Average run of the mill beer. Disappointed with it overall - kind of a pointless offering. Flavor is OK, not much of an IPA lacking hop character and bitterness impact, didn’t find it had much malt flavor either. Not bad, won’t buy again.

Mörkgul på gränsen till ljusbrun vätska med ett krämigt fast smutsgult skum. Doften är ganska mörk med vissa karamelltoner i de friska humledofterna. Smaken är torr och krispig med väl tilltagen beska och stor kropp. En ganska tung öl som förmodligen skulle fungera kanon till julbordet.

Brunorange klar med tynt hvitt skum som ligger. Humle, karamell, jord, plommelukt. Søtlig og medium bitter grape i smak. Medium kullsyre, bitter ganske lang ettersmak

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle from a Mix A Six at Jewel Osco (Lisle, IL). Picked this up on a whim. Pours a copper orange hue, gentle haze and lively carbonation. Darker body, more amber orange glow on the edges and bottom. A small frothy offwhite head atop dies down to a small layer, sticks around small and laces lightly. Aromas are florals, a bit of lemon and earth. Touchess of toffee and biscuity malts. Touches of paper, bread, and earthy hops. Ok, a touch sweet, floral and gentle spice. Initial is medium bodied, florals and bready malts mix with gentle toast, biscuit and lemon. Some earthy hops, a bit resiny with some spice, touches of carmelized malts, wet paper. Middle is a touch sweeter, more biscuits, touch of toffee and toast. Some earthy hops, toast, spice. Some dryness as we move to the backend, a touch sweet, the hop profile tapers out, some faint orange, decent floral bitterness and a bit of spiciness. Overall, a touch sweet and malty, the hop profile kinda rides the sidecar, with some biscuits, toast and carmelized malts. Meh. Overall this is a bit sweet, girthy and lacks the hop complexity and oomph you’d like here. It’s not terrible, but it’s not something I’d revisit as it’s outside of my preference range.

Bottle to glass at room temp. Lots to the aroma and I struggled to pull anything out of it. The taste is strongly hopped and I liked this one a lot.

Not bad, but not exceptional. There is a little bit of citrus, some grass, with a thin bready malt backing.

Bottle. Amber, clear copper in color with light white frothy head. Aromas of pine and grapefruiy. Pine and citrus flavors, bitter yet slightly sweet. Lighter than expected body with light carbonation and malt driven balance. Bitter herbal finish.
To be drunk while sitting on a freshly chopped-down sequoia tree to be used in constructing your families log cabin home which will of course be built with only your bare hands.

355ml bottle. Clear amber body with a low white head. Quite a busy beer with many different flavor, but it feels unbalanced...

Strong hops flavor as an IPA should be. The aftertaste lacks intensity. The IBU's formula could be improved.

Bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a thick white head. Aroma is pine and grapefruit, with a bit of sweetness. Taste is much of the same, pine, bitterness, and mild sweetness. Not to bad.
