Bottle, mine labeled from Rochester. Pretty pedestrian pour, but not flawed, either. Crystal clear amber brew, thin head. Virtually no aroma, and this drinks without much of a flavor profile at all. But itís not offending, either. Crisp, clean and drinkable. (#5262, 9/22/2013)

Strykzone (4478) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - FEB 27, 2013
Twelve ounce bottle from Hayduke. We had it together via facebook chat. A nice off white head over a mostly clear copper hued beer. Decent carbonation is visible. A soft aroma has flowers and perhaps a bit of honey. The first sip was bitterness with a nice malt profile. There are hops but they donít provide a lot of flavor. Mid glass a sour after taste developed and it was not really pleasant. Unfortunately it was long lasting. A different choice of hops would help this beer. This is not a winner.

hayduke (3159) - Eureka, California, USA - FEB 27, 2013
Share tasting with Strykzone via Facebook Chat. Poured a clear amber with a lot of tiny bubbles and a lot of head. Decent lacing. Nose is stale floral hops. Medium in body with a decent clean mouthfeel. The flavor is bitter to start and overall malt forward. The finish is like the aroma being kind of like stale floral hops. Not an offensive beer, just not exciting either.

Blairgus (2416) - California, USA - MAY 6, 2013
6 may 2013, bottle. Gold with pink twinge. Nose is pine and grapefruit rind hops. Thin body and moderately fizzy. Piney, grapefruit, resin hops. Faintly oily. Kind of mediocre. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Frank (2387) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 23, 2014
I need to be more skeptical when some previously unheard of brew shows up at my grocery store. This is a pretty typical example of what these beers tend to be and it is very mediocre. It does at least pour a nice orange color, clear w/ a long-lasting head of fine white bubbles, but really that is the best thing about it. This is a pretty down-the-middle APA w/ nothing especially compelling about the hops and a slight metallic twinge. It is drinkable, not too sweet and bitter enough in the finish but that is only enough to make for an average beverage.

Bottle at SBT. Slight, caramel orange. Juicier orange-citrus hops. soft scotch malts, metal, ístarburstí candy. maybe it is an out of date bottle, hops taste oxidized, or somesuch. Not great

Not the finest IPA ever, but you know what? It isnít the worst either. Very tolerable, and thatís saying a lot from me, a Stout fan who has been inoculated into an IPA society for the last 1.5 years.

Foxbush (1219) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - FEB 9, 2014
12 oz bottle The ale poured a light amber with a white head which dissiapated quickly. The aroma was muted at best. This not an impressive IPA. The taste was more of malt than hops. the IPA had a light body and average carbonation. The finish was not inspiring. This one needs more work.

hockeybeerguy (910) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - APR 3, 2014
Reviewed from notes. The appearance had a transparent yellow color body with a small one finger head that left some spider web lacing with rings. Fast rising carbonation was seen. The smell was centered around the hops and nothing else. The taste was exactly the same thing. On the palate, it sat at/about a medium with nothing bad about it, but nothing spectacular, slightly watery. Overall, this is just your standard American IPA, nothing to scream about.

Thisis12ptfont (781) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - MAR 15, 2013
Aroma brings light citrus, lemon and herby hops. Crimson/copper appearance with a huge three-finger foam. Pleasant caramel, honey, biscuit overtones. Light fruit and hops on the tail end. Overall, itís not too bad. Kind of a more malt based IPA. Iíd give this a C rating.
