2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Can: The aroma consists of moderate caramel and toffee with lighter fruit and a touch of floral hops. It pours a transparent amber with a large orange tinted off-white head that has great retention and leaves behind a lot of soapy lacing on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with a lot of caramel and toffee along with some light fruit. The finish floral hops, a touch of cardboard, and mint. It’s light-medium bodied with mild carbonation and a slightly sticky mouthfeel. Overall, this is not at all that I want in an IPA and it’s not very good even on the hedonistic scale.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Smell is weak for an IPA but you get sweet fruit. Appearance is dark amber. Taste is semi sweet with a light malt backing. Finishes with slight alcohol and very little hop bitterness

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I’m not sure why everybody is so hard on this beer. Its really not that bad. A simple foamy head. Golden hue. The hops are present but not overpowering. A fresh clean beer without the tin wash down. Not gonna rock your world but not bad if you hide a few in the tackle box for fishing. A minimal yes to this beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours reddish orange and slightly hazy. Smell is subdued with typical hop aromas of nondescript floral and fruity notes. Nice but subtle. Taste is more malt driven than most IPAs by quite a bit. Very light bitterness and more malty than I’d like. Kind of a grainy cereal honey sweetness that peeks through. Like a pale ale with higher alcohol.

3.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A clear medium amber color with a light head. The flavor is not bad, but is a bit weak for an IPA.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.
