The finish is flat and disappointing. It has a muted, but nice floral smell. Pours dark and a little cloudy with an off white head. Almost no after taste, but it doesn’t finish clean. It just leaves a faint dry sensation. Eh.

fidelis83 (1975) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - OCT 8, 2014
Clear amber to copper pour with a 1 finger, soapy white head. Aroma is bright tart orange citrus, biscuit, mineral notes and some sweet malt, fruity and floral notes. Flavor is biscuit and caramel up front, light toasted yeasty bread, floral, citrus and spicy hops, and a hint of apple skin and herbal hops toward the finish. Lightish body, creamy to syrupy entry, quickly drying toward the fairly dry, maybe even a tad astringent finish with a medium, blanketing and sharp carbonation. Pretty good stuff, but there’s definitely better at the price point.

seymour (1456) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - OCT 7, 2014
Shared a 12oz brown bottle into sampler glasses. It poured a clear amber colour with weak white foam. True-to-style American IPA. Hops-forward balance, not terribly bitter, not as big and bold as more modern favourites. Grapefruit, pine, black currant. Malty flavour, light-medium body but then with a nice dry hoppy finish. Decent stuff.

Gold pour, small off-white head. Sweet and spicy hop aroma. Quite sweet. Big citrus and flower hop flavor. Not sure how I feel about this one. It’s good but maybe too sweet.

MaBeer1972 (1342) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 30, 2014
Single bottle from Julio’s. A medium burnt copper color brew. Frothy off-white head that settles to a thick lace. Earthy-malt aromas and flavors. Medium bitterness. No citrus at all. Surprising.

drjay44 (2668) - Salida, Colorado, USA - SEP 23, 2014
Draft. Pours a medium, poorly retained white head, with some lacing, over a clear amber (SRM 12) body....nose is light pine, resin, slight herbal notes, light cereal, balance to the hops.....taste is pine, resin, light grapefruit peel, hints of licorice, mild floral notes, cereal, ending with a strong lingering bitterness, balance to the hops....mouth feel, medium body, minimal alcohol, carbonation adds tingle and light acid. This is a very bitter IPA, and is rather simple in both the malt and hop backbones. Suggest reworking both to change complexity. BJCP 7/3/14/4/7

tectactoe (2014) - Michigan, USA - AUG 27, 2014
Tap: Hazy, light amber body with hints of orange flesh throughout. Eggshell, foamy cap disappears quickly to a thin film. Aroma takes on a floral & earthy hop presence up front with a grainy, pale malt backbone. Understates hints of citrus peel & grapefruit rind towards the finish. Taste is quite aggressive with a large bitter smack out of the gate. Citrus peel, ashy florals, light pine that lingers into the aftertaste. Dry, not a big contribution from the malt aside from some pale cracker & grain notes. Decent, could be sessionable thanks to the lower ABV.

Hmmm....very surprised to see I never got around to rating this one. This is a nice showing. Definitely a dry hopped experience, but certainly enough of a malt backbone. Multi-12oz bottle experience.

czar (4502) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 18, 2014
pours cloudy medium dark golden with a small off-whtie cap, some retention and lacing. fruity and spicy toasted maltiness, smooth peppery caramel, woodsy and almost perfumey - orange liquor-like or grand marnier if you prefer, green tea, hint of sweetness, tingling Pepper and pine, some coffee grinds. moderately low carbonation, light body - oily, assertive yet balanced grassy-herbal-citrusy-piney finish. slightly above average ipa.

Transfer from BA review on 11-9-12- Served on tap in a 10 oz chalice glass Appearance – Served a deep amber colored beer with a one finger white head. The head fades in about 1-2 min. leaving a decent amount of lacing. Smell – The aroma is a mix of malt and hop. The malty nature of the aroma is heaviest of a bready smell while the hop aroma is of a grapefruit and earthy smell mixed with a bit of a herbal smell. Taste – The taste begins with a very lightly caramel sweetened bready taste with a lighter citrus hop flavor. As the taste advances the sweetness fades with the citrus hop growing stronger. More towards the end of the taste, with the sweeter flavors largely gone by now, a good dose of herbal and earthy hops come to the tongue. In the end a bitter earthy/herbal biscuit flavor are left on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is just above average in terms of creaminess and thickness with a carbonation level that was just shy of average. The slightly thicker body and the lower carbonation were nice for accentuating the hoppier and breadier flavors of the brew. Overall –The lower abv and more mild hop flavors were nice for making it more session style and the beer has a pretty nice hop flavor that comes to the tongue at the end. While these things were nice, the flavor transitions and balance were not the greatest. Overall it was a decent IPA.

Considerably too malty for my taste in both aroma and flavor. Easy to drink and well constructed, but not my style...
