Straw colored pour. White medium head and a little lacing. West coast hop aroma. Hop aroma is not quite as strong in flavor. Caramel malt flavors come through a bit more.

Clear orange amber; no aroma; Flava is light but certainly hoppy per style; not much in the finish and is light enuff to slam afew six packs

Masquerading as craft beer on tap at 8th Street Ale House. Amber with a thin tan head. Aroma of caramel and floral hops. Taste is earthy and grainy with caramel and mild bitterness. Kinda ho-hum.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draft at Park East. How do the beers keep getting worse here?? Poured a good looking super clear copper with rising effervescence and a smaller mostly white slightly foamy head. Aroma is metallic, wet bread, some off citrus notes. Medium bodied with stronger astringent carbonation and a quick fading aftertaste. Flavor is just as bad as the body, really nothing going on other then some cereal grains and perhaps a touch of citrus rind that sat in rust briefly. This is not a good IPA.

I give this a solid 3. It’s by no means an IPA. Don’t even begin to think it is. However, I can’t go as far as to say it tastes bad either. Heck I paid $1 a bottle for this stuff. Its certainly entirely inoffensive. It tastes more like a lager than an ale really. Really big grainy bread flavor up front with a light hop flavor on the back end. I’d choose this over just about anything in my local grocery stores limited selection. If you’re drinking on a budget you could be doing a heck of a lot worse. That’s for sure.

Pours a clear gold with a thin, white head that quickly fades. Aroma is subtly foral. Only slightly effervescent -- but not flat -- mouthfeel. Subtle, balanced taste -- not overly hoppy as the style might suggest. A little weak for an IPA, but not bad overall.

12oz bottle. Pours a coppery color with weak white head. Citrusy hop aroma along with a bit of caramel malt. Spicy hop flavor balanced by some malty sweetness. Light to medium bodied with a slightly bitter finish. Average.
