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 isnít as big a problem, weíve eased up on the hoppiness just a hair to let the caramel malts shine through. Itís a big beer with big flavor that really lets you appreciate hops in all their glory.

Patrickctenchi (4107) - Coxís Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - OCT 13, 2012
Pours clear amber with a silky, light tan head. Scent is faint....caramel, bread, grass. Taste is primarily grassy hops....very low bitterness. While the flavour is basically pleasant, it displays absolutely no aggression in itís hops.... Maybe the most benign IPA ever produced.

rougeau13 (2027) - Richmond, Texas, USA - OCT 13, 2012
Very pale, dingy, clear amber with a small off-white head. Aroma of bready and caramel malt, and some grassy and citrus hops. Malty flavor, lightly sweet, and very lightly bitter. Decent beer, weak IPA.

demitriustown (1090) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - OCT 11, 2012
12 oz bottle: Aroma has got a nice medium hop characteristic, fruity, pine, and some faint roasted toasted malt backing. Appearance is golden with a thin white head that lingers. Taste has got a decent hop characteristic, more of a mild IPA with a subtle malt backing. Palate is medium to low carbonation in the mouth, and an aftertaste of lingering hoppiness. Overall, An Average IPA nothing special, maybe a little below average. Cheers!

dwaggs2 (1297) - Jefferson City, Missouri, USA - OCT 9, 2012
Bottle. Poured a weaker amber color with a very minimal head. Head was gone rather quick. Aroma was mild pines, spruce, and hops. Flavor was some grapefruit, grass and citrus. Very thin and watery body. Very poor for an ipa.

rollinsr (388) - Atlanta, GEORGIA - OCT 9, 2012
Pours amber with a finger of white head. Aroma is a light mixteure of hops and yeast. Taste is mostly just bitter. There is a little bit of sweetness but mostly all I get are off-flavors. This beer has a glassy and rubbery feel to it.

drjay44 (2737) - Salida, Colorado, USA - OCT 8, 2012
12 oz. bottle. Pours a medium white head, with some lacing, over a clear, light amber (SRM 8) body......nose is light pine, toffee/caramel hints.....taste is light pine, hints of grapefruit, light toffee/caramel......mouth feel light, carbonation makes a fizzy mouthful. This falls into the Pale, Ale IPA styles, but "easing up on the hoppiness just a hair" pretty much takes it out of the IPA category, because the aromatic hop left with the bitterness. They could have used more Noble hops to cut the bitterness, but leave the aromas. This is a pretty uninteresting beer. BJCP 6/3/10/4/6.

Chudwick (2215) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - OCT 8, 2012
12oz bottle - pours light caramel with plenty of off-white head and decent lacing. Nose is caramel, spruce and citrus. Flavor adds grass. Moderately bitter with some sweetness. Light to medium body. Easy to drink. Fairly boring for the style, but quite drinkable.

garrison (789) - Cin. city, Ohio, USA - OCT 8, 2012
Alright, I purchased this at the Kenard Avenue Krogers in Cincinnati, Ohio - Alright, this is not a bad beer, but itís really tame for an IPA. Okay, it pours a light golden hued brew with the requsite piney citrus aroma, but that quality was really turned down in this beerís flavor, although itís still there. Still, it was cheap. Meh.

davidajensen (206) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 7, 2012
This beer is just a little lifeless. The aroma is muted and the taste is flat. There is a taste of citrus and a slightly oily lacing. The color is light. The hops just donít have any life.
