UPDATED: OCT 21, 2012 12oz bottle: pours golden brown with decent off white head, aroma has decent amount of hops, slightly stale. Taste is not a real hoppy IPA, slightly stale, nothing great.

Clear amber with a thin white head. Aromas of caramel, dough, light resinous hop, and yeasty. Taste is sweet and light on the bitterness for an ipa, wouldnít know it was an ipa if it werenít for the label. Okay.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a pure liquid gold with a small white head mostly dissipating. Nose is equal parts malt and hops. Very creamy on the palate, this beer has a well balanced flavor of medium roasted malts and Cascade hops that is not overly bitter or hoppy, especially for an IPA. A good companion to deli sandwiches or with nuts.

IPA light? Probably for someone that does not like real IPAís bitter hoppyness. Besides that - a decent beer.

0.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 1/20
UPDATED: JUN 22, 2014 Where are the hops? Itís one thing to make an IPA with a sweet malt balance but itís quite another to make one that willfully skimps on the hops. This is nothing more than an attempt to water down a beer for the masses. A beer thatís supposed to be hoppy by its very nature has been toned down for the average consumer. This is an "IPA" without any balls.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 oz bottle. This beer is a horrible example of an IPA! Should be labeled as cheap American Schwill. Aroma is of hay, leather and something sour I canít describe. Pours a nice dark yellow with a thick head which is its only redeeming quality. Taste is salty, bitter and not fun to drink. Palate is harsh, not fun to drink. Overall this is not fun to drink; should have known with the 6.99 price point.

This is not bad. It has all the characteristics of a descent IPA. Only lacking ever so slightly in bitterness. Would have liked just a tad bit more bit.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Clear copper color with a very short white head. Large bubbles and not really any bubbles floating to the top. Does not seem well carbonated to me. Head fades fast almost instantly. Aroma is slightly skunky, evergreen. Taste is bitter but nothing special here to back it up. Finishes clean. I am not getting any huge hop flavor here. Drinkable.
