For starters, I should have known better simply because the bottle cap is generic. If the brewery can’t afford to brand their bottle cap, how can they afford decent hops? Anyway, carefully pouring the beer into my mug resulted in half beer, half foam. I had to wait a good 10 minutes for the foam to settle before emptying the bottle. The beer itself has very little IPA flavor to it. Hardly a hint of hoppiness or bitterness. It reminds me more of a Blue Moon with the orange already squeezed into the bottle before it was even poured. This is the second time I’ve tried Climax IPA, six months from the first try, so it’s not a fluke. If you’re looking for a true microbrew IPA, don’t include Climax on your hit list.

Cask at Uno’s Metuchen. Pours clear amber with a small, bubbly off-white head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is toast, caramel, and cookie malt with earthy hops, dates and figs. Flavor is moderate hops and bitterness, light esters, cherry, and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Ed5388 (2410) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - JUN 6, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours a hazy burnt orange color with no head. Aroma of caramel, candied oranges, and slightly floral. Taste is caramel up front, followed by some sweet citrus fruit in the middle, and ends with a sharp piny bitterness.

EithCubes (5156) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 18, 2013
Bottle. Nose biggest in caramel, sweet with fruit, hops, pours ruby-tinged golden with a large rocky beige head. Taste is very sweet with much lighter bitterness. Caramel and generic but very intense fruitiness, aggressive medium-full body. I can never tell with these homebrewish ales if they’re infected or just fermented weirdly, yeast is always out of control.

rlgk (12025) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 6, 2012
Draught at Rattle&Hum, NYC. Cloudy golden/grey beer with a nice lasting offwhite head. Malty fruity hoppy aroma, grass, hay, floral, citrus, some pepper. Herbal citrus flavor, grassy, metal notes, fruity, grapefruit, banana notes. Decent without being special.

Bottle. I think my bottle must have been a bit too old -- foamed up pretty huge when I poured. Light brown to deep caramel color, tan frothy head. Taste is off -- a little astringent and coupled with high carbonation. I would try again just to see if this is an outlier.

jackl (5342) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - AUG 21, 2012
Keg @ Barcade, Brooklyn (probably). The pour’s deep amber with a medium off-white head. The nose is strong pine bitterness, some wood and light sweet honey. The taste is hay, bitter pine. The pine flavor’s strong, but not overbearing. Woody body. Quite dry on the long, bitter finish. Active carbonation, but easy to drink. Overall, this was perfectly fine. Pretty dry but flavorful.

alobar (2969) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 17, 2012
Clear copper color with a tall soapy off-white head. Aroma of pine, grapefruit, and resin. Flavor is quite bitter with some citrus and caramel, but largely pine and bitter hops. Decent beer-just not well balanced.
