Smells like dank cheap weed. Seems like it has potential to be a nice IPA then just doesn’t make it. Pretty much what I expected from the brewery.

Christpuncher (1401) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 14, 2014
Smells very malty and tasted malty at first. Finishes with a hoppy bitter punch. Pours copper in color with a light tan head. Had out of a bottle at home. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MrBunn (2511) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 22, 2014
Bottle. Dingy Amber pour with lots of carbonation and a medium head. Aromas are weakly dusty with a little grass and citrus. Flavor follows suite. This is not a very assertive hops presence and it comes off much more like an amber ale than an ipa. A little grass and spice with a hint of grapefruit and then a fizzle.

Maltser85 (316) - Fargo, North Dakota, USA - NOV 16, 2014
Pours a strangely dark amber color with a slightly off white head. Aroma is really weird. Seems like some english hops, but I know they use Brewer’s Gold and Cascade. Sweet sugar notes, slight "wet" note that you would find in the wet hop ales. Slight bitter note up front, a little leafy, burnt sugar, slight spicy/earthy note. Slightly bitter finish blends with the burnt sugar note and is tasty. Medium light body. Not a bad beer, just odd, especially for the style.

fakebeersnob (184) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - NOV 10, 2014
Pours a lot darker than expected from a IPA. Off-white head that lingers. Light citrus/grapefruit, and finishes with a pine resiny taste. It is not a bad IPA, but nothing stuck out at me. Easy drinking.

onceblind (4659) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 7, 2014
Cloudy dark copper hue with a gorgeous light beige foamy head. Nice fresh and floral leafy nose with a sweet caramel and cereal sweetness underneath. The cereal tones take center charge on the flavor with a dull grassy and citric hop floavor in the middle, ending with some toffee malt and generic hop bitterness. Kinda unexciting for an american IPA, though for a British IPA this would be pretty money.

Nice citrus and pine aroma. Flavors of caramel, lemon peel, orange, grains, pine and hints of pepper. Finish is a bit harsh but good aftertaste.

unclemike (2309) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - OCT 28, 2014
Pours medium hue body with abundant off-white head. Medium plus mouthfeel. Smooth bitterness. Could go as an IPA. Decent drinkability. Toasty malts in aroma and in taste. Worth having once.

decaturstevo (5215) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - OCT 12, 2014
Orange almost brown pour with white head. Aroma is resiny hops and and light malt. Flavor is semi sweet malt, and citrus hp bitter. Medium body with ok carbonation. A bit of jumbled flavor. Some fruity esters as well not bad but not refined. Almost harsh

demitriustown (1092) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - OCT 11, 2014
12 oz bottle: Appearance is a clear amber pour with a thick white head that lingers for quite a while. Taste has got a nice hop texture with a lingering citrus and resin notes. Aroma has got a great hop note with a overtone of grapefruit and pine. Palate has got a medium mouth feel and an aftertaste of lingering bitterness. Overall, it’s alright. Cheers!
