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.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

We grabbed this as a joke while at the store. That's exactly how it turned out to be, as expected.

It’s OK, but nothing great. A fairly crisp, light IPA. Citrus hop flavor. It was refreshing, although a little thin and a bit of metal to it.

This beer is dreadful. Taste like blood and metallic. Zero hint at hops. Barely managed two sips. Disgraceful.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tallboy from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours light amber with a foamy off-white head. Aroma is pretty much not much at all. Maybe a light hop but ? Med body. Flavor is light caramel with what must be floral hop. It starts sweet, ends kinda bitter, but like most Minhas beers I’ve tried, it’s not wholly pleasant.
