2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured from bottle, a copper/amber color with a slight haze, creamy white head that persists with lots of thick lacing. Aroma is slightly sweet, citrusy but little hop and overall very weak. First sips were not remarkable, the bitterness hit late followed by a not bad but not good aftertaste. Let it sit for a bit, 15 minutes later drank more and the taste rounded out, and aftertaste improved but still not remarkable. Overall a light to medium body, not very bitter for an IPA but not much else in the taste except the hops so not terribly complex which is really what lowered my rating in addition to the weak aroma. Mouthfeel is pleasant so it’s a drinkable beer, just doesn’t stand out.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours medium copper with a lasting white head. Aroma is citrus hops with a hint of spice. Flavor is aggressively hoppy but well rounded. Only a slight spicy bitterness in the aftertaste makes this a very refreshing beer that would be good for a session IPA.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy copper color with very little head on it. Nose is pretty hoppy with a slight bit of citrus in there, but it smells like the hops are old. Taste is bitter, but in a disappointing way, like bitterness for bitterness’ sake, rather than using the full palate of the hops. Mediocre at best.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
16oz can, thanks to Caterwaul. Shared with friends over a game of Catan. Code on bottle is "0143 09:51". Clear orange color. Big tall off-white head, fades to a thin, rocky amount, leaves some bubbly lace. Musty, caramel, and lightly spicy aroma. Big caramel malt in the aroma. Mostly sweet, light bitter, some spiciness. Some unnecessary musty wet sock aroma. Medium body. Lighter, soft carbonation. Lightly syrupy in the body, but a more dry finish. Definitely very subpar for an IPA. Pretty spicy, and a light buzz / burn in the finish. Not good.

Bottle. Orange malt and metallic orange peel aroma. Golden yellow with moderate head. Sweet orange malt and moderate bitter orange peel/quinine flavor. Not horrible but rough.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I wouldn’t have but, but the name/price/artistic bottle was intriguing. Not a bad IPA but less hoppy than I prefer. Fairly smooth going down but didn’t leave the most pleasant aftertaste. Worth the $8 to try a 6pack but probably won’t buy again.

Can to pint (thanks jmborggren). Looks decent; a transparent amberish orange with foamy off-white head. Smells and tastes of bitter hops with a pale malt backbone. Average on the palate. An okay beer, but an underwhelming IPA.

bottle. Poured clear medium amber with a moderate thick/creamy off-white head. Caramel malt aroma with an herbal hop note. Medium creamy texture with a bitter finish, not too dry. Caramel, roasted malts with citrus hops. Lingering tart bitterness.
