2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a light clear amber with light orange hues and a frothy head. Aromas of caramel, pine hops, and hints of toffee. Flavors of light bitter hay hops, very light toffee, and light grass. Medium bitter and leaves its bitter bite with bitter and slight grain. Expected more in the flavors from the nose. Smells like a light bock and drinks like a bitter.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear copper-amber with a large beige milkshake head. Aroma of skunked toasted malt, light toffee, grains and mild grassy hops. Gritty, grainy and slippery with caramel, a touch of fruit an minimal bitterness. Perhaps someone should get these guys a style guide on what an IPA is!

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Pours dark brown, clear with small head. Not much of an aroma aside from some malt and caramel. There is some bitterness at the onset of the taste, but it dissipates quickly into a watery, bitter, skunky aftertaste. Caramel, toasted malt taste is most prominent. The beer is quite creamy with a light-medium body but the flavor leaves much to to be desired. Nothing very memorable about this one. This beer needs to be re-categorized, it is not an English IPA.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Moderate aromas of roasted, nutty and herbs for the malt and hops, light soap for the yeast, with wood and dry sherry in the background. Head is small, frothy, white with fair lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is sparkling clear medium amber. Flavor starts lightly sweet and lightly to moderately acidic, then finishes lightly bittersweet. Palate is medium,watery with a lively carbonation and a dry finish. A good drinking ESB, but it says IPA on the bottle..."They fooled ME Jerry!"
