Its a little bit of good, but mostly just is content with being a supermarket brand ipa.

2.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle. Pours a warm orange with a thick foamy head that lasts a while. Aroma light hops. Unusually sweet, caramel and bright flavor propelled by a medium body. A little too sweet for my tastes.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Not good enough to be called a middle-of-the-road IPA. It’s not a bad beer, but IMHO it is too malty and lacking in hops.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Pretty dreadful. Dank, slightly sweet nose. Very biting flavor with not much to enjoy - mostly a hard alcoholic start with a sweeter ending with a little bit of pine. Very fizzy on the tongue.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle (courtesy of Headbanger) poured into a Shaker at 40°. Color of honey with mellow carbonation and a rocky head. Aroma is a light hop scent with a back note of malt. It has a lighter medium body with a crisp mouth feel. Flavor is light malt showing some caramel sweetness, then a little pine, yeast and grass. After taste has a sweet citrus feel. Overall its not the best, drinkable but the flavors don’t fit right.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours cloudy amber with a fully receding white head. Notes of resinous piney hops, lightly sweet. Underwhelming.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Departmental picnic tick. Thanks, colleague! Filmy dank orange pour with a medium, almost depressed looking carbonation. Heady, super sweet nose augurs poorly. Harshly bitter at one moment, overly sweet and syrupy the next. A misfire in more than one way.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle to pint glass
Caramel malt, perfume, celery, pine, orange and resin. Clear amber with light particulates and a thick diminishing white head. Peppery and slightly sour with a slightly skunky back if the tongue bitterness on the finish. Light body, thin and chalky.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours copper with an off-white head. Aroma of light citrusy hops plus some pale and light caramel malts. Flavor the same. Average texture. Not the best IPA.
