3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Purchased from the Whole Foods Market Galleria in Brentwood. 12oz bottle. Pours filtered with a dark golden hue. Two fingers of billowing white head. Aromas of soggy malts and trace citrus candy hops with a bit of grapefruit and pine. Medium bodied with a mild malt backbone. Thereís a bitterness to the palate, but I cannot discern whether itís from the hops of the tingling effervescence. The hops are there, but they meld almost too well into the palate. The finish is dry with a grassy, piney hop flavor. Not terrible, but a little thin, even considering the decent abv. But it has a great price tag and since the palateís not too overt, it should be a crowd pleaser! Decent stuff.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a tall can into a pint glass light amber cloudy golden with a huge thick beige pillow top head.
Scent of caramel and very faint hop
Taste is straight up caramel malty sweet & a just a tad of bitterness at the end telling me that hops was involved but definitely no bite of grassy citrus pine like most IPAs
Carbonation is spot on with an excellent IPA feel to the tongue but why is this so sweet? Almost like the hops were an afterthought here.
Bought this tall boy can 4 pack at Whole Foods for just $5.99. For the price not a horrible brew but I just keep wondering where the hops made in this brew went???

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sporty tallboy can. Huge bone-colored head on a hazy, honey gold brew. I liked the aroma - more of a UK style IPA than I was expecting and you can really pick up the Goldings. Caramel and tangy up front, followed by kumquat and moderate astringency. The flavor didnít quite deliver on the promise of the aroma. The aftertaste has a ragged and astringent quality to it, with some buttery tones mixed in with the choppy hops. Slightly heavy mouthfeel to me. Whole Foods, Tallahassee.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
1 pint can from Whole Foods. Gold pour with huge fluffy white-ish head. Aroma is sweet grapefruit, resin, spice, pine. Tastes are sweet caramel and floral bitter. Grassy, pine, metallic. Thin medicinal palate. Not completely horrible, but close... something a off-putting in the taste that I canít put my finger on.

This can definitely be a session beer. Easy to drink and not too hoppy. Exactly how I like my IPAís!

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clear edeep orange amber with a 1/2" head and light swirls of lace. The taste never makes it out of the gate - sweet n sour caramel malt is joined by an odd semi-hop bittering that does more to emphasize the malt than bring a balance to things. Not satisfying at all....in fact, one I wasnít interested in finishing. Not recommended.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
The disappointment started as soon as the can was cracked as it erupted all over the countertop like a volcano. A thick creamy off-white head is the only redeeming quality of this beer. No hop aroma. A dank earthy dirt flavor. Not even close to style.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle. Pours a clear, golden orange color with a frothy, white head that falls quickly. Smells of spicy hops and some zesty lemongrass notes, along with a bit of grain and caramel. Very herbal at first, with flavors of black tea, with a biscuit malt backbone. A little bit of pine bitterness in the finish. Medium bodied, crisp carbonation.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Got six of these as a gift. Opened one up after yard work on warm evening while grilling. Liked it more than its rating here, but not nearly as hoppy as most IPAs. More like a pale ale or even a lager. Very drinkable. Will open another. . Good warm weather or after workout beer for IPA drinkers.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 13/20
Copper color with a bit of white head. Bland aroma. Taste is just average with mostly malt character and a general lack of hop character.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can pour, brownish amber, pretty clear. Not bad of an aroma, little bit of malt and caramel. Yea but doesnít taste like an IPA at all, no bite, very weak. Disappointing.
