I didn't taste the mint and I wasn't impressed. Although I am bias against IPAs since I think most of them smell like dirty socks.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
cloudy amber (theres hop sludge at the bottom of the bottle, careful if you don’t like that). nice rocky white head with good retention, a little irregular lacing. some citrus, slight tropical fruitiness, stone fruit, caramel, spruce, a slightly sugary sweetness that comes and goes, subtle (but noticeable) mint that lingers in the finish, fairly boozy. very bitter, medium sweet, not unbalanced. medium-full body, creamy feel, light carbonation, long bitter finish. looking at the other reviews i have to wonder if they tweaked the recipe since last year, because i really enjoyed this. it’d be horrible to drink in the heat, though.

Pours hazy gold, with a floral hops aroma. And it tastes great. I will be back to buy a growler.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very nice looking, kinda tannish orange with a slight haze and a great big head that didn’t want to go away and stuck heavily to the sides of the glass.
A definite mint presence is noted in the nose and taste. Sticky, resinous hops dominate, with piney notes being up front, along with some citrus. It’s a little sweet and the malt base is ample enough to balance out the plentiful hops.
Body is medium, carbonation is medium, drinkability is good for one, a bit overpowering if you’re wanting more than one. Alcohol is not noticeable much in the nose or taste but there’s a bit of warming on the way down.
It’s likeable, if not outstanding. I would certainly try another of this brewery’s beers after trying this one.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy orange copper pour. Medium off white head with lots of lacing. Grapefruit and pine hop aroma. Mild but noticeable caramel malt aroma. Flavor is very similar. Mint is a little bit more noticeable in the flavor but still very faint. Decent ipa.

Mint is very subtle, which may not be a bad thing. Pine and citrus hop notes, though not all that bitter.

Had on draft .. . pours amber, with a light head, some spots of lacing .. . not really getting much mint, heck- even the hops are quite low .. . a bit of bland beer, oh well- i appreciate the experimentation .. . . People used to imagine that 2012 would be full of flying cars but all we have is blankets with sleeves.

(Draught) Pours a hazy golden body with a small white head. Aroma of grass, earth, and mint. Flavor of grass, light pine, grapefruit, biscuit, and light mint with a dry, bitter finish.

Draught > Common Table. This is an old review that I’m just now adding. Shouldn’t a mint IPA taste like mint? I think it should but this one doesn’t. Super cool idea that needs to be fleshed out. Perfect drinker for a Tejas summer. Fine tune this one No Label and bring it back!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Freetail. Pours a cloudy orange with large creamy off white head leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is floral hop and mint. Medium mouthfeel with a bitter hop and grapefruit with light mint coming thru in the finish. A good IPA from No Label.
