2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Rather unspectacular ipa. Lacking hop aroma and flavor, I don't know why this is classified as an ipa. Looks nice, dark golden slightly orange color, no head though, and a bit of lacing. Overall I wouldn't recommend it.

In a beer desert it fine. But far behind the leaders and not quite even middle of the pack. Cold.

it pours a dark golden orange with an off white head which leaves little lacing. There are faint smells of caramel and citrus. There are caramel tastes with a tinge of bite. The bite comes from a pine taste. It lacks the full range of IPA flavors.

1.4 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Buttery aroma, but a lovely color. It’s really not worth the effort to rate. It did have some hop bitterness.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
12oz bottle from a Hannaford Supermarket in Kennebunk, ME. An amber pour with a thin layer of cream froth; malty aroma with some resinous hops; soft in the mouth with little bite from the hops and a sweet malty body; the hops do appear towards the end to impart a twiggy bitterness.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle This was a new beer on the Food Lion shelves that I thought would be worth a try. A bit disappointing. The ale lacks the normal complexity of an IPA. The IPA poured a clear amber with white head and modest lacing. There is a taste of citrus and resin but almost artifical. The ale also has a malty sweetness with a thin body and only average carbonation. The finish was metalic like with some bitterness in the lower mouth.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nov. 9, 2013; 12 oz. bottle from Hannafords Market, Clinton, NY. At a blowout supermarket price of $6.99, it seemed like a no-brainer to take a chance on this six-pack from a reputable brewer. With a lovely dark amber color, ample head & lacing, this brew looks a lot better than it tastes. Faint, grassy aroma. The hops are sharp & metallic, with little to even it out and make it work as an IPA. Just something "off" with this recipe. Can’t recommend it at this time.
