Bottle. Hazy dark golden colour. OK stable white head. The flavour has a spicy hop note. Not much else. Tastes good, though.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hazy golden body with an off-white head that explodes out of the bottle. Aroma is lemon, light flowery. Taste is medium sweet, floral, some lemon tartness. Finishes lemon. Watery medium body. They can call it an IPA all they want, but it doesn't seem like one to me.

Eh, not great. Light amber pour, small head. Where the hell are the hops? I dont get these IPA’s that just have no hop bite...dammit.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12oz bottle acquired in trade with 46er3498 (thanks!). Poured a medium and hazy golden color with a small sized white head. Subtle aromas of citrus and fruity. Tastes of citrus and grainy. Thinner taste and thin body. If I had this blind, i wouldn’t have guessed it was an IPA (amber ale).

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle. Hazy, unfiltered, thich white head. Sweet fruity hop aroma, pine, cedar, light leathery character as well. A bit infected. Honey and lemon citrus as well. Falvour is also slightly infected, honey, leather, orange. Light Bretty character. Cologne, orange peel and a dry finish. I don’t know if the infection is intended, but sometimes an infection can be tasty... this is one of those times.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Good dry hop bitterness…Its frail body evokes that of a white wine…A wooden character as well…An honest I.P.A….

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
This is not an IPA. Don’t let the name fool you. Tastes more like a bland lager. Pours yellow.
