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.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
16 oz can. Pours a slightly hazy orange golden color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have some citrus, herbal and dank hop character that seems a bit muted with some caramel and toasted malts. Nothing else is really going on with this and I will likely not revisit.

10/28/13. 16oz can from Jen’s and Friends while chillin’ 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.

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.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
19th May 2015: Laguna Niguel, California. 12oz bottle into a Corsendonk badged stemmed tulip while cooking oven chips and Bratwurst. Clear and bright amber pour, white head on top. Pleasant hop nose and flavour: not so ’in your face’ as the West Coast varieties I have been experiencing in California. This is calmer, but still hoppy first and foremost. although the bitterness is tempered by the malt content somewhat. Not for the hop heads amongst us but decent enough and a lot closer to an English IPA than a West Coast of the US style.

This wasn’t too bad. The amount of hops really tastes more like a pale ale than an IPA, but it’s decent.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours clear, bubbly amber with a tall, off-white head.
Scent is grassy hop, light caramel.
Flavour is mildly bitter, citrus peel....
A little leafy/earthy.
Fairly straightforward, mild IPA.

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.
