12oz bottle from Whole Foods in Greenville, SC. Copper-orange pour with a fluffy light tan head. Aroma of toasty malt, caramel, candy. Tastes on the sweet malty side also - with citrus and light pepper. Floral and slightly astringent in the finish. 6.0

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Total Wine in Stuart. Pours a golden orange with a white head leaving some nice lacing. Aroma has heavy sour fruits, with citrus and toffee. Somewhat earthy. Taste is of grapefruit, lemon zest, crystal malts and some sour fruits. Medium bodied and dry. Finishes bitter with some sourness. No date on the bottle so hoping it is just old and not bad. Not a fan.

UPDATED: OCT 19, 2015 It’s a good IPA, it just doesn’t seem all that original or different from what’s currently out there. Lots of good grapefruit flavor and a darker hue. That’ s about all that’s worth pointing out.

Very average IPA. It’s OK (except for some cardboard quality) but nothing distinguishing about it all.

Welcoming citrus aroma, amber medium bodied with sharp bitterness and caramel malt backbone. Textbook well built India Pale Ale.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The beer looked quite nice, with a clear, orange-amber body, and a large head. The smell was too mild for the style, with perfumey hops and toasted malts. The taste was quite bitter, with a metallic tang. There was caramel malt besides the hop bitterness, and not much else. The finish was very dry. The beer was among a mixed six pack of IPA’s I picked up at the store last week. I doubt I will go back for this one again very soon. It wasn’t bad, just not memorable.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Roger Wilco. Pours out a muddy copper color with a moderate off white head. Aroma is of old vegetables, fresh cut grass and caramel, yuck. Taste is equally as odd, one dimensional grassy hops, caramel, cardboard, light sweet citrus bitterness.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle. Pours a deep golden color with frothy creamy white head. Grassy and floral hop aroma. Interesting flavor- bitter as you would expect from an IPA, but some roasted malt flavor as well. Pretty good.
