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.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Malty, with some very light hop aroma and flavor. Has some slight citrus notes, but overall very pale, very light, and not enough hop intensity.

4.1 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This IPA has a very strong hoppy and long lasting after taste. The beer tastes very good overall. If you really take the time to taste the after taste of a beer and you like hops you will like this beer.

Tap at beerfest, from notes. Pours a nice clear gold with white head, weak hops but drinkable. Weighing in at only 5%, this is something I’d drink again if offered at a tail gate.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Pour from can. Semi murky yellow/orange pour, with an off white head. Sweet, stale malts, horse piss, cardboard, and sugar. What the hell is this shiet?

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours a medium gold, with a white head.
Malty aroma, hints (hints!) of hops, honey, cardboard, citrus.
Semi-sweet, medium bodied, low bitterness, balanced CO2.
Fruity, sugary taste, caramel, honey, cardboard.
IPA? Who stole the hops? Really dissappointing. (2013-11-30)

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 6/20
Can poured a clear golden amber with a small lingering ivory head. Aromas of bread, earthiness, plastic and light fruitiness. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of bread, plastic, earthiness and a hint of citrus with a crisp dry bitter lingering plastic finish. Absolute Crap!

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
12 ounce can purchased from Grocery Outlet. 2013 Vintage. The aroma on this is sweet, syrupy, and floral. Some green apple is also lingering, too. Doesn’t smell much like an IPA. Transparent golden body with a slight orange hue present. Small, quickly dissipating white head. Starts really sweet and sugary. Light husk in the middle. Finishes with virtually no hop bitterness. Perhaps a little floral flavor. Pretty bad IPA. Kinda of sweet for being a wimpy amber ale, too.
