Boothead (26) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 26, 2012
Although it doesn’t taste like a regular IPA (at least to me), I find the brew a most pleasurable drinking experience! Nothing revealing in the aroma or appearance--uninspiring scent and medium tinted. Nice bite to the aftertaste, but a less then clean finish.

Awesome beer for the price. Overall, of course, its nothing special. Its what I call a Party Craft, that is, I’d bring this out when I dont want to spend a ton but obviously dont want to drink BMC beers. Better than Trader Joe’s brand.

hockeybeerguy (917) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - APR 3, 2014
Reviewed from notes. The appearance had a golden orange yet fairly clean body with a one finger white foamy head that leaves a fair amount of speckled lacing. The smell had a a fair amount of hops up front and a decent amount of hops. The taste was balanced but mostly staying true to an AIPA style, a somewhat malty yet bitter aftertaste, sticky sweet finish. The palate sat at a light to medium, fairly sessionable, carbonation seems subdued for its style but really just mediocre for the most part. Overall, this is not a bad AIPA, but nothing spectacular and nothing to quickly come back to.

maxwelldeux (3090) - Everett, Washington, USA - JAN 17, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear amber color with very little head on it. Nose is quite hoppy, but seems like it has sat on the shelf for so long that the hops have degraded into awful nothingness. Taste is bitter, but again tastes like it is well past its prime. Really not good, though I blame the store, mostly.

Braudog (5496) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - DEC 22, 2013
Bottle. Looks exactly like their pale and amber ... even copper collor and "normal" looking. This one is slightly hoppier, but not by much. Just a little bit of an earthy, pine-bark sting ... otherwise, just a "normal" drinker without any exceptional character either way. (#5395, 12/1/2013)

I’m very fond of this IPA. It is different though. It is almost sweet, but still pleasantly hoppy.

twistedwedge (8) - Surprise, Arizona, USA - AUG 8, 2013 does not count
Not impressed. Grassy pine aroma, biscuit heavy and very little hop flavor. 6.49/six pack at the local grocery. “It’s a head snapper”? Hardly… This is by far the most watered-down “IPA” I’ve had to date. Tried to give this one the benefit of the doubt…(the only saving grace for the money spent is the 6.9% ABV)

SDalkoholic (2089) - Linda Vista, California, USA - JUL 1, 2013
Bottle from Vons: Appeared as a light watered down golden honey liquid and created a thick foam of head. Aroma is faint and has no available smells to be picked up other than some minor floral notes of hops. The drink is bland and hasn’t much of a flavor other than some weak hops and malts barely holding this together to be classified as an IPA style. Wonder how terrible the pale ale will taste?

Simply put, this is not a good IPA. It’s not even a good beer. I’ve been on a tight budget of late and thought I would treat myself $6.99 six-pac. I should’ve stuck with my $3.99 Rolling Rock. It was that bad.

mjteeters (37) - Issaquah, Washington, USA - JUN 8, 2013
Six-pack from grocery. Nice dark golden pour with an off-white head. Minimal nose, with hints of citrus and bread. A touch bitter to taste but not much of a traditional IPA "flavor". I was looking for more "hops" to taste and aftertaste. The beer is okay.

bytemesis (2610) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - APR 2, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear amber with a medium creamy off white head, decent lacing. Aroma is pine, urine, sweat socks, old leather, aluminum foil. Flavor is about the same, artificial and not pleasant. Metallic. Buy a Budweiser before drinking this.
