Got this beer because the bottle has a really sweet label and a really awesome name. If every beer was this cool picking beer would be way harder. That being said, this is actually a really good beer hoppy without being way too bitter. Nicely balanced. Iím glad to have tried this. This would be my goto beer if it was available in more places.

Malaclemys (402) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - DEC 18, 2014
Bottle pours light copper with white head. Aroma caramel, butterscotch, toffee, earthy very little hop aroma. Taste is caramel, alcohol, not very much hop, toffee, on the sweet side, light grain. Medium light. Not the best IPA unless its an english then maybe ok.

bubbleflubber (1853) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - DEC 9, 2014
Pours into the glass a brownish amber with a wispy head that leaves light ring retention. The nose has some grains. This is very sweet upfront, caramel and fruitiness. The body is thin and has some grains and messy bitters to finish. I canít find a whole lot of IPA in this, unfortunately. The spices in addition to its sweetness and lack of palate substance makes it feel cheaply made, almost like a brewer trying to hard to make the "craft" offering appeal to the macro crowd. Not great.

This is to beer what your home chemistry set experiments were to chemistry. The "IPA" label seems to have been chosen at random simply because no other labels worked. The dominant flavors are fruit sweetness and spices (like a really low quality Belgian spice mix). Itís not quite a drain pour--If you really need the alcohol, you can finish it--but otherwise itís not worth the calories.

Tall boy. Pours a nice clear amber with a thick foamy ivory head. Thick lacing. Aroma of caramel, pine, and grains. This is sickly sweet. A hot mess. Everything across the board. Such a weird mixture. Sweet caramel and grains overpower the floral and pine hops. Sweet fruit in there too. I like my IPAs bitter and hoppy. This is just too sweet for me. Total disappointment

ordybill (120) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - SEP 14, 2014
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- Grain and hop aroma with a wink of fruit added Appearance- clear slightly dark orange body, with a small white head with no retention. Taste- Bitter malt taste has a mildly unpleasant aftertaste Palate- Lightly carbonated, with a medium body that has an oily texture that finishes with a bitterness at the end. Overall- An average IPA. Has the bitter finish and a pretty good color. Definitely not the best I have had.

fitwitchik (367) - USA - AUG 18, 2014
Poured from a bottle into a pint glass a light yellow orange with a thick off white head. Aroma is very floral sugared corn. Flavor is overly sweet for an IPA. Reminds me of a bitter lager more than a IPA. Beautiful looking brew though too bad its unbalanced in overall feel on the palate. It is a fair brew to say the most.

Bork (334) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - AUG 3, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 31, 2014 Comes across more as a marketing coupe than a craft beer. Not unpleasant but hops and bitterness are way out of whack.

Think back to your high school days and you we're just coming off of a 2 week grounding and you are finally emancipated. You back your 1984 mercury marquis out of the garage after you haven't driven for awhile and there are multiple ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
