juicy malts. Nice bitterness, but a note of soap at the end.

Dogbrick (8671) - 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 (3018) - 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 (159) - 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 (2209) - 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 (1522) - 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.
