2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: APR 20, 2014 12 oz Bottle. The beer pours to a alight amber/orange color with a small white head. The aroma has caramel, resin, a little earthy. Thge taste is light in body with a malt forward front end flavor & virtually no hop bitterness on the finish. I wouldnâ€™t really call this an IPA for my taste, more of a lager to me. Overall not one i would buy again.

pours a golden copper color with a small white head. the aroma is very nice you can pick up the cascade hops. the taste is very good, you can pick up the hops but it is very well balanced and you can pick up some sweetness of the malt as well. this would be the perfect ipa for being just getting into craft beer because it is not too overpowering.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
bottle. Poured clear medium amber with an average beige head. Grassy hop aroma. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel with a tart dry finish. Earthy hop flavour, grapefruit citrus notes with a bit of roasted malt. A nice balanced beer, not overly dry.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Straight from the bottle at a friend’s party. Couldn’t assess the appearance. Minimal insight into the aroma. This beer is emblematic of those that made me think I didn’t like IPAs. Weak hoppy flavor, malt-forward, uninteresting. Not recommended.

Bottle. Very light golden color on this, delivers a decent little fuzzy head. Light and pleasantly quaffable, comes off with a bit more of a malty character than you’d expect for the label, bit starchy, too perhaps. Decent center of the scale pale ale. (#5298, 10/19/2013)

Watered down IPA. Got it at O’Charlies. So....I guess it is a macro lovers IPA? As a shirt of mine says, "Don’t Drink Pee" and this is not.

Bottle at home. Pours clear dark amber with a large, creamy off-white head, long retention with good lacing. Aroma is toast and nutty malt with earthy and minty hops, and pear esters. Flavor is moderate hops and bitterness with supporting malt and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap. This is to IPA what the Giants are to football this year: directionless, uninteresting, uninspiring and completely forgettable. Only problem I can see with that comparison is that the Giants might be able to improve a little.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 FL oz bottle from a shop in Zion in US. Clear light orange body with a white head. Malty aroma. Taste is bread, a little sweet, soft bitter finish. Strong carbonation. Not an IPA, but rather and pilsner. ***

Bottle at the South Carolina BBQ competition. Didn’t really see the color or detect an aroma because we drank it from the bottle. Taste is slightly peppery caramel. Not much to this one.
