Can at a friends house. He said he had it and it was undrinkable. I cracked it open and he was right this is a terrible beer. Couldn’t finish it. Not even an IPA it is more like fermented orange Hi-C

Very underwhelming here. Bought this to try out the brewery and profits go to Save the Lakes. I guess they actually don’t like the lakes... This is not an IPA.

Big 16 ounce can. I got this as an extra in a trade. Did I do something wrong? Malty and sticky. Not worth finishing 16 ounces of it.

I don’t want to dis a local beer, but gosh, Did they taste it before canning it? Its really lousy. Reminds me of classic cheapo beers of the 70’s like Hauenstein. Craft beer implies a level of expertise, and this product exhibits none.

Wow, this is a hilarious thread of beer ratings! I do have to say a first drink I almost threw it out. I then ate some chocolate and the overly orange/ lemon flavor went away (a good thing). Definitely do not taste anything hoppy in this beer, that is the point of an IPA.

Can. Oh man, this is awful. Rotten vegetables and stale malts. Malt liquor elements in this. Bleh.

Ugh. This is no closer to an IPA than I am to Arnold Schwarzenegger. Truly detestable. About the only thing going for it is the charity aspect--sales go to the eradication of invasive species.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can left in my fridge by a ’friend’...
amber-gold pour with a thin soapy looking head.
aroma is caramel, light candied orange. More sweet than hoppy.
Bit of decaying vegetative thing going on as well.
Flavour is evn more disappointing. Bready caramel maltiness, thin body, very little hop balance. lingering wet hay aspect.

473ml can pours a golden orange color with a small white head that leaves only a few specks of lacing on the glass. Aroma is light caramel with only a hint of citrus. Taste is a big malty sweetness up front with a mild citrus in the finish. This brew does not fit the style whatsoever. As with most macros a terrible aftertaste comes through as the beer warms, so I do not recommend this to others.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can courtesy Atom. Fruity caramel malt and dusty hops aroma. Slightly hazy orange amber with a moderate ivory head. Metallic and astringent hops, and sweet bready malt flavor. Medium body and carbonation. Kinda’ icky, but kudos for the charitable effort.
