3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A new-one-to-me IPA. A buddy had a sixer of this in his fridge the other day. As a sucker for all things-IPA, I grabbed one. Poured into a pint glass.
Pours a translucent pale orange with a small white cap of foam on top. Good sticky lace on glass. Fresh hoppy aroma, some citrus notes, grass. Not sharp in any way.
Crisp, clean feel. Refreshing. This one is easy to drink. Mild hop bitterness makes this one up. This is definitely not one that’ll scald the palate. Some sweet tangerine, honeysuckle. Easy drinking. This one won’t compete with the big trendy IPAs out there, but it has its place. Sometimes all I want is a mildly bitter beer that I can have a few of, and this one fits the bill perfectly. A good ’gateway’ IPA for the curious.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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...

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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 wouldn’t really call this an IPA for my taste, more of a lager to me. Overall not one i would buy again.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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)

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.
