3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Clear mid amber brew with one finger of off white head, quickly settles to a persistent small head. Aroma is an eclectic mixture of weak resin hops, brown sugar, vanilla, a little earth and spice. Maybe fuggles hops in there? Taste is light sweet malt up front and a little weak resin for the first half of the swallow. Towards the end there’s earth, brown sugar, a little spice. Weakly bitter, the hops flourish recedes before the finish and it ends with just weak resin and little earth, lingering sweetness. Reminds me a bit of some traditional English style IPA’s. Really a different animal from American / modern IPA’s. Not what IPA drinkers seeks or are familiar with and not the epitome of a balanced brew, but enjoyable nonetheless.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
About as basic an IPA as you can buy. Musty hop aroma, some light citrus to remind you of the style and a cardboard caramel base.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This bottled brew from a grocery store poured a very small sized head of foamy white colored bubbles that were and left behind a softly carbonated transparent light orange brown colored body and a fair lacing. The mild aroma was musty. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering hoppy aftertaste. The ok flavor contained notes of mild rye and hops. An OK brew just nothing special.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a light orange with some amber highlights and has a small white head. The aroma is citrus and is fairly nice. The taste has mild hops and citrus. The best beer I have had from World Brews.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pour is anhazy copper with a small whit head. Aroma has some mild hop notes with more of a sweetish caramel malt. Flavor is again a very mild bitterness with a not too sweet malt. Not terribly complex but not as bad as the score indicates here. In the IPA world this would not e close to a good beer.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle from Kroger’s on Broad street The ale poured a clear light amber with a nice 1 inch head that stayed with the beer, There was lacing down the glass. The aroma was very neutral with some resin. The taste had an unnatural sweetness.pours out a dirty gold. The ale had a medium body with average carbonation. The finish was clean with a lingering sweetness. This is an average IPA. I hope I have the correct beer. There is nothing on the bottle for Moe’s Backroom.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from local Yamaya store as "Tap Room No. 21 IPA." Metallic nose, with some caramel and some citrus. Copper/amber color, frothy head. Caramel, rough hopping in mid palate, bread, and cardboard. Contract junk. Nothing really pleasant about this one.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a copper body, with a off white head. Light patches of occasional lace stick to the sides of the glass. Aroma has faint touches of citrus, and earthy pine. The taste is bland, the hops are almost non existent, As it warms up a bit malts come in. Medium bodied slick slightly oily mouthfeel.Overall, not much going on here.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
citrus hoppy pine cones and melon hops are met with some fairly funky notes or soap. It would be a decent IPA if it weren’t for that funky soapy note that is actually overbearing.
