Aroma was I don't remember. Light amber. Quite bitter and surprisingly fruity. Medium body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beergeek23322 (2263) - Chesapeake, Virginia, USA - JUL 23, 2013
March 2012. Bottle. Middle of the road IPA, but with so many better choices out there, why even bother? Amber color, white head. Some hops, but muted. Mostly malt and caramel.

Pours a light copper color with a minimal off-white head. Aroma of pine and melon. Decent malt to hops balance. Not a bad drinking IPA but far from the best. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kaser (2704) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 2, 2013
Very subpar IPA. Dank boring taste. Small hops. Just a commercial IPA in my opinion. Had this on draft at Pyramid Brewery by Safeco field.

Smurf2055 (1399) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 27, 2013
Bland smell. Murky and fizzy appearance (like a wheat beer). Slightly bitter taste, not a lot of depth. Drinkable. My craft beer friends all hate it, and my non-craft beer friends all hate it, not sure where the appeal is on this. Maybe for wannabe beer snobs?

Sammy (8636) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 6, 2013
On tap at the National. Watered down. Hoppy, but also astringent and metallic. Some lace and head. Not so drinkability.

Not my fav IPA by far but not horrible. Nose was pretty muted. Nice amber pour . Some foam. Flavour is malty with muted hop flavour. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fatehunter (1214) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - APR 10, 2013
A half finger of head on a dark amber colored body. The aroma is mild grapefruit and faint overall. There’s a solid lemon bitterness in the taste. It’s straight forward and bold. The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation. It’s a "no-frills" IPA and build well.

Gerbeer (1784) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 9, 2013
12 oz bottle. Pours amber with medium head and lots of carbonation. Aromas of malts and a touch of floral hops. Flavours are similar with significant bitter finish. Except for the bittering thee much there.

Patrickctenchi (3662) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - FEB 25, 2013
Slightly hazy orange-amber with a short head. Scent is sweetly bready, faint herbals. Taste is a sugary caramel malt, tingly carbonation, earthy bitter. Nice, but average.
