Decent golden colored ipa with frothy head. Standard for the style. This should be the basline minimum flavor profile for IPAs. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

arminjewell (9262) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - FEB 21, 2015
Pour on tap at the brewery, hazy golden orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, butter, toffee, hints of earth, floral notes into a bit of grain. Taste is a mix of biscuit, bread, some caramel, butter, into a bit of floral, slight yeast, finishing slightly bitter.

Pailhead (6426) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - JAN 2, 2015
On tap: The aroma consists of butterscotch, caramel, and florals. It’s a transparent golden-orange with a small white head that fades to a thick film. There is a good amount of soapy lacing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with moderate butterscotch with a touch of caramel and fruit. The finish has light florals with a touch of citrus. It’s light-medium bodied with soft carbonation and mouthfeel.

Art (3150) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 29, 2013
Decent IPA. On cask so slightly flat. A bit thin of a beer so not the most amazing. Weak on the hops. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

slimchill (1044) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAY 4, 2012
Draught. Weird aroma for the style. Malt actually dominates with vague hop character. Bright clear orange with little head but good lacing. Citrus and spice flavors, weird sweetness and a soft but astringent finish. Lacks crispness and carbonation for style.

patrick767 (4010) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - JUL 22, 2011
cask at the brewpub - Pours clear gold with a lasting head. It has a mild citrus hop aroma. The flavor has mild to moderate hops bitterness at most and is sweet for the style. The cask gives it the typical low, smooth carbonation. It’s medium bodied and the finish is lightly bitter.

hopscotch (10642) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 13, 2010
Draft… RBSG 2010… Mostly clear golden ale with a wispy, white head. Fantastic retention. Doesn’t really smell like an IPA. It just smells grainy… over-sparged or over-crushed pale malts, I guess. Light to medium-bodied with an astringent mouthfeel and expired carbonation. Plenty of bitterness in the flavor. Finishes grainy, bitter and lightly acidic. Double dry-hopped? The aroma tells a different story.
