COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Originally developed for British sailors stationed in India, IPAs were aggressively hopped to help prevent spoilage on long ocean voyages. Now that spoilage isn’t as big a problem, we’ve eased up on the hoppiness just a hair to let the caramel malts shine through. It’s a big beer with big flavor that really lets you appreciate hops in all their glory.

Aroma is mild more like citrus pale ale. Flavor is mild with very short lasting bitterness.

This beer is great for college students who don't like the taste of beer. There is absolutely nothing to this beer except alcohol for high schoolers.get your shit together. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a clear amber gold. Thin off white head. Pine and caramel and some citrus on the nose. Flavor follows and is slightly sweet. Not a bad beer. Better than the ratings.

UPDATED: JUN 22, 2014 Where are the hops? It’s one thing to make an IPA with a sweet malt balance but it’s quite another to make one that willfully skimps on the hops. This is nothing more than an attempt to water down a beer for the masses. A beer that’s supposed to be hoppy by its very nature has been toned down for the average consumer. This is an "IPA" without any balls.

A bit of hops in the nose with some pine. Rubber band bitter with an astringent taste. Dry with a short finish.

BVery (6980) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - DEC 21, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2013 Bottle. Light orange pour with a white head. Pale caramel malt and stale hops on the nose. Lighter palate that is somewhat crisp. Pretty much a letdown.

Haslinger (865) - The World of Beer, Texas, USA - NOV 27, 2013
12 ounce bottle scored from a cooler at a party, not too shabby, hint of floral hops with some citrus in the finish, not really much of an IPA but very quaffable beer

firemarshal (178) - North Carolina, USA - NOV 25, 2013
Bottle into shaker. Slightly cloudy amber with small off-white head. Aroma has some hops, lightly floral, honey, candy. Malty and a tiny bit spicy up front and then a total letdown for the finish. Bland. I should have known when I discovered it was a twist off...

blackmurder (226) - sadf, Hawaii, USA - NOV 21, 2013
A very decent beer at a decent price that falls short of being an IPA. It tastes very light, with only a hint of floral hops. However it is easy to throw a few down the gullet and for the price what do you expect? A very insipid IPA, I felt like I was drinking a pilsner.

Peter_L (892) - SWEDEN - NOV 19, 2013
Flaska köpt på Hawaii. Gåva från vän. Bärnstensfärgad vätska med lågt skum. Dofter av ananas, citrus och lite halm. Svag beska. Halvtorr munkänsla. Kort eftersmak.
