I bought this b/c I really like their pils and b/c the guy at Grapes & Grains said they sell a ton of it. This is pretty much exactly as the description says. Strsightforward easy drinking balanced. IPA. Nothing special but still good.

Bottle at fassler hall OKC. Dark, hazy Amber pour, thin white head that fades quickly. Aroma is grain, malts, faint hops. Taste is malty, faint citrus hops, mild bitterness. Overly malty. Medium body, low carbonation. Average to below average.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours amber color. Thick tight foamy head. Cream color head.
Smells not so much citrusy. Smells caramel and earthy. Itís has a different something to the aroma. Itís odd, and I like it.
Tastes not quite like an IPA to me. Citrusy maybe. Boy, itís hard to describe it. Itís okay. Itís watery. Not very heavy in body, at least for the style.
Mouthfeel is true to an IPA, A little watery. Slightly chewy. The taste and mouthfeel are hard to tell apart. I canít describe how to rate the bitterness. Maybe itís the hops, but thereís something different about it.
Overall, itís pretty good. Iíd have to drink another one just to try to figure it out. But other than that, I wouldnít have it again.

Bottle in Tulsa. Light caramel aroma with a little bit of citrus. Pours caramel colored with a thin white head and no lacing. Starts with caramel flavor. Finishes smooth with light orange citrus flavors. Pretty good, but lacks any hoppiness that usually accompanies an ipa.

Hazy copper color, thin white head. Earthy aroma. Grassy taste upfront; bitter. Finishes with a dose of earthiness. Solid balance. Nice go-to IPA.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Painted Horse in Bartlesville, OK. Served in a pint glass, aroma of strong citrus/earthy hops and caramel malt. Taste adds notes of grass, kind of rosary, slight nuttiness with earthy/piney hop bitterness. Medium body, low-moderate carbonation, dry, creamy with lingering bitterness. Kind of harsh with earthy bitterness, alright.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Not much aroma. Earthy if anything. Limited head. Watery initial mouth feel. Flavor starts peppery and moves to a bitterness that is slightly metallic. Some coffee notes. Nothing like a West Coast IPA, this is more Pale Ale, like the evil tasting twin to a delicious Mirror Pond from Deschutes. Tastes like something went wrong but they decided to keg it anyway. Can not recommend.

Bottle split w/Travlr. Slightly hazy amber pour with a small head. Beef and Barley Campbellís Soup aroma (serious). Some caramel and burnt brown sugar. Doesnít smell super fresh. Taste is a bit more nimble. Crystal malt backbone. Some apricot and honey. Hot bitter finish. Not great.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at the bar at the Price Tower in Bartlesville, Oklahoma. Looks and smells like an IPA. But it definitely doesnít taste like a normal IPA. This is even more mild than Harpoon IPA. Still, while it doesnít taste like an IPA, itís nice and balanced and smooth. Maybe if it had a different style name it would get better ratings. Maybe OK-PA? And I give it a bonus point for them trying to make good beer in a state that hates alcohol so much. This beer has twice as much alcohol than the stuff they can sell at the supermarket in OK. Bravo, brave men.
