2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. This is harsh and astringent. Grainy, husky, very little hops character for an IPA. The hops are grassy and herbal. Some alcohol heat in the finish.

3.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
I have had three awful beers today. This better redeem things. Appearance: beautiful! Huge fluffy finger-length head that lasts on and on and leaves lots of fluffy lacing. 5! If nothing else, I can at least admire this one’s look. Smell: a little harsh. Lemon zest, pine, sharp. Citrus. Taste: lemon zest, citrus, bitter. Bitterness blends in with the malts at the end for a great mix and powerful, memorable finish. The palate is also exquisite - mouthfeel is rich and complete without feeling overly full. Very nice. Thank goodness - I thought I made my worst beer run ever. Well, I still probably did, but at least it wasn’t a total loss. This is actually one of the better IPAs I’ve had, other than the aroma.

Pour is a clear amber with a average white head. Aroma is a nice hop with a little caramel malt. Flavor is again a decent hop with a little sticky malt in the backround. A decent IPA but also nothing extraordinary.

UPDATED: JUN 7, 2014 Pours clear gold with a couple inches of white head. Aroma is light pine, light citrus. Taste is earthy, resin, mild bitterness. Body is very thin, lacking in carbonation. Overall there are no off flavors or aromas, just nothing very noteworthy whatsoever. Decent at best.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
In short: A low-profile american pale ale labelled as an IPA.
How: Bottle 12oz, consumed relatively fresh a few weeks after purchase.
The look: Clear pale golden body topped by a small off-white head leaving some lacings on the glass.
In long: Nose of medium intensity is citrusy hops with light piney notes. The fruity aroma has a nice freshness quality but lacks oomph. Typical clean mouthfeel with medium body and medium carbonation. Taste offers a frail semi-sweet malt backbone with mild caramel and some pastry. A moderate amount of fruity hops with a character sitting in between fresh citrus fruits and dried fruits. Light off-putting vegetable notes. Bitterness of medium intensity with a little citric sharpness. Piney notes in the comeback. Not a hop-bomb and certainly not a malt bomb either, this is a low-profile well balanced beer that most breweries would label as an APA. Could have been a decent generic american pale ale but the light vegetable notes bring it down to a below average take on the style. If actual stormchasers were as bold as this Stormchaser Summer IPA, then stormchasers would be people who sometimes go outside on a cloudy day without an umbrella.

Orangeish-amber colored pour. Small white head. Plenty of lacing on the glass. Big aroma of oranges and hops. A slight dankyness to it. Bitter on the tongue up front, followed up by a bit of malt. Very subdued hops, but very good tasting beer.
