"It’s a good session beer," I was told. What? Undrinkable. No beer in this beer. Where is the taste? I taste lots of water and Budweiser.

MaxPower (961) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - FEB 1, 2004
Cloudy, hazy orange-copper color with a small off white head that doesn't last, no lacing either. Sweet piney-lysol, soapy aroma, over sweet malty flavor with some bitterness, way too sweet for me, taste like soap, medium yet syrupy mouthfeel, I don't like this one at all, I hope I got a bad bottle

Virtually no aroma just a hint of hops, copper colored not much head. No distinctive taste just a bitter taste with an oily feel and a bitter finish.

terrible. At first scent, I was expecing hop aroma, not typical macro adjunct like sweetness. Taste was not much better. Kind of messy presentation with subdued hops, and a thin mouthfeel.

Woody and yeasty aroma or grapefruit. Cloudy amber color, thin head, good lacing. Bitter orange flavor with a lemon peel finish. I really didnít enjoy this much at all. Itís bitter without a complimenting flavor and yeasty.

Hmmmm....Was expecting quite a bit more from this one. It looks ok but amells just like a macro. I had to check the bottle to make sure it wasnít. Just as disappointing taste wise. It tasted like a Budweiser to me. Maybe its the Centennial hops, I donít know, but I bought 2 bottles and the other one is going in the trash. I didnít like this one.

Light copper with a white head. Aroma is fucky, rustic and tobacco like. There are all sorts of weird yeasty things and green fruits going on too. Medium body, flavour is all over the place, like the aroma.. lots of green fruit and a weird finish. So weird.

Never had a skunky IPA before, but I guess there’s a first time for everything. Nice dish soap flavor in the finish makes this IPA one to stay away from.

A mild ipa with no real substance to it other than a tangy tartness that overburdens the hop exposure. A decent brew.

On tap at the Pyramid in the Oakland airport. I hate to give this such a low rating, because it wasnít really that bad, but for an IPA this was so far off the mark I have to. The pour was decent with a golden body and a nice off white head. The aroma didnít have much hops, just some mild pine and mostly cooked vegetables. The flavor was the same. The finish had a bit more hop bitterness, but the weak body and unpleasant cooked veggies kill it. Way below average for the style.
