Iím a IPA lover and this beer made me realize that. Its not as strong as the other IPAís Iíve had but thats okay cuz with this one I had a few and didínt get sick of it. Iím a weirdo so you can call me that when i say the burps from this beer tasted yummy and licking the resin of this beer off my lips was good too. Not a easy beer to find in my areas

Medium orange body. Sweet aroma, and quite malty for an IPA. The flavor, though is the expected hoppy, and it is also toasty and roasty. It is a little bit thin for an IPA, though, and it doesnít really pack a punch like a prefer with my IPAís. Overall, quite average, but I imagine this would be a lot better on draught.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is quite a fruity IPA, from the aroma of citrus and berries, to the strawberry color, to the abundant flavors of strawberries, cherries (do I detect a hint of raspberry?) - quite unique and odd - moderate hops and a strong, biscuit-like malt backbone for the fruit flavors to play off of - a unique experience - expect a malty ESB rather than an IPA, though.

Flowery hops, light toasted malt, candi sugar and grassines sin the noise. I should have poured this more carefully - lots of floaties. Flavor is toasted malt at first, sharp bitterness follows on the the back of my tounge, but its got a sweet, grassy finish.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz Bottle: Slight hoppy aroma, but not too much to speak of. Dark copper/brown color. Lots of floaters! Nice light colored head that lasted. Good lacing. Flavor much like an English IPA (true to style). Started off hoppy, but was also a bit sweet. Easy to drink. Overall, a pretty good IPA, but I prefer more of an APA style with more bitterness.

Hoppy flavor, kinda sweet, not a bad IPA, not the best, but its worth a try.

Draft @ The Cannery, San Francisco, CA. Amber. Good hop nose and flavor. Quite drinkable. A bit too one dimensional.

1.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
This one is truly disgusting, I have never tasted anything more metallic. I felt like I was drinking a bottle of my own cold blood. Needless to say, I let this stuff sit in my fridge and gave it to people who came over. Iíd take Pabst, Olympia.... well, Iíd pretty much take ANYTHING over this... except for Rainier Ale, which gets the award as the most horrifically disgusting thing Iíve ever had to drink.

Sweet and toasty malt aroma with a citric hop undertone. Sweet and malty with some caramel upfrotn. Some fruit and hops in the finish. Too heavy on the malts for an IPA

A middle upper tier west coast IPA. A bit sweet for me. Hoppiness is dominate from nose to finish. Nothing bad here, but thereís better to be had out there. Best when chilled.
