Hazy light amber color with ivory foam. Bready, yeasty. pale malt, mild pine aromas. medium body. Stale bread flavors with lightly sweet pale malt, and some dry earthy hops Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - JAN 23, 2013
12oz bottle from Binny’s Lakeview. Pours a clear golden colored body with a finger-width, dense and foamy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a soapy lacing. Aroma is somewhat sweet, bready pale malts with a decent floral citrus. Flavor is similar. Sweeter, crackery pale malts with some bread and a fairly bitter floral citrus. Finishes dry, a bit resiny, and somewhat malty sweet before leaving a lengthy aftertaste. Medium-light body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, this isn’t a terrible IPA, but it’s a messy, odd drinking beer. Eh... boxofrane (2559) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 6, 2013
Bottle from total wine in Claymont. Pours clear orange with a medium sized white head. The aroma has malty caramel notes, minor citrus. The taste is earthy and malty and hardly resembles an ipa at all. Not good gururyan (728) - Stillwater, Oklahoma, USA - JAN 1, 2013
Poured from bottle, not much life to this one and tasted more like a diet pale with melted ice cubes.

Orange with a strong haze. The flavor starts out with some Strong Floral Hops, Resin and Yeasts. As the beer warms up, it takes on more of a caramel/malty characteristic that gives it a sweeter flavor. Flavor is a bit heavy with some mild carbonation and feels like watery molasses. It’s a decent IPA with a sweet flavor if you allow it to warm up, which alone is worth checking out.

This beer has a good pour with a nice head and lots of lacing, but after that, it all seems to go downhill from there. The smell is old and stale, and the taste is tart and tangy. Overall, this beer is poor and I would not recommend it. alcaponejunior (445) - Texas, USA - SEP 17, 2012
Tan and clear with a few small rising bubbles and a fluffy white head with some staying power and pretty good lacing.
Biscuit and floral aromas, not terribly hoppy for an IPA, I’m getting more caramel malts than hops really.
Flavor follows right along. It’s biscuit and caramel malty, with a decent woody piney hops crispness and lightly spicy bite to it.
Could use a touch more carbonation. Light to medium bodied. Slightly slick, alternately sweet and hoppy aftertaste.
It’s probably more of a pale ale to me than an IPA. Not bad, certainly plenty drinkable, but not an especially outstanding IPA. Re-package it as a pale ale and i bet the ratings go up. dwm1034 (785) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 9, 2012
Bottle from Binnys...sampled on 9/6....mild nose; pours a cloudy orange; taste is mildly bitter....overall a B-/C+....okay IPA rangerred (989) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - SEP 7, 2012
12oz bottle into a pint glass.
Pours a slightly hazy copper-orange with a one finger off white head. Just a little bit of lacing.
Aroma of citrus hops along with a little bit of dark bready malt. Some spicyness to the aroma as well.
The flavor is pretty middle of the road for in IPA. Citrus hop notes fairly well balanced by bready maltiness. There is some biscuit in there along with perhaps a touch of rye spice. Bitterness is moderate for an IPA leading to a clean finish.
Overall, a drinkable beer but nothing really makes it stand out. Worth drinking if you find it but not something I would go out of my way for.

Not terrible, but not great either. A middle of the road beer in almost every way. Subtle, unoffensive aroma, slight pine. No real bitterness, no astringency, but a mild, almost caramel character.
