(12 ounce bottle - shaker glass) Malt flavor is of a straw flavor like the macrobrews. Not alot of flavor. Medium carbonation. Not a good beer.

Light copper pour, very thin off white head. Faint whiff of hops on nose. Bittersweet...not a good sign for an IPA. Middle is a little soapy, some caramel, mostly flat. Finish finds a little bitterness.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle with an expiration date of Dec 14. This is a nice looking beer anyway with its medium amber color and modest cream colored head. Aroma of toasted biscuit and earthy hops but nothing memorable. Medium texture. The taste has a decent enough sweetness balanced with the earthy hop note but the hops don’t blow things away considering this is an IPA. Not sure if they were supposed to. But it is very easy to drink and sessionable.

Haslinger (909) - The World of Beer, Texas, USA - NOV 27, 2013
12 ounce bottle from Trader Joes, pours a hazy copper with a frothy head, smells like sweet malt, taste is a caramel malt with slight hops bitterness in the finish, not great

Pours deep gold into a shaker. White head with excellent retention recedes to coat surface. Candy corn and toffee aromas. Dry with sour candy corn upfront turning to stale ripened tropical fruit in the medium length finish.

Bottle 6pack from trader joes. Decent ipa - mild nose with a little too much malt. Needs more hops

Picked it up at Trader Joe’s in Albuquerque, N.M. Poured from a bottle into a small glass (maybe eight ounces) that I had in the hotel room in Albuquerque, N.M. on April 21. Color was copper with lots of bubbles initially. About a finger of head. Bubbly white lacing on the top that stayed for a while. Some sporadic wet film on the sides. Smelled of caramel malts. Syrupy, iced tea, rye. Tasted pretty close the smell. Caramel, nuts, rye, syrupy. Just seemed really fake. Medium body. Creamy texture. Above average carbonation. Syrupy, malty finish. Never really got into this beer. I’d never try it again. Kind of reminded me of a homeless man’s Newcastle.

This is a very unimpressive beer. I’d agree with another person when they say tastes more like a pale ale then an IPA. For an IPA I would expect at least some hoppy flavor, and I tried and I tried but there’s nothing there.

12oz bottle. Medium amber in color with a small off-white head. The aroma is bready with caramel and earthy and fruity hops. More like a pale ale than an IPA from the aroma. The flavor too is on the malty side. Caramel and toast with indistinct fruits and earthy tones. Medium-bodied with a lack of hop resins and average carbonation. Definitely east coast style and then some. Somewhat tasty, but too high of a malt:hop ratio to be called an IPA.

12 oz bottle from sherm1016....not sure original source but I suspect Phillie area....beer with an identity crisis...says its an IPA but taste says pale ale...maybe...definitely lacks the hoppy nose and taste of an IPA....it is roughly seven months old...bottled in April 11 so it may have just lost the oomph....not an even ’good’ IPA...sorry
