Middle of the road ipa. No rebel. Just an ipa. The rebel, in my opinion is the whitewater. So...drinkable, citrus and ipa for sure. But nothing sticks out to remind me that I need this beer. Pretty cool label for a so-so beer ipa thingy. I'm sorry I ruined your black panther party.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a very light copper color, almost a gold. Thin white head that leaves some nice lacing. Strong aroma of citrus, pine and a grassy aroma. The flavor is where this falls down. Very thin mouth feel. A thin, grainy and lager like taste that finishes with some light bitterness.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle, $1.69, Kroger Bridge St. Light amber pour with a nearly frothy head that dissipates into a thin ring; light lacing; somewhat thin-looking. Aroma is muddled, predominantly citrus and pine; some almost negligible bready notes. Flavor is similarly jumbled; there’s no distinctness of flavors; it all just presents in one big "fwump" in your mouth; a sharp, unbalanced bitterness through the finish. Medium body but the carbonation is a little too coarse; some nice oiliness. Overall this is certainly drinkable but ranks pretty low as craft IPAs go--possibly the most competitive beer style in the U.S. You can do much better for similar money.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle shared, pours kind of a bright light orange color with white head. The aroma is mild citrusy and some pine. The flavor leaves something to be desired. Feels like the hops are jumbled together and hard to distinguish any rhyme or reason. You get some citrus and pine, but its just jumbled.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 ounce bottle. Clear orange color. Slightly malty with shades of caramel and a decent hop build leaving some bitterness behind. Big citrus? Not exactly. Very drinkable, but not something Tony Magee should be worried about.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle - enjoy by June 2014 (check) - Citrus and resin nose. Sip adds slight caramel (malty backbone) and hay. Easy to drink and moderately bitter for the style. Wet hops. Body is light and a tad watery. Finish is short. Decent and well worth the 99 cents I paid plus tax. I’d pay 99 cents to have another. The more I think about IPAs the more I think of that Simpsons episode where Homer goes to Squidport and orders some meat from Mussolini and Franks. Camera pans out to reveal that all the different meats offered are actually from the same source. Sometimes I think IPAs all come from the same place but with different labels.
