An average ipa. Very hoppy with a bitter aftertaste. Not bad for a craft beer but not one I woul get again.

Carbonation is the most apparent tasting note in this bland IPA- the packaging is the strongest feature. The bottle design is simple and cool, but the beer doesnít live up to the neat logos.

Had it at the Chicago Craft Beer Festival 6/22/13. Clear amber hue with light lacing and head and a hop bitter taste.

Draft at Chicago Hyatt regency. Doesnít smell like much. Maybe a little hop. Taste is very mild and flat. Not very good.

Very sweet and fruity aroma. Cloudy rust color. Medium carbonation. Tastes like a dubbel and not like an ipa. No noticeable hops. As a dubbel I would probably give it a better score.

This is a middling example of a beer. . . I canít call it bad, and nothing really fails in it, but nor can I call it a true IPA, or really recommend it.
Agree with many of the other comments that the more pronounced flavors are actually malt / barley. It has a very "pilsner" look and taste to it, which is something I really donít like in IPAs (fine in pilsners!).
The dry booziness gives a clean finish, but thereís just not anything about this I can really recommend. Iíll save the rest of my 6 pack for friends who lament they canít appreciate IPAs, as theyíll be able to drink it without spraining a taste bud.

UPDATED: APR 14, 2013 This beer sucks. Its not an IPA as far as I am concerned. Its another Minhas brew, which I cannot believe how bad everything they make sucks. There is absolutely no hop presence, just an artificial and "twangy" taste and a sticky mouth feel. Horrible, dont buy even just to try it.. it sucks

I donít see where the Ipa is in this. Its very light. Not hoppy and no cirtus flavor. Its like an extremely watered down ipa. It poured a nice thick heaf but thats about all. I wouldnt reccomend this.

Sweet and fruity. There's not a whole lot of hop flavors that come through on this... practically none of the dry bitter finish you'd expect. It's not a bad tasting beer; it's just not a very good IPA.

Hopothesis, I expected a lot out of you and all I was left with was a dry mouth and a the question of "whereís the hops". I generally donít care for malty IPAís but all and all this beer isnít bad tasting. I would say give it a try, but donít commit to a full six pack at first.
