Dacrza (788) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - JUL 17, 2013
Date tasted: July 13, 2013 at Bea McNally’s in Hackettstown, NJ... Glassware: pint... Occasion: celebrating a good round (aesthetics more than scores) of golf with bro Jer and Matt....Appearance: dark amber body; slow/low effervescence; thick white head that holds a finger solidly... Aroma: bright, sprucey hops; a backbone of mellow malts keeps the profile a bit unbalanced... Palate: full-bodied, effectively working the whole mouth--a good prelude for a spicy nacho appetizer...Taste: malts are in full effect, belying the IPA style this purports to be--almost an ESB underlying its hoppy flash; the pale hops build their intensity as the glass drain... Overall: aside from Matt’s sarcasm concerning the language of the beer rating world--or just me--the drinking experience was a smooth, fitting finish to a good day of golfing, with a solid strength; not so EVIL as it is EVOLVED, a pleasantly drinkable beer that subtly pushes its 6%ABV...only reservation is that it doesn’t consistently present as an India pale ale....

A golden ipa with a thick frothy lacing white head. In aroma, light biscuit malt with grassy floral hops, restrained, OK. In mouth, a nice biscuit malt with grassy floral hops, light grapefruit pulp, decent. On tap at Molly Malloys.

Pour from bottle - light amber with small head that fades quickly with fair lacing. Earthy aromas dominate, a little dank, some citrus and herbal notes in background. Taste is kind of dank with biscuit and a little lemony citrus on short bittering finish. Mouthfeel is light with a long finish that has hints of chemicals. I’m not sure if the strange flavors hide a good beer or cover up a mediocre one.

kirk36 (214) - Peabody, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 26, 2015
Strong in the category. Holds the taste and the smell. Nothing special about it but it is worth the taste. I am sure first time IPA lovers can buy this and feel special. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Meh. Nothing special here. If there is nothing else around it’s okay. Certainly not worth craft beer prices. Aroma is meh citrus...taste is meh citrus + malt... finish is meh...crush it and be done...the trash truck driver in our neighborhood loves honking his truck’s horn...

Pours a hazy gold. Has a citrus, hop, grain and pine aroma. A bit grainer than expected with little citrus hops. A bitter malty aftertaste

nimbleprop (7006) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 13, 2015
On tap at Black Squirrel’s NKOTB event pours a clear orange with a ring of white head. Nose has orange, soap, heavy grass, heavy pith. Flavor is harsh, overly pithy, a touch industrial, a faux sweetness too. Astringent finish. This needs work.

Clear, golden color. An off white head that remains. Complex, sweet scent. Some grapefruit hops but not too overwhelming. Some sweetness.

PhillyCraft (5229) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 3, 2015
On tap at Bainridge. Pours brownish gold with small to medium white head . Aromas are rye, pine, ash, light copper. Flavor is dry and bitter with a good bit of carbonation to it. Nothing special about this offering but it’s not as bad as the ticks imo. Drank this with some bubblegum and blueberry Martian juice and wasn’t too terrible...just bad. Cheers
