Sample at the end of the day at the St Paul Beer Dabbler - doesn’t stack up to the better IPAs out there in the market.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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.
