Light pleasant lemony nose with a bit of spiciness. Beautiful looking hazy amber/light amber with nice head and retention. Malty palate starts a bit light on hops, has caramel, then a bit of hoppiness towards the end. More how I like my APA’s then IPA’s, but good. Tmoney99 (14978) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 5, 2011
Bottle. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy white head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate earthy hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate bittersweet flavor with a moderate bittersweet finish of medium duration. rohash (47) - New York, USA - APR 3, 2011
I had to try this $20 IPA . I must say that overall it is not bad. Pours amber with a thin off-white head. Not much aroma. The sweetness is too much for an ipa, overpowering the hops which are detectable but not as strong as an ipa should be. Tone down the sweetness and bump up the hops a tad and this would be a good ipa, can’t complain for the price though. There’s worse ipa’s out there. bigrond (1499) - factoryville, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 18, 2011
This beer was pretty decent. Better than I expected. Another average brew from a below average brewer. NateBarnett (75) - Augusta, Georgia, USA - FEB 10, 2011
Bottle. Pours a murky honey color with a small white head. Aroma is musty and sweet with mild floral and citrus tones. Decent hop bite with sweet citrus and carbonation on the higher end. The mustiness comes through in the flavor as well (reminds me of the Smuttynose IPA), which isn’t a good thing for me. Not a bad brew, but not great.

Copper pour with a small white head. Sharp pine hop aroma, not much else. The flavor is watery with piney hops. Body is thin, pretty disappointing for an IPA. Frank (4236) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 5, 2011
This is a cloudy orange beer w/ a foamy white head. The nose is vegetative hops w/ a bit of pine. There is enough earthy hops to balance the sweetness but this still comes off as a bit flabby and wattery. There is isn’t enough real hop or malt character to satisfy and it’s not dry or light enough to be drinkable. puggy211 (712) - cordova, Tennessee, USA - NOV 14, 2010
Poured a clear gold with a white head that dissipated to the edge. Aroma was slight pine but mainly sweet grains. Flavor also had a slight bitter pine note but sweet bread and grains were the dominate notes for this beer. weitz15 (595) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 23, 2010
Light orange pour, white head. Decent hops and flavor, but nothing bout this stands out over all the other IPAs. Block (3183) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - OCT 21, 2010
Haze orange pour. Citrus and hoppy atoms. A nice lingering bitterness. Overall not bad.
