Excellent IPA. Unusually mild, understated. Some hops but almost creamy. Great flavor. Would drink several, hope our paths cross again soon.
"what started out as a generic kit malt type beer turned out a drain pour. no redeeming qualities here. i bought it hoping for a diamond in the rough at 2.50 but it sucked. that is all." Nickytoethumbs (12) - - NOV 6, 2013
Not too shabby. Pretty good small production beer. It is not overly hoppy, but not like water. A good balance.

A - Pours a copper brown. 2 finger billowy head that settles into a nice ring. Great lacing patterns.
S - Caramel malt, earthy grains, tiny bit of citrus, not picking up much else. A faint nose on this one.
T - Roasted caramel, burnt grains, stale earthy hops adds a rough bitterness. Very thin and watered down. Very vague citrus on the finish.
This beer tastes like they used old leftover hops and just tastes old. Appearance is good but has a very faint nose. The small amount of hops provides an abrasive but mild bitterness with no hop flavor. It lacks flavor in every category. I’d pass on this one.

Big bottle from BevMo split with the missus. By Hermitage of San Jose according to the label. Clouded bronze with a fine low head. Aroma of sick, peach Soothers, Smarties, fig jam: yeast and malt. Pleasant figgy sweetness; dirty Belgian yeast, ash flicks, apple peel. Weirdly hopless but OK IPA. DedicatedToFun (4000) - Santa Monica, California, USA - SEP 1, 2012
Decent IPA, better than all these negative ratings...................................

Big mouthfeel (creamy?) not really balanced out by either bitterness or alcohol or acidity (although unusual, for an ipa, orange notes come out). Almost a summer ale. eyes_wide_shut (107) - Haifa, ISRAEL - MAR 24, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 15, 2012 At a tasting in Nimrod Rosenblatt house in Haifa during a blind tasting, bottle, pours cloudy amber color without head, very sparkling, citrus fruits and hoppy aroma, moderately sweet and light moderately bitter taste, medium body, dry and bitter aftertaste, overall an excellent beer, although the taste is slightly disappointing relative to the aroma. coldbrewky (1730) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - FEB 2, 2012
Deeper amber in glass. Steady carbonation. Nose is overpoweringly sweet with an outer tang of hop. Body is overly sweet as well and cloying. fading hops. Bean counters or penny pinching brewers made this hop addition too skimpy to be called an IPA. One dimensional. Poured half down drain. fonefan (49568) - VestJylland, DENMARK - NOV 24, 2011

Clear medium yellow orange colour with a average to large, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white to white head. Aroma is moderate to heavy malty, toasted, caramel, moderate to heavy hoppy, grass, fruity, dsuty hops. Flavour is moderate sweet and light moderate bitter with a average to long duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. 
Bottle, 22oz. It pours an almost clear body, golden in color and with a minimal off-white head. Some citrus and peaches on the nose, but a bit weak I think. Some maltyness too. It has a nice bitterness, with flavors of peaches, citrus peel and some caramel maltyness. Full-bodied and nicely carbonated. Some bitterness in the end, at least enough to prevent it from being on the malty side. A decent beer for sure, but I’d like it more pronounced. 111105
