COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is what beer is all about, a nice little bite at first swallow followed by a blossom of flavors delivered by our hand picked aromatic hops and carried through the end with a full fisted kick of alcohol content that rocks the richtor scale at 6.5%. Yeah, this is what beer is all about!
2013 vintage - 5.0% abv

FROTHINGSLOSH (5095) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 28, 2013
Sampled from a 12 oz can this beer poured a bright orange-amber color with a large creamy/soapy yellow-white head that lingered and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was sweet yeasty, bready and had a light citric hop presence. The flavor was sweet, tart and tangy with notes of Sweettart candies, lemon, bread dough and pepper. Medium length tart, tangy lemon and pepper finish. Medium body. Ok.

alobar (2882) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 21, 2013
Pours clear coppers with a white foamy head. Aroma of fruit, pine, and some hops. Fruity with honey, some caramel, and just a touch of hops. Disappointing.

I love this beer! This is the perfect answer to what beer my buddies and I can enjoy during any game or block party. At a reasonable price to the average domestic.. It just taste better then the average everyday beer. Light crisp finish, with just the right amount of hop. And at 5%, we can drink these all day. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DocLock (8054) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 25, 2013
Can from Blue Dog. Pours medium copper, the color of a brand new penny, with 1-finger white head. Nose is orange marmaladey fruit, hops, caramel malt. Tastes caramel malty, a bit metallic, with subdued hops, fruit, and some sweet honey flavor in the finish.

mjg74 (2492) - La Mesa, California, USA - JAN 3, 2013
Can from Casa De Oro. Mildly hopped and spicy. Some peppery hop notes. Not what I would consider a good IPA, but still oddly enjoyable. The new version is 5% abv and is touted as a session style IPA.

Hideous. Picked up during a shopping trip as a joke and still found it disappointing. Referred to on the can as a "sessionable IPA," but I would not recommend it. This tastes nothing like an IPA, and is probably the worst beer I’ve ever had not named Budweiser or Pabst.

12oz can. Looks amber. Aroma of bitter/piney hops and some pale malts. Flavor the same. Average texture. Maybe a good IPA for tailgating, but not a good IPA in general.

This beer is just aweful, this beer has no redeeming qualities. It does not look or taste like an IPA.

BucannonXC5 (937) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 14, 2012
24-oz. can into a pint glass at my house on Oct. 13, 2012 (purchased at Village Square Liquor & Kegs in San Diego for $1.99 on Oct. 13, 2012). Honey amber with two fingers of white head. Average retention on the sides and on the top. Smelled honey, caramel, heavy malts, syrup and light citrus (nectarine) hops. Tasted honey, syrup and malts up front, giving way to a nasty finish of sharp alcohol, slight citrus (orangeish/tangerine) hops and bitter finish. Medium-to-light body. Thin texture. Average carbonation. Bitter syrupy finish. Just a bad beer all-around, save for the cheap price. I would never have this again on purpose. I feel sorry for someone who tries this beer as their first IPA.

crazyvin (1994) - New York, USA - OCT 12, 2012
A nice clear amber body with a frothy head which although did have nice retention it lacked a decent lace. A slightly elevated carbonation. Aroma had some nice citrus hops and some resinous hops, but mostly a sweet malt base mostly sugar but some caramel malts. Flavor was domintially sweet malts, i never found it to be anywhere close to being cloying but it was sweeter then bitter. Finish was smooth and full. A nice beer that really was lacking in a few areas. Still is an adequate session ale.
