Bebum (337) - - DEC 14, 2014
Light amber with citrine reflections, clear, lasting head with good lacing. Full body, silky texture, bright mouthfeel, good carbonation, avg length. Bittersweet, palate cleansing acidity that makes it a good pair to rich food, Citrus, richly malty, complex hoppy flavors, pleasant and satisfying IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kevinator (1060) - The Colony, Texas, USA - NOV 28, 2014
Pretty average. Mild hop aroma. Copper and golden color with a white head. Medium to light palate with big carbonation. Medium to mild hop bitterness up front with an decent malt background. Would I choose their over a bland beer? Of course, but this is still a middle-of-the-road beer.

UPDATED: DEC 19, 2014 It’s a little better on tap . Good representation of an English style IPA and a nice change of pace. Malty, moderate hop aromas and bitterness. Definitely can be a session ale. Goes well with savory comfort foods. Originally rated this lower but the bottle was old. Had a fresher bottle and have to admit I was wrong. Also a good value.
