Barepaw? go back to the jungle. The idea of IPA is bitterness. This is about as mild as an IPA gets. Excellent stank..solid beer smell. She give good froathy head...orange brown with hints of some of some of the good stuff floating around in the bottle.

It's not the greatest IPA I've tried. It's almost as if they are trying to hard to get the bitter IPA flavor. It cheapens the flavor.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Amber and clear with a medium but long lasting head. The aroma is floral with a hint of citrus, intense and complex almost nothing but hops in the nose at first but just a little bit of malt comes through after a few swallows. The flavor starts out as a hop monster but mellows and the malt balances out nicely at the end. A nice clean finish

Bottle. A hazy orange gold color with a foamy white head. Hoppy, fruity, and a little spicey in the nose. Somewhat sweet which hides the hop bite but you get the bitter aftertaste. I nice mellow easy drinkin' IPA.

First I love the bottle art. Upon opening it smells of a floral arrangement. Citrusy and hoppy, nicely rounded out flavor, not as hoppy as I prefer an IPA to be. But all in all very enjoyable to drink and could see myself doing just that over and over again.

Classic looking IPA. Pours with a 1/4" head which has not receded. Light citrus aroma and flavor. I was hoping for a bigger IPA from where big IPA’s are the norm. A little disappointed.

Citrus aroma with some roasted malts. Flavour more sweet, a bit nutty, some apple, does not lead into the strongly bitter finish very well. Perfectly carbonated.

light amber in color, aroma is sweet, some malt, nutty, is nice with the floral hops Initially hoppy, malt flavors linger over the palate, the hop finish diminishes slowly. has a nice creamy character as well

Good all-around IPA, athough a bit unbalanced. The hops taste great and are nicely bitter, but there is a lack of malt here that is leaving the beer rather incomplete. I had this on tap at Rico’s in Pullman, WA and it was probably the best beer there for steady drinking though.
