decaturstevo (5432) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - JUL 19, 2015
Orange pour with white head. Aroma is light malt and a touch of citrus. Also a touch of perfume on the nose. Light dry malt start with a citrus bitter. Floral notes as well. Not really enough malt to carry the bitter or the abv. Not sure all this abv comes from malt, surely is dry and bitter. Medium body with a touch foamy. do in a pinch.

Onslow (1264) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - JUN 25, 2015
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Amber with white head. Aroma of mild malt and light resin. Taste is malt with moderate resin. A tiny flourish of hops at the finish. Agile. More like an APA Imo. Tasty tho.

BlackHaddock (4920) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2015
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 íin your faceí 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.

Bendrixian (1329) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 24, 2015
Clear brew with amber colour. Hps and pinecones, altough muted are the aromaís main character but there is a soapy note in this that I canít shake. American styled IPA but fairly medium body and again that soap taste comes through. not a fan.

Dieselpunk had surprised me, there beer is very subtle, smooth. Almost a velvety finish. Definitely like this one.

ChainGangGuy (4530) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - FEB 10, 2015
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.

Aurelius (4651) - 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.

Malaclemys (421) - 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 (2035) - 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.
