From a can.Nero55 (950) - Nevada, USA - JUL 12, 2014
The beer pours a hazy orangish gold with a good head and nice lacing on the glass.
The aroma is a little sweet with some grassy & citrusy hops.
The flavor is nice enough, sweeter and more malt forward than I usually like my IPAs to be. The bitterness balances this to a degree and it’s got some nice spicy and fruity hop character.
Not really my style of IPA, good enough though... I’ve had worse from "cooler" breweries.
Pint Can. Copper with small off white head. Aroma of resinous and pine hops with some malt notes. Medium/full body, medium/heavy hop bitterness with a nice creaminess, but not much of a malt backbone. hershiser2 (3886) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - DEC 26, 2017
Bottle with many thanks to Drake! Pours orange-amber with a large off-white to beige head. Aroma is citrus, resin, black tea, caramel. Flavor is a strange combination of honey-roasted oats and citrus, soap, pine, caramel. I guess it's not strange, but the first sip was odd and unexpected. Long lingering bittersweet finish. madvike (3308) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 24, 2012
Bottle - Pours lightly hazy light amber with a huge fluffy off white head. Light citrus/herbal hopping on the nose and a bit of lightly toasted malt. Balanced. Taste is roughly the same, with a hint of nuttiness. A touch of mineral, and not much hoppiness, even through the finish. Light bodied, a little slick, and nice carbonation. Pretty subtle, but very balanced. Frank (4265) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 7, 2012
This is a nice IPA that tastes and drinks pretty good but doesn’t have anything particularly compelling going on in the aroma. The texture is a high point, nice and creamy w/ gentle carbonation. Overall, it’s forgettable but I’d say it’s better than most forgettable beers.

Single bottle from Binny’s Build-a-Six rack. Nice copper IPA color with a thick, slightly orange-ish head. Slightly citrus and pine hop smell. Taste is up front with hop bitterness.After a thousand IPAs, it gets hard to say what makes one different from the other, but this does have a slightly larger malt backing, even if it does support a pretty standard hop balance. But as a year-round beer, you can’t expect too many non-repeatable variations. jmcgavin12 (492) - Madison, USA - MAR 30, 2013
Pours orange and bursting with hoppy citrus and grass. A faint head that doesn’t stick around too long. The taste is complex with both sweet and bitter grapefruity notes. Finishes bitter and delicious BBB63 (6567) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUN 26, 2013
Can from Joe and served in my GI IPA tulip: Pours an amber hue with a great lasting head and above average lacework. the aroma has very light dankness, some citrus and pine along with plenty of bready and caramel malt notes. A bit soapy as well. The taste is restrained bitterness, light candied fruit and some toasted bread with slight sweetness from crystal malts. The mouth feel is smooth and quaffable. Really a tad underwhelming in this day and age of rip ur face off IPA’s... more akin to an APA than IPA. BVery (11494) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - SEP 14, 2013
Can. Slight haze, orange copper pour with a foamy head. Citrus and floral hop, some caramel sweetness. Bitterness is moderate. Not bad. jmagnus87 (3302) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - JUL 13, 2014
Draft. From notes. Grass and grains, slightly earthy hops. Slightly bitter taste. Meh, it’s ok.
