2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Very underwhelming for an ipa. Can almost consider this a pale ale. Flat aromas with a slightly bitter aftertaste

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a cloudy gold/copper with medium white head. It has a nice malt and hops aroma with nuts and slight toast with some spruce and grass. It is medium sweet with a very slight bitter. Medium body with a slight sticky texture. Not a bad IPA but certainly sweeter than I’m used to.

1.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Clear pale amber with a fluffy cream colored head. Aroma of toast, grass, citrus, and caramel. Malty, bitter, and very unnatural tasting; like metal wheat dipped in chemical plant residue. Medium bodied, but the drain doesn’t really care. A port-o-potty would probably spit this out.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Kroger. Pours a clear amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have mild caramel malt, lightly toasted, weak citrus and earthy hops with a side of cardboard. This is just approaching pale ale status, but definitely not IPA. Thin and watery for the style.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This is a bad example of an IPA. A pale ale at best. Light, sweet, some hops. Very underwhelming.

Amber with white head. Bitter, hoppy scent and taste. Clear spice taste with crisp finish. Decent ipa.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Taste is mild citrus, hay, earth and a bit of malt. Thin for an IPA without much bite, but not too bad.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from Kroger. Lighter pour with a white head. Aroma is stale grain and a little citrus. Taste is cardboard, spice, and kinda gross.

1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
This beer was cheap at Kroger so I thought I would give it a shot but there is no aroma and the flavor is so mild. Citrusy hints with malt over powering the hops which makes it seem like a pale ale that isn’t even very hoppy. Terrible beer will never make this mistake again.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Cardboard, orange, and light orange peel aroma. Golden yellow with small head. Stale orange malt and lightly bitter orange peel flavor. Might have been slightly better if it wasn’t oxidized.
