3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma of grapefruit and grass. Nice golden orange color that is approximately what I expect every IPA to look like. Straightforward bitter with some butter and gravel mixed in. Biting and mildly cloying. It’s sessionable without losing the edge completely. Better than I expected. Must go back and compare to Full Sail’s own IPA.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is grassy hops and what can’t be described as anything other than water. The flavor is mild citrus/grapefruit, fruit and a mildly bitter finish.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This was the cheapest 6-pack of bottled IPA I found at my favorite workingman’s liquor store yesterday ($5.99) so I had to try it. Inoffensive and worth the price. Pours a clear orange with a tiny white head and no lacing. Notihing much to smell. Aroma has faint buttery/caramel malts and a bit of floral hops. Tastes sweet at first with a slightly bitter finish. Medium body and average carbonation. I wouldn’t call this an IPA, but it succeeds as a cheap English Pale Ale.

Bottle. Pours a light amber color with a small head. Little bit of hoppiness to the nose, but not much. Not a lot of taste to the beer, but there is a little bit of hop taste in there as well.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bought for $1.10. Not expecting much. Here goes. Not a bad aroma, can smell some hops. Color is clear, golden. Nice head. Taste is about what I expected, kind of bland, not much taste. Does not even taste like a pale ale. Although for a $1.10 OTD I might buy again.

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2012 Light copper medium gold.Some short head.light lacing.Poured into a Piraat tulip glass.
Aroma is somewhat hoppy,decent and more than expected.
Taste is good mild but fairly hoppy,buttery carmel malts,very smooth and slick,solid bitter. A bit more buttery like Shipyards than I like ipa’s but decent. Fair price and better than I expected.Ok ipa.

Poured golden in color with a touch of amber. Small head quickly diminished to a lingering white band of bubbles around the glass. Aroma of piney, and floral hops. Tastes of mild hop bitterness, an underlying mild caramel sweetness

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured from 12oz bottle, pours a clear golden with a bubbly white head and some lacing, aroma was a mixture of soap with a little bit of citrus, older hops are coming through, might be an older bottle, the flavor has more of a malty front end with a slight hop finish, if tasting blind I wouldn’t put in the ipa style, not bad for a $6 six pack but nothing I would buy again.
