This is to the dull side of a middle-of-the-road IPA. Itís not a bad beer, but IMHO it is too malty and lacking in hops to be an IPA.

Decent, drinkable, and inexpensive for "good" beer. But nothing too exciting. Itís pretty middle-of-the-road all around, and while I get bitterness from the hops, I donít get any other hoppy goodness.

Nothing "astonishing" about this weak IPA. Overall, weak in every department. Maybe I got an older 6íer judging by the dust on the bottles?

This was just íokí, nothing special at all. Aroma was quaint and light. Taste was too malty, not enough hops for me. It didnít even really taste much like an IPA to me, more like a regular old pale ale. There are better beers out there. Maybe a good intro IPA to a friend that knows nothing but BMC.

About as nondescript as an IPA can come and remain a decent tasting IPA. Nothing offensive, nothing alluring. Hop bitterness is there but overwhelmed by the malt sweetness. Mouthfeel is a bit thing. A merely serviceable IPA.

2.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
From a bottle, poured golden amber, white light bubbled head. Almost no aroma, faint hops, faint malt. Hop bitterness is strong on the tongue, but not well balanced with the malt profile. Resinous pine flavor, without any of the citrus/floral notes that Iíve come to love in an IPA, especially from the NW. Mediocre at best.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a light copper with some nice thick creamy head, excellent clarity. Aroma is of orange citrus, light grapefruit, very light caramel malt, slightly hinting at fresh green pepper. Moderately sweet sipping with a nice dry and smooth bitter finish, light bodied. Bitterness lingers slightly, but not much. Also, finishes fairly dry. Your ordinary, middle of the road, run of the mill PNW IPA, average at best and below average at worst.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Spirits Lacey. Pours out a mostly clear, copper color with no head. Aroma is of bready malts, caramel, some light citrus hops. Taste is caramel malts, lots of bread, cereal, some lingering citrus hops add some bitterness, but the overall flavor is somewhat one dimensional and average.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
powerful enough pepper like bitterness that lingers with grapefruit pith. a touch of sour and caramel malt to help balance. golden brew with light orange hue the head fades fast and there is booze in the mid profile with some Belgian influences of banana and clove just wafting for a moment. carbonation seems mild with a citrus zing right before swallowing. wake up brew! demonstrative and disturbing.
