COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An intriguing, complex Ale with medium-copper color, it is the ultimate expression of an IPA with hearty spice aromas and extreme hop flavors.

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.

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.

b3shine (5493) - Indiana, USA - JUL 9, 2013
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.

Strangebrewer (865) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 7, 2013
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.

Good beer nothing special but love the taste of this Ipa. Got it for free so can’t complain

rollinsr (383) - Atlanta, GEORGIA - JUL 3, 2013
Pours amber with off-white head. Aroma is reminiscent of champagne with a hint of hops. Taste is somewhat construed with no real discernible hop or malt profiles. More flavor than your run-of-the-mill brew but I wouldn’t consider those flavors to be desirable at all.

Panzuriel (1312) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - JUN 22, 2013
Diesel punk IPA, bought mostly due to name and label. This beer pours a worn penny copper. Head is firm small bubbles. Nose is faint with hops, additionally there is some sweet notes like watered honey. Taste is back of the mouth floral hop bitterness. Body is light but with some fizz. A bit less kick than the average IPA, still a good drinking beer. Maybe one to get your friends as an introductory IPA, the label will sell them.

Cybercat (3342) - Georgia, USA - JUN 18, 2013
Pours a nice clear amber with a fairly thick and fluffy ivory head. Aroma is hoppy but not strong or complex. Tolerable, though. Hoppy flavor has a fruity underpinning, orange and apple, stronger than what the aroma promises. Texture has average fizz and viscosity, and leaves an acceptable hoppy finish. Definitely not the best IPA I have had - but palatable. Good for a party.

demitriustown (1070) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - JUN 16, 2013
1 pint can: Appearance is a clear amber pout with a thick white head that lingers. Aroma has got a nice hoppy note to it with subtle notes of caramel malts in the backing. Taste is got a sticky resin hop note to it not quite as balanced I would like it to be but definitely drinkable. Palate is medium to low carbonation with a lingering resin note in the aftertaste. Overall, Decent IPA. Cheers!
