rubbishystuff (2537) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 4, 2016
Thanks to D&S. An old school micro brew IPA, hoppy but not a hop bomb like today’s IPAs. Decent drinkable stuff. rather malty. Serving: Bottle BeerInHeaven (500) - Brillion, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 10, 2016
orange copper with a smallish beige head. aroma is malt and faint citrus. taste is bitter from the start. full mouth feel. some resinous stickiness. But with some definite malt presence. bitter, slightly metallic linger. An OK IPA. portableparty (2398) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - NOV 24, 2015
16 oz. can. Pours golden orange with a frothy white head that settles to thin film and sticky lacing. Aroma is bitter grassy with faint line lemon rind. Taste is bitter grassy lemon lime zest. Palate is thin medium and finishes off putting. weihenweizen (4209) - Charleston, West Virginia, USA - AUG 13, 2015
Refrigerated 12 oz. brow bottle poured into a snifter. Light orange, aroma is light herbal hops, and herbal hops. GranvilleTim (1857) - Granville, Illinois, USA - FEB 17, 2015
Orange-red pour with a light beige head. Aroma is pine hops. Taste is a weaker hop flavor that seems to be more of a pale ale to me. More malty than hops. OK lacing.

The commercial description here doesn’t mirror what the 16oz can says about using OATS. I can taste the oats. it rounds out the malt platform, giving it dominance in this IPA. It skews all of the Hop characteristics bar a few. This really should be updated here to include the descriptors about the oats. Who uses oats to balance an IPA? It seems weird to me but yet it is not entirely bad to drink. It is just different. troyc (2869) - Illinois, USA - FEB 15, 2015
[Bottle] Bright amber color with a quickly receding white head. Nose is of grassy and floral hops. Malty backbone features biscuit and caramel. Astringent hoppiness of grass and pine also make an appearance. Prickly carbonation. Very mediocre. rumproasts (6052) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JAN 24, 2015
bottle. Deep golden with one finger head. Generic IPA. Medium body with moderate hops. Average flavor and bitterness. I’ve had a lot worse, but this has no uniqueness at all.

On the bitter citrus side of IPA’s. Not very malty. Does nothing to stand out and isn’t very well balanced for me. nellycale (213) - Caledonia, Minnesota, USA - JAN 8, 2015
From Bottle. Pours an amber/orange hue with a light beige head. Aroma of caramel, candied apple, orange, slight apricot, earthy tones, and resin. Taste of malt sweetness, grapefruit, honey, pine. Bitter dry finish that sticks around for a while. Then turns citrus and sticks around for a little. Medium body with medium carbonation. Overall, not bad for a malty IPA, but easily forgettable and can think of at least 20 other IPAs I would rather drink.
