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.

Can. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate bittersweet flavor with a moderate bittersweet finish of medium duration. Good brew.

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.

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.

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.

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.

b3shine (6238) - 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.

This wasnít too bad. The amount of hops really tastes more like a pale ale than an IPA, but itís decent.

Aurelius (4570) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 1, 2015
OK label, standard US longneck, clear golden brew, thin white head. Reasonably good aroma - I havenít 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.

Patrickctenchi (4514) - Coxís Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - APR 11, 2013
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. Easygoing.

Appearance: Dispenses a clear, coppery body with an inch of whitish head yielding a bit of lacing.

Smell: Pale maltiness, touches of toasted grains, a small lick of caramel. Herb, spice and lemon from the hops, but this all is pretty mild, too.

Taste: Pale malts, lightly grainy with some candied, sugary notes, but, itís acceptable. Light lemony citrus and spicy hops impart a restrained level of bitterness, leaving it on the mild end of the spectrum. Upon warming, a little harsh solventy hint begins to show and holds through the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Overall: Not particularly good and the cracks start to show as it warms.
