paintedmaple (671) - Peoples Republic of Bloomington, Indiana, USA - DEC 23, 2012
Not an IPA; it is actually more like a cheaply made pale ale made to be put on sale at the local grocery store (which is where I got it). The 1st sip is not all that bad, but it has a weird, lasting, and nasty aftertaste.

Banksiz (127) - Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 9, 2015
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2016 Slightly malty nose, a little minerally, no hoppiness. Sweet and malty for an IPA. Bitter, no noble hop flavor. Finish is a bit harsh, with a burnt toffee overtone. Just ok, nowhere near the flavor and complexity I look for in a 6.3% beer.

ffbot (404) - Oakland, California, USA - JUN 22, 2015
Some dough and bread smell, some dark caramel or fruit smell too. Medium body, slight spice, no aftertaste. Orange glow give for a nice appearance. Cloves, earthy, medium bitterness. No hoppy taste.

bhensonb (14891) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 20, 2015
Bottle from a Grocery Outlet. Pours copper with a beige head. Aroma is light caramel with some hop, and something that hints of cola. Med body or nearly. Flavor is somewhat roasty malt with something suggesting spicy hop and earth. Actually it would be drinkable, if there wasnt something likely to be much more enjoyable available.

Tognetta (925) - So Paulo, BRAZIL - MAY 18, 2015
mbar, espuma de fcil formao, mas pouca durao. Aroma caramelizado, floral, menos intenso que a maioria das IPAs, levemente amadeirada. Paladar mais intenso no dulor do que amargor, que alis ficou devendo. Corpo leve, carbonao mdia. Aftertaste leve, no muito marcante, tendendo para o caramelizado/amadeirado. Apesar de no ter muitas caractersticas de uma IPA, uma cerveja fcil de beber, vale experimentar. Nota geral 8 por ter fugido muito do estilo.

marcus (9992) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 13, 2015
Bottle from bhensonb. Pours orange amber with a modest off-white head and almost no aroma. There is a sort of rancid pale malt flavor with a little hop bitterness.

Satyroneto (368) - BRAZIL - MAR 17, 2015
Cor de ouro envelhecido levemente turva; espuma branca com tons amarelados de média formação e alta persistência com excelente lacing. Aroma floral e de caramelo; Sabor de caramelo queimado com final amargo assertivo e retrogosto adstringente. Corpo e carbonatação médios.

PigMine (42) - San Angelo, Texas, USA - JAN 18, 2015
The best part of this brew is the look. It has a nice solution of small, suspended particulate, showing a pretty, orange color. The aroma and taste are a bit similar to a watered-down Sierra Nevada pale ale. Its not the worst IPA, and better than it has been given credit for, but it is still a third party IPA and kind of defies the craft brew tradition of small-scale, owner/brewed beer. Even though it is a good looking and decently drinkable beer, I would not buy this again, especially after discovering it is a contract brew.

jredmond (8049) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 23, 2014
Bottle courtesy of Blipp at Maxs. Thanks a lot for this garbage, man. Pours a decent golden body with soft white lacing - no indication of the palate brutality about to ensue. Aroma begins to suggest a putrid fruit flavor mixed with a strange sour/spoiled fruity character; some spice and grain as well - is that the hop profile? Mouthfeel confirms what the nose suggests - awful weird fake fruit, cleaner, chemical spicy flavor and bland malt character. Offensive.
