I remember picking up a six pack of this for Sunday football. I dont remember the beer itself much. Nothing special.

Bottle. Hazy medium amber with golden highlights, ginormous foamy head that stays put, slowly caving in on itself. Aroma is pretty soapy, oddly enough. Caramel with intrusive plastic notes flood the palate, with only moderate bitterness. Just not very pleasant flavour country. Pass.

12 oz bottle pours amber with a off white head. Aroma of sweet malt and citrus. Taste is malt, citrus and pine. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Amber pour with a white head. Aroma is full of bread, perfume, grass and toffee. Flavor is similar with a lot of flower and perfume notes from the hops, as well as some sweet toffee and a little bit of pine. Low bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Came in with the notion that this would suck ass. Recieved a bottle as a gift and it has no aroma, but hte flavor i a weak, but serviceable ipa.

Love e label and the name, but the brew is very average. Not a bad beer, but nothing about it stands out and there are some major flaws.

pinkie (470) - New York, USA - FEB 17, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 18, 2013 Pours murky brownish amber with some bold and brawny foam that won’t fall down. I had to wait to taste it. Citrus hops nose with carmel malt, some floral some apple in the back and medicinal alcohol. The nose is not real big. Taste is both sweet and bitter. Alcohol on the palate and a rubbery taste that I couldn’t quite get into. I kept wondering what went wrong? Went down dry but tasted like pencil erasers and didn’t fade well. I would pass on this next time.

I agree with others here, this brew is decent, but not great. Lacks hoppy aroma and taste. Drinkable, not one of the worst ipa’s I’ve had.
