hamsterglory (48) - Bryan, Texas, USA - APR 21, 2009
this might be the worst IPA i have ever tasted. bought it tonight for $1.89 a single bottle at a store in small town texas. it was worth about $0.89. zero nose. could barely detect beer in the nose. the appearance suggested hard lagers or the red-headed step-sister of age-old schiltz. nothing bold or light refracting. the palate ran thin, emotionless, juliette lewis performance in CHRISTMAS VACATION. aftertaste yielded the slightest hint of hops though not enough to truly indicate what flavor profile. maybe burnt? maybe dead pine? not sure. funny thing: i like abita. i like their turbodog, purple haze and draft root beer. still, they did not impress me with this IPA. thanks, but not thanks. i need my buck-eighty back.

0.355l bottle @ Tribeca Tavern, shared with The Girlfriend. A crystal clear one. The girlfriend complained that I had to close one eye to see the clarity on this one by that indicating that I have had enough tonight. Anyhow, as mentioned its a crystal clear one. Hard to see the color. Goldenish? Think so? The head is sidesticking and soft lacing while off-white in color. Soft fruity nose. Red fruits. Not too much more really. Dark peachy in a way, orange zest bitter. Soft birch, a little bit of old citrus. Not a really memorable one, but its still a decently tasty easy drinking IPA. 15.06.2015

Originally rated on 12/29/08. Jockamo pours a copper body with average carbonation, very little lace. Aroma was nice... at first, sweet floral aroma that got a tiny bit funky as it warmed. Flavor was o.k. but it pretty much just bitter. Overall it was better than i expected but its a little above average IPA.

Pours with an amber-brown colour and a frizzy head. The taste is good but not so hoppy, not a real IPA. An average beer.

Great reddish brown color.. not much head. Smell is a bit malt heavy, but not offputting. Taste is above average.. more APA than IPA.

Pours a golden amber color with big fizzy head. Aromas of fruit and citrus peel and some piney notes. Flavors of tropical fruits and some piney hops.

This is an IPA? Not very hoppy. Malt forward but not hoppy. Toast and light hop. Basic brew. Pass. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottiglia 35 cl. Bel colore color ambra, schiuma fine e persistente. Aroma di malto e caramello, in bocca malto e subito dopo luppolo, anche nel finale lungo. Corpo leggero, bassa carbonazione. Niente di strabiliante, ma molto gradevole.

Color ambra, ha leggero naso agrumato. Sicuramente la bottiglia provata non era in forma, ma comunque ben lontana dalle migliori Ipa

Bottle - pours deep orange with a short lived head. Aroma is resin hop and malt. Taste isn’t as hoppy as expected. Dry quite smooth orange citrus finish.

From a bottle. Pretty much what you would expect, well made IPA with a huge hop punch and resin finish. Good stuff.
