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!

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.

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.

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 Iíd drink again if offered at a tail gate.

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?

TheJestersBeer (2036) - SWEDEN - NOV 30, 2013
355ml can. 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)

Ratman197 (9560) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - NOV 4, 2013
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!

Can. Pours cloudy yellow gold with white head. Nose and taste of perfume, light hop, light malt and apple. Lighter bodied.

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. Doesnít 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.

Tallcan from totalwine. Taste is trash. Would almost rather drink a bud light. Donít waste your time.
