12oz bottle poured into glass. While this has some good hop character to it there really wasnít much to jot down. Itís a straight forward IPA, somewhat bland, but a good attempt at the style.

Probably not fair that I rate this, as I think that it wasnít fresh. Poured a light amber with a smallish head. Good lacing. Hops were faded leaving a grainy, bready, and slighly piney flavor. I think the hops were gone. Bottle - Friendís House - Atlanta, GA

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a dirty amber with a khaki head, decent lacing. Slight nose of pine, citrus that got better as the beer warmed up. Mostly dominated by a caramel malt scent. Not a whole lot going on here but just enough to be noticed. Abit of citrus on the tongue initially, followed by some maltiness ending with a touch of hop tartness. Once again not much going on in the amount of flavor but what is there seems balanced enough. A decent brew but nothing I would seek out.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a clear amber color. Average white frothy head dissapates quickly leaving some visible lacing. Aromas of toast, caramel, and some light hops. Taste is subtle; malty and a touch metallic with a very mild hop bitterness. Not my style of IPA.

Bottle pour. Aromas were strange with some off sweetness present. My biggest complaint is that I know Saga is out there... so much better

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle pours a clear orange/amber color with average white head and very little lacing. Aroma is primarily of caramel malts. The hops only come forward in the finish. Body is medium with average carbonation and a slightly sticky mouthfeel. Thereís nothing horrible here, but nothing memorable either in the crowded field of IPAs. No complaints or praise here for this one.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JAN 15, 2013 This is an American version of an English style I.P.A, therefore, it doesnít have the Citrus, Piney or tropical fruit profile of an American I.P,A. It does, however, have a subtle fruity nose and a middle of the tongue taste that blends with a subtle malt presence, The bottom of the tongue picks up a variety of bitter hop tastes, from kind of grassy and lingering to sharp and dry. This is actually a pretty good beer and itís cheap, so this will be a definite GO-TO beer for me.
