Indra (2617) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - MAY 27, 2014
12oz. can. Aroma of toasted malt and faint caramel, some light citrus here as well. Clear medium deep amber in color with a lasting, fine head and delicate lacing. Flavor profile is somehow a bit muted for this style, with some combination of brown sugary sweetness, toasty biscuit malt and grapefruit, bitterness is there, but certainly light for the style, nothing too bold or bitter here. Little to no effervescence on the palate with a slick feel and a medium body. Back to the drawing board with this one.

Syndicate (89) - Idaho, USA - MAY 18, 2014
Got this from spence. Poured out of a 12oz can. Pours an amber hue with a big head. Darker then your typical IPA. Nose is mostly malt forward. Taste is cereal malts with not much hops here. Its a rather plain ipa. Nothing to see here.

RABinCO (1287) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAY 14, 2014
Can into a fluted glasses. Pours a deep, dark reddish amber. Not @ all pale. Thick creamy head. Aroma is grass, citrus, a bit of apple and caramel. Taste is super malt forward, barely any real hop character except a light bitterness that barely cuts through the sweetness. Kind of stale tasting. Bummer I bought a whole sixer of this junk.

JBPortland (779) - Portland, Maine, USA - MAY 11, 2014
12oz can thanks to robloc303, pours semi-clear ruby red brown with a finger of head. Nose is malty caramel and some faint pine, not a lot there. Taste is thick bready malt, dark fruit (in an ipa?), smoky. Finish is bitter bready malt, caramel, smoky. Would never identify this as an IPA if blind tasting. Weird, not very good.

TXBadger (1381) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 1, 2014
Pours a copper color with off-white head. Citrus and pine on the nose; follows onto the palate. Not overly complex, just kind of a typical everyday type IPA.

dlihcsnatas (292) - Texas, USA - APR 15, 2014
Dark Amber with the smell of herbs and slight citrus. Very dry bitter brew that tastes of pine, roasted malt, slightly spicy, and again a bitter dry finish. Pretty decent IPA but unfortunatily for the price there are those that I will buy before going at this one again.

beerbaaron (1244) - Arizona, USA - MAR 29, 2014
Can courtesy of theothermatt. Poured unclear dark orange amber. Medium frothy white head, partly lasting with some nice lace. Aroma is moderate malty with fruity hops. Caramel, orange, peach, maybe some resin. Flavor is quite malty. Medium plus bodied. Oily. Finish is sweet, malty, with resiny bitterness. Its characteristics all sort of glob together in an unflatteringly sweet way.

MarinEvelyn (552) - Wisconsin, USA - MAR 29, 2014
Aroma is pretty sweet, hoppy, malty, bitter. Caramel. Taste is similar, mainly hoppy and bitter. Bitter finish bit still fairly smooth.

ansermadide (1520) - Kyle, Texas, USA - MAR 27, 2014
I donít remember this beer looking so attractive. Poured into a glass, it displays a deep copper-orange color with a large, billowy nearly sand-colored head that was actually supporting a few pieces of matter from what appears to be the grain bill. Carbonation was vivacious for quite a while. The nose is very nice, bold with caramelized malts, a barn door-like dusty sweetness, and a gentle but robust hop presence. The flavor is gentle, but sweet (in a dull, earthy way), and pleasantly grainy with an herbal and acidic citrus, grapefruit-like, dare I say nearly tropical, hop finish. Itís almost creamy on the lips and in the mouth, soft and full, with plenty body to dish out the dull, musky sweetness and muted, but sharp, hop bitterness. Some of the sweetness persists in the mouth long after the finish, expressing more of the beerís moderate-to-high malt caramelization character. Over time something in the mix starts to remind me a little of hay, and perhaps some notes of burnt sugar.

Pershing (476) - Garland, Texas, USA - MAR 22, 2014
slight hazy copper color with an off white rocky beige head that lingers around for a long time. Upfront grapefruit aroma. Lots of hop bitterness in this one with a medium body. Some spice towards the middle and a lingering hop finish. This IPA is way under rated. Wanted there malty brown ale but Total Wine was out. They just need to improve their logo and add some color to their glassware. I would think that the mauve color is not very popular with beer drinkers.
