Brilliant dark gold cold with ivory head . Faint pine, floral, vegetal hop aromas. Mildly hoppy, lightly bitter pine, floral flavors on a grainy pale malt base brew--better than no ipa

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)

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Golden yellow with a white head. There really isn’t much aroma other than a hint of grain and some grass. Not impressive. The flavor is unfortunately more of the same. I get some grass and grain as well as some soap and a bit of light pine and citrus. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Not a good beer at all.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Pours a golden color with a light white head. The nose is earthy with some light citrusy hops and a light pale malt note. The flavor is medium bodied, middle-of-the-road hops in the flavor. Fairly low key as far as west coast IPAs go.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Fr0m the c0mmercial descripti0n: "Now that spoilage isn’t as big a problem, we’ve eased up on the hoppiness just a hair to let the caramel malts shine through." ?!? It’s the 21st Century, f0lk. IPAs are ab0ut the h0ps, n0t the caramel! This pale, clear amber brew is even light 0n the caramel in the n0se, with an even fainter am0unt 0f zest and mayhaps s0me grapefruit. The weak flav0r relects what can be garnered fr0m the ar0ma, with a m0derate am0unt 0f bitterness. Meh. And I’ve never used that "w0rd" bef0re.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Wilmington Island, Ga - Kroger Supermarket - 12 oz bottle. Light copper pour, thin white head. Aroma is pretty much neutral, faint metallic industrial aromas. Flavor is standard budget IPA, some nuttiness, a bit of hard candy sweetness. some breadiness, a faint trace of citrus bitterness. Mouthfeel is thick enough, Not writing home about this one.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft to pint. Looks decent; malty though. A hazy brownish orange with foamy off-white head that dissipates into sticky lacing. Smells and tastes of mild hops and caramel malt. Average on the palate. A subpar, underhopped IPA.

Bottle courtesy of my friend Noel - thanks! Aroma is sweet with light caramel and toasted malt. Taste is soft hops, sweet malt, grains and grass. Body is light-medium with a moderate carbonation. Ends with more caramel, toasted malt and light grassy notes.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
A clear amber brew with a thin white head. The nose is sweet apples and leather. There is also some musk and flowers. The taste is like light grapefruit and peanuts. There is also plenty of wood and caramel. Bits of spice in the finish. A light and boring IPA.
