Medium gold color, 3/4 inch head lasted halfway thru, good lacing. Moderately hopped and left a long thin hop taste. Initially seemed hoppier, but that may have been due to a slight lack of malt. Refreshing, though

UPDATED: DEC 24, 2013 Not that fan of the floral aroma. Looks very nice. Not that much taste. No aftertaste. Edit: had this again. More pleasant than previously described.

Bottle to glass at room temp. Slight citrus smell and slight hoppy taste, but overall quite a bland beer.

One of my favorite IPA beer out-there, well balanced with a strong hop taste! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: DEC 22, 2013 Bottle. Piney aroma with hint of citrus. Taste is mild citrus, orange pineapple. Little bit of pine. Good flavour, little biterness. Good easy to drink ipa.

Had on tap at DFW. Pours a clear golden with a nice white head that dissipates. Aroma is mostly pine with some citrus. Flavor is clean and light. Flavorful but not bitter. Finishes very dry. Nice beer.

This tastes like an IPA we have back home in the land of crack smoking mayors called Keats. We also call it by its other name: Shit. And this too is pretty damn crappy. I would just call the style A as there’s nothing IPA about it. Swilled at a roadside Steak & Lube somewhere in Ohio. Confused why so many raters below me call it "weak" and "meh" & yet give it a score above 3.0.

Poured from draft, clear copper, grassy nose. Smooth on the palate with a slight hop bitter finish, grassy hop flavors with a mildly effervescent tongue ender.

bellco33 (286) - Willington, Connecticut, USA - NOV 22, 2013
Poured from bottle into pint glass: Pours golden with a two finger white head. Aroma floral and malty, taste is a bit sweet up front and then the hops kick in. It’s a little too malty for the amount of hops. Medium bodied and easy to drink, this is a good basic IPA. A little bitter on the finish.

Draft. Aroma is a fresh hoppy. Appearance is a bronze coloring with a frothy, white head. Taste is sweet then the hops come in, pretty lightly. I would have liked more. I actually think my burps after drinking it taste hoppier. Palate is a little bitter, but not bad for an ipa. Overall, a pretty weak ipa.... Could have been a lot better if they left more hops in
