Ernest (6542) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 21, 2015
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear light yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (grain, corn starch), lightly to moderately hoppy (grapefruit, lemon oil), moderately yeasty (dough, sweat), with notes of cheese rind, rubber. Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately to heavily bitter, unclean. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Wow, this is just terrible...dirty nose and aftertaste, very thin and watery. Completely phoned in, it would seem. Shameful.

BucannonXC5 (1016) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 20, 2015
Type: 12-oz. bottle Glass: Manzanita pint glass From: Bine & Vine Bottle Shop in Normal Heights (San Diego), Calif. Price: $2.09 Purchased: Feb. 16, 2015 Consumed: Feb. 16, 2015 Misc.: Enjoy by June 5, 2015 at 10:25 p.m. Poured a golden, yellow, pale, clear color with two fingers of white, rocky head. Lots of bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass. Minimal lacing on the sides of the glass. Below average retention on the top. (Sight - 3.38) Smelled a pleasant whiff of hops, much more potent than a session IPA. Got lime, Citra hops, mango, bitter nectarine rind, resin hops, sugary iced tea, light rye hops, Columbus hops, pine and leathery notes. (Smell - 3.75) Taste wasn’t as appealing as the nose. Got mango, resin hops, vegetables, Citra hops, nectarine rind, lime zest, pine, tropical hops and faint rye hops. (Taste - 3.38) Light body. Thin texture. Average carbonation. Abrupt, rather skunky finish. (Feel - 3.25) This was not a very good session IPA. I will not have it again. (Overall - 3.25) 3.42 78 B-

bytemesis (4096) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - FEB 20, 2015
Bottle. Pours pale clear golden, medium white head, dissipates fairly quickly leaving good lacing. Aroma is citrus, pine, dank pot. Flavor is very light sweet, pretty dry actually, light bitter, citrus, spruce, a bit of dankness. Light body, medium carbonation, some mineral feel to it. Pretty tasty and easy to drink.

ChainGangGuy (4482) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - FEB 17, 2015
12 ounce bottle - Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a clear, soft-hued yellow body with a smallish, white head. Slim, stray ribbons of lace.

Smell: Modestly-scented pils malts, lemon and grapefruit, subtle florals and a dried herb note.

Taste: Crackery, faintly bready, lightly grainy pils malts with just a sliver of sweetness. Floral, chiefly citrusy hops with a spreading grassy herbaceousness. Medium bitterness. A bit more resting dough on the backhalf. Grassy, lightly resiny, dry finish with some lingering bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation.

Overall: It’s good at being a low-alcohol IPA.

orvalgold (34) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 16, 2015
Crystal clear pale yellow green, glowing, minimal head produced and subtle ring around the base. Grassy hop aroma, herbal spicy mostly grassy. No malt aromatics. The beer is very crisp with a high level of drinkability. The grassy notes come through in the taste. Slight bitterness towards the finish. Overall it’s very bright and clean and crisp but I would have like more from the hops. The grassy slight dank quality is great buts it’s a bit 1 deminsional.

ttoadee (834) - Austin, Texas, USA - FEB 15, 2015
Thin yellow pour small but tight white head. Nose is fruity citrus. Bitter. Middle is light malt and some woody hop flavor. Finish is dry, light and refreshing. Good session IPA.

DocMcGrain (28) - Plymouth Meeting, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 14, 2015
As Jimmy would say, it's barky. If I'm going to drink an IPA, I'd prefer Dogfish. There's no body, all hops, and is light in flavor. Never again...unless my mouth was on fire. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

solidfunk (4878) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - FEB 13, 2015
Nineteen years as a brewery and this is what you produce. A boring session ale. Well, I guess after 19 years you settle into your ways and churn out boring beer. Light citrus, light bitter finish. Lager golden pour. Tap at Glens.

Pale yellow, little head. Clean hop nose. Sharp bitter start, but not overwhelming. Consistent throughout. Decent carbonation. Clean, quality IPA.

12oz bottle. Yellow color. Aroma of soap. Hop florals. Tastes like watered, pale grains. Finishes with a harsh bitterness, like eating soap. (4296)
