1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
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?

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.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A half finger of head on a dark amber colored body.
The aroma is mild grapefruit and faint overall.
Thereís a solid lemon bitterness in the taste. Itís straight forward and bold.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
Itís a "no-frills" IPA and build well.

UPDATED: DEC 10, 2014 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 there is not much here

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Itís more malty than most IPAs Iíve had. Not as hoppy as Iíd like. Very strong alcohol content, but not much else makes it very good.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a light and slightly hazy light amber with orange hues, frothy head. Aromas of caramel mixed with floral/slightly fruity hops. Flavors of caramel slightly overpowering the floral hops. Medium bitter that stays around in the aftertaste. Nothing offensive here just more on the malty side for an ipa and a malty that isnít to charming.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A - Pours a slightly hazy dark golden brown with amber highlights.
Thick head with nice retention. Spotted lacing.
S - Earthy hops, semi-sweet malt, almost a bean scent coming through, a weird earthy, acidic tomato aroma.
T - Floral hops start it off, followed by a candied malt that is quite pronounced, slight chocolate notes mixed with peppery citrus bite, finish is grapefruit rind resin.
Not too shabby. A little on the floral side but other than that a descent IPA.
Serving type: bottle

I normally do not like IPAs. Its probably b/c this one is mild compared to those I've tasted that I like this one.
