3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle dated Dec 31-12. I am drinking this several months beyond that. It pours medium golden-amber with a modest off-white head that slowly diminishes. The aroma is subtle with caramel and pale malts and low hop notes. The body is medium. The taste has a slightly more hop punch than the nose suggests but the caramel malts are also noted. I like my IPAís milder and this could fir the bill for everyday drinking.

Amber. Medium head. Aroma: Floral, earth. Flavor: Floral, bread, earthy hops. Bitter-sweet finish. NOT IPA!
It seems more like an Amber Ale and not too bad but an IPA? Only if you get stoned on aspirin...

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
12 oz bottle- Must be one of the worst IPAs i have had. It reminds me of a product that a macro brew would put together to give the impression of legitimacy. Soury wheat flavor. Frothy white head, light yellow. Med bitterness throughout 2.5 BD

Bottle. Very standard feeling beer. Clear, gold, light head. Hop taste, not strong but rather mild. Easy drinking IPA for those who like that style.

I picked this just because I like to try as many IPA s as I can. Very weak all around. Not a bad beer , just not a craft beer. I bet this would be just fine with some hot wings though.

The aroma is citrus, caramel, weak and bland. The appearance is amber, white head. The flavor is like the aroma, not particularly flavorful. Medium in body. Weak pine on the finsh. Not especially good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Straightforward IPA moderate citrus and resin hop nose and flavors, caramel bread malts, semi-dry finish leaning to bitter, but mostly balanced. Indistinct, clean, straight to the point.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle pours with a clear deep copper body that supports an off white head of foam. The aroma offers up sugary malt sweetened tangerine and orange peel notes as well as some citrus gummy bears. The taste has an odd sweet nutty sort of lager-y note to it mixing with soft sugar sweetened citrus hops. It gets to tepid levels of citrus hop bitterness to midway but those "hop" notes quickly fade as malts surge forward into the finish. Not sure Iíd try this again unless it was free as the malts and bits of hops arenít coming together too well.

Bottle @ home, courtesy of jcnielsen. Thanks Jetson! Pours a hazy burnt orange appearance with an off white head. Earthy, herbal, woody, grassy hoppy, biscuity aroma. A bit tangy, lightly fruity, chewy cracker, pale malty, herbal, grassy flavor. Bleh.
