2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Clear amber coloured body with a thinnish, one centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of funky malt, stale hops, flowers and a bit of spruce. Medium-bodied; Strong malt flavour with earth, metal, stale hops and not much of anything else - perhaps a light sweetness. Aftertaste shows the funky malt, funky hops and touches of caramel with the not pleasant metal and medicinal flavours. Overall, a pretty bad offering, not really worth trying, even for the novelty of the 24 ounce can (culprit). I sampled this 24 ounce can purchased from Merchantís in Dearborn, Michigan on 02-August-2013 for US$2.99 sampled a day later at home in Woodhaven, Michigan.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pour from a 12 oz can. Orange/amber brew with overly large head when poured. Aroma of a little resin. Taste is light and sweet at the start, maybe a little corn, finishes with a mild resinous bite and hints of vegetal adjuncts... . Very light flavor. I am sampling the 2013 "session-style" version and the cans are a little on the warm side. Enjoyable enough on its own merits. Six pack from the Otsego Hardings.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Not sure how this is even an IPA. There are some hops but they are so muted it barely amounts to anything. Not a horribly tasting beer, just not at all a good IPA.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Can, can reads 5% alc. and 44IBUs,
this ale had a clear light red-gold pour and made a two to three faint off-white head that receded quickly to a thin layer, the glass had lots of carbonation, it left little lacing,
it had aromas of cheap macro alcohol notes I get in cheap macro beers, some toasted malt, and faint grass hops in the background,
the flavors were cheap macro alcohol, faint toasted malt, there was a taste of wet leaf and grass hops, there was very little if any hop bitterness in this beer,
it had a light mouth feel with lively carbonation,
this beer was pretty bad, it had the cheap macro alcohol on the nose and palate, the cheap alcohol permeates through out this drink, which I find to be in a lot of the beers made by this brewery, an awful IPA, I had a hard time drinking this stuff, I would never buy this beer again,

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
For what it is -- a self-proclaimed "session" IPA -- itís ok at best. Nice enough mouthfeel albeit no aroma. Maltiness flavor is not bad tho weak. The problem here truly is that the hops are very nuanced. Iíd call this more a session pale, but itís a bit muddled. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
24 oz can. Made me laugh when I saw it so I had to try it. Pours a slightly cloudy golden orange color with a 1 finger head that quickly fades. Blah aroma. Getting sweet corn syrup, honey, and a very light fruitiness. Taste is pretty gross. Way too sweet, almost no bitterness, no hops. Miller Lite has more hops and bitterness than this. How can they can this an IPA? DO NOT BUY. Drain pour.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
12oz can pours copper with gold hues and weak near white head. The mild aroma offers up malts that sweeten up a vague faint citrus hop note as well as honey and a mat liquor pear esteriness. The taste is malty, sugary cherry hard candy mess and vague and sometimes resiny hops. How is this selling? A horrible IPA. Sure glad I didnít go for a six of this or the big can. I donít think Iíll try and finish this 12oz-er. Kitchen sink drain, here I come.

Sample at the end of the day at the St Paul Beer Dabbler - doesnít stack up to the better IPAs out there in the market.
