2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Does not resemble an IPA in my opinion. Aroma means more on the malty side. Not that impressed.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
The appearance combines a medium whire head and a clear orange color, and the aroma blends caramel malts, dough yeast, and a hint of generic hops. The taste combines a slight sourness and a touch of sweetness, but the lack of hoppy bitterness is surprising and inappropriate for the style. The mouthfeel fuses a medium body, soft carbonation, slick texture, and an abrupt finish.

1.3 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
If Pabst made an IPA but it would taste like this. No wait, it has even less taste than that. In fact, the bad aftertaste is stronger than the flavor while actually drinking this stuff. Aroma? Ha! I guess all I can say is that the aroma is not objectionable since there is no aroma. Letís see, think positives. Well, itís quite clear and has a nice light copper color. Itís also 6.9% abv, so I suppose you could get drunk on it faster than most beers if thatís what youíre after. And the label is sort of interesting. But letís be real. This is the worst excuse for an IPA I have ever tasted.

10/28/13. 16oz can from Jenís and Friends while chilliní in Savannah. Amber pour with a small khaki head. Malty aroma, earthy hops, lots of bread and caramel. Similarly malty flavor, almost no hop to speak of - an earthy or floral sense, but nothing else. Meh.

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 itís a drinkable beer, just doesnít 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 bitternessí 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.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.
