Can from Joe and served in my GI IPA tulip: Pours an amber hue with a great lasting head and above average lacework. the aroma has very light dankness, some citrus and pine along with plenty of bready and caramel malt notes. A bit soapy as well. The taste is restrained bitterness, light candied fruit and some toasted bread with slight sweetness from crystal malts. The mouth feel is smooth and quaffable. Really a tad underwhelming in this day and age of rip ur face off IPA’s... more akin to an APA than IPA.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A bread-like aroma suggests malts that never show up -- just average bitterness. Relieved there were just two of these in the variety pack.

16oz can at Miller Park. Pours a dark amber color with a tan head. Aroma is lightly hoppy, pine, a little bready malt. Medium on the palate with average carbonation. Flavor is sweet, malty, bready, caramel, some bitter pine hops, with a light bitter finish. A nice beer, but an underwhelming IPA.

Hops hit you immediately with a sweet flavor. Goes down smooth with the perfect amount of carbonation. Finish is surprisingly bitter but still enjoyable.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours orange and bursting with hoppy citrus and grass. A faint head that doesn’t stick around too long. The taste is complex with both sweet and bitter grapefruity notes. Finishes bitter and delicious

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Slightly hazed orange pour with a khaki head. Mediocre hop aroma of grass, flowers, pine, and orange peel. A bit of green apple, straw, and some sweet caramel. The taste is kind of astringent and bitter. Pine, grass, and floral hop notes, mild citrus, and some sweet caramel and bread notes.

Not a bad IPA. For once, an American IPA isn’t overwhelmingly hoppy. This is fairly well balanced and its hop v. malt profile approaches a pale ale. Not bad at all. Tried with Josh N. in 2013.
