2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle labeled as 6.5% ABV.
Pours orange-amber, hazy, modest ivory head has weak retention. The aroma is nice fruity with significant contributions from both hops and light malts. The flavor starts as expected, hoppy with a notable malt presence and some fruitiness and bubblegum. Moderate (for style) amount of hop flavor with a lasting and bitter hop [grapefruit peel] aftertaste as the sweet malts seem to disappear. Medium body with good carbonation. Dry finish.
O - a rather mediocre IPA.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Kind of a bland beer for the style. Pours amber with a white head. The aroma has a bit of bread and some citrus. Underwhelming to say the least. The flavor had a bit more hop bitterness but again underwhelming. Kind of watery at the end.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz. bottle. Two shades darker than gold on the pour with fairly minimal white head that leaves a bit of sticky lace. A hint of hops on the nose but not much else. The same can be said of the palate. Not exciting but not terrible either.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Almost clear light golden body and white frothy head. Fresh grassy hops and sweet orange. Decent smell. Taste is a bit simple and astringent but not bad at all. (Bottle in St Augustine on Florida trip)

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I’m having this straight out of the bottle, there is hints of pine and citrus on the nose, I agree with a previous review that this IPA actually drinks and taste more along the lines of a pale ale there is a small burst of hops up front follwed by a sweet malt back bone there are way better as far as IPAs go but I’ve definitely had worse not a bad change of pace...cheers

It's a thoroughly OK beer. Decent if you want I upgrade from miller light, but it's a step below Sam Adams or others.
