On Tap at YardHouse Brea, Ca. Pours light amber/orange with super thin white head. Aroma is really difficult to detect (might be the setting). Light subtle aroma of hops. Flavor is very mellow, with notes of sweet citrus (oranges) then finishes with a slight hoppiness (for an IPA). The after-taste leaves the throat dry and slightly hoppy. Very diapointing for an IPA. As a self proclaimed Hop-Head, the San Diego IPA’s are much, much better.

12oz. Pours a clear golden color with a white head. Mostly sweet in the nose, body follows with loads of sweet malt and the slightest notion of hop. Carbonation is medium to high, makes it fairly drinkable. A good introductory IPA and that is why you will find it in most grocery stores.

Narnad (1518) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - JUL 7, 2008
Pours golden with medium amount of carbonation producing a small fine head. Aroma is strong of pine and flavor matches the aroma very well. Overall a decent IPA for the money.

light gold pour with a thin layer of white froth. decent hops on the nose with some fruity notes. good thickness but the hops are way too mellow for an ipa imo.

Actually, I felt this to be a pretty decent IPA, as far as middle of the road IPAs go. Had a nice bitterness, couples with a hoppy flavor with enough backbone to support it. A little citric and piney, pretty much what I like to tast in an IPA. I wasn’t mad at this at all. Nice.

Not a bad ipa. Classic IPA color. Good hop presence in the aroma. More piney hops in the taste along with some faint caramel malt.

Block (2086) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JUL 5, 2008
My first IPA and really fun to drink. I’m still getting used to more bitter beers so this brew was a very interesting drink. Pale color and the most hop character I’ve ever had. As I try more IPA and bitters I’ll probably come back to this one and give it a re-rate after my palate has developed a little.

Bottle. Golden pour with a medium medium head reducing to a thin layer rather quickly. The aroma is probably the best thing about this beer. Its not great but it does have a nice citrus and floral hoppiness. Taste is slightly bitter with an average finish. Not bad for picking it up at a gas station.

Frohike (10) - Santa Cruz, California, USA - JUN 28, 2008
Pours a pale straw color. Faint scent of citrus hops. Decent head, with the expected lacing. Flavor was weak, nearly an amber. Not enough of an IPA. Too boring & weak.
