4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
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. I’m glad to have tried this. This would be my goto beer if it was available in more places.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
OK label, standard US longneck, clear golden brew, thin white head. Reasonably good aroma - I haven’t got the patience tonight to characterize the complexities of a Genesee contract beer. Happy, hoppy and malty notes with lemon pith and malt. Some chemical tones in there. Finishes out with some clingy citrus, pith, tangy malt. Kroger, Savannah.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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 can’t 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). It’s not quite a drain pour--If you really need the alcohol, you can finish it--but otherwise it’s not worth the calories.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
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

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

300th rating. Aroma of tropical fruits, taste is mango, peach, grapefruit at the end, mild alcohol, short aftertaste. Good beer!
