Clear amber with a thin, frothy head. Theres something hoppy in the aroma but theres also something of burnt fruit about it, oddly. Doesnt really seem much like an IPA and I dont get much hop in the taste. The overall effect is pretty bland to be honest.

If this had 20% more body it would have been decent. As is, it was dark water with a slight hoppiness. Needs some balls.

Malty bittersweet nose reminiscent of an unspecial ESB. The flavour follows. The vaguest hint of hops in there but really, do these guys have any idea? Basically its a bog standard ESB like a tanglefoot or an abbot and made the worse by a cloying finish and over-carbonation. Poor.

Thisis12ptfont (1121) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - MAR 3, 2013
Unique aroma of rye and dark malts. Deep brownish copper color. Nice, flavorful malts with notes of toffee, brown sugar, maple, oak and caramel. Overall, doesnt taste at all like an IPA but its pretty good. Id give this a C rating.

Amber pour with small soft head. A little spicy but mostly malt with a nice clean bitter finish.

vikingguy (1078) - Chaska, Minnesota, USA - DEC 13, 2012
Copper color with very little head. Sweet caramel malt aroma. Taste - toasted, bisquity malt. Caramel and brown sugar. Grassy hops adds some balance to the sweetness. This is not an IPA but better than I was expecting.

jeremyh70 (1070) - Missouri, USA - JAN 13, 2013
Pours a light brown with little head and dece t lacing. Aroma of grains, biscuit malt. Watery taste of toasted malt, some sweetness, maybe some nuttiness and slight leathery taste in finish. Not much bitterness for an IPA, even an English IPA. Low carbonation. Not very complex or good. Doesn't taste too bad just not much taste at all. Drinkable if you like flavored water as your beer. Wouldn't buy again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

varanid99 (1055) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 6, 2013
Copper pour with a pale brown creamy head. Very little aroma - maybe a little toast? Flavour is biscuity, but watery, little flavour and very little bitterness. Disappointing...a bit bland.

smaynard6000 (1027) - Apopka, Florida, USA - DEC 23, 2012
Pours a sparkling copper color with foamy white head. Aroma is citrusy hops. Flavor is somewhat hoppy but subdued and watery. Little body here and just a tiny bit of bitterness that rapidly disappears in the finish. Mediocre and disappointing.

MrBeerFanatic (1027) - Friona, Texas, USA - FEB 14, 2013
Pours a light clear amber with light orange hues and a frothy head. Aromas of caramel, pine hops, and hints of toffee. Flavors of light bitter hay hops, very light toffee, and light grass. Medium bitter and leaves its bitter bite with bitter and slight grain. Expected more in the flavors from the nose. Smells like a light bock and drinks like a bitter.
