12 oz bottle shared with the group. Pours a clear dark golden color with a small white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet malts, bread, grass and faded old hops. A bit disappointing especially if this was fresh.

BrettTaylor (393) - Radford, Virginia, USA - JUL 25, 2013
Poured from bottle into plastic cup at a local minor league game. Poured a light copper color. A bit of a hop on the nose (citrus, maybe lemon). Tastes a little sweet. Was refreshing on a arm night at the ball game but nothing really stood out. Certainly not as hoppy in aroma or taste as I would expect from an IPA.

Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a clear copper color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate soft hop and sweet malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.
