2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
As much as i liked it (which wasn’t very much) i would say this wasn’t true to an IPA style at all. Not quite as hoppy as it should be. Rather weak in fact. The colour which i was hoping for bright orange, poured a pretty dull caramel colour. Aroma was hops with some floral notes. Taste was an odd progression that started off malty, semi sweet then finally faded into a tiny burst of something that would be bitter. Not quite astringent like a hopfeel but just a soft peck of bitterness. Back to the drawing board!

Bottle . A hazy golden orange color with a thin soapy off white head, slight lacing ,medium carbonation. Aroma of musty malt grain,citrus,caramel and yeasty fruit notes. Flavor was better than expected , caramel malt,mild citrus and a bitter floral hop profile. Nice full muthfeel , medium body, nice bitterness,slightly dry,long bitter finish.
This was pretty good and drinkable

1.1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle from Breeze-Thru. Pours hazy golden with minimal head. Aroma is not very pleasing. Smells pretty skunked without much else. No hops of note. Flavor is only slightly better, but not resembling a decent IPA in any way. I would rather have a Natural Light than this. I’m hoping I just got a bad bottle.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle. Unfiltered looking brown-orange color. Minimal head. Light, unassertive toasty lemon aroma. Medium bodied, a little thin. Some pleasant dry bitterness, certainly not syrupy and thick like so many other IPAs. Fruity finish, some lemon and other citrus nuances. Ok, session beer, not so far off from an APA.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poors a slighly hazy bright orange in color. Head is off white and rapidly diminishing. Standard IPA citrus aroma. The palate was a little light but it had a nice citrus finish with a heavy grapfruit predominance.

Crushed with Jakebra. This beer sucked. Aroma of nast and other undesirables. Dish soap flavor. Won’t go for this one again.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A fully-laden India Pale Ale… no. Cloudy amber with a thin white head, gone. Aroma of citrus, bread, ample and sweet malt. Looks and smells ok, but not much going on in the taste department. Over carbonated mish mash of malt and hops that ends up in a somewhat bitter finish dominated by hops lacking any real definable characteristics and some sweet malt to help balance it out. I wasn’t sure what argosy was, so I looked it up… a fleet of merchant ships. At least the beer had a redeeming educational property.
