High sweetness, lacking in hops. Not too impressed with this one. Just OK.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a copper-gold with massive head (almost too much so). Aroma is of grass, grain, malt--where are the hops? Flavor is very grassy, with malt and very little in the way of hops--none of the characteristic citrus or piney bitterness. A disappointment.

Bottle at MoJo’s restaurant in Elkhorn....pours a bright orange with thin head. Bitter not really hoppy nose or taste. Mediocre IPA....

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can. Pours amber brown with creamy off-white head. Nose is light but pleasant - mild fruitiness and just a bit of floral hops. Flavor is lightly sweet, bready maltiness followed by a good dose of lasting bitterness and some hop resin aftertaste. I think I see what MKE was going for here - a strong bitter beer - and it drinks like a strong pale ale or perhaps a burton ale, and would be quite good for an American strong ale but doesn’t hold up against the style profile for most IPAs adopted by U.S. brewers at this moment.

Bottle pour copper. Nose dank hop and earthy malt. Some metallic. Taste also dank and earthy, some bitter early. Noir all that appetizing.

2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poor showing... If your first homebrew tasted like this then that's cool. You have something to build on. But this no way...it has a nice head that sticks around... Aroma is bad taste is horrible ... Once u get past the first taste the secondary taste is almost acceptable with what appears to be slight citrus! But this is bad

16oz can-rich tan-dk amber. A-resin, doughy-med malt. T-follows. Carbonation is a bit soft, still a nice drinking beer.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can. Thanks to CanIHave4Beers! A rich copper pour is topped with a fluffy light tan head. Bright citrus and caramel are up front on the nose. There is also a little bit of dough. This tastes like sugared up grapefruit mixed with iced tea. There is a little bit of caramel in the strong black tea finish. A little too sweet and unbalanced for my tastes. Smooth mouthfeel for the ABV.

From a can.
The beer pours a hazy orangish gold with a good head and nice lacing on the glass.
The aroma is a little sweet with some grassy & citrusy hops.
The flavor is nice enough, sweeter and more malt forward than I usually like my IPAs to be. The bitterness balances this to a degree and it’s got some nice spicy and fruity hop character.
Not really my style of IPA, good enough though... I’ve had worse from "cooler" breweries.
