look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured a clear amber body with a one finger foamy white head and light carbonation bubbling up. Overall impression of appearance is of an IPA, true to form. Scents of tropical fruit, grapefruit zest, tangerine flesh, medium-light vegetal hops and some light earthy dank aromas and pale malt sweetness. Overall impression of aroma is of a fairly typical West Coast IPA, not bad, not the most exciting aroma, but a solid take on the style. Flavor begins moderately bitter with notes of earthy, dank, vegetal hops, tangerine flesh, light amounts of grapefruit and a lightly sweet pale malt backbone. Middle continues with vegetal and dank hops dominating and a slight flavor of preserved orange peel and some moderate citrus peel. Finish is moderately bitter with notes of vegetal hops with an onion-like quality, bitter hops and some light floral hop flavors and a pale malt backbone. Aftertaste is biscuity malt, a light hop bitterness and some citrus peel. Overall impression of flavor is of a nice dank IPA. It has more earthy and vegetal flavors than bright ones, with a solid malt backbone. Not bad. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation and a resinous, sticky feel. Overall impression of mouthfeel is of a good IPA, nothing off. Overall this is a fairly good standard IPA. It has a nice vegetal, earthy quality with just enough bright fruit and malt to balance. A good IPA.

Good and more complex than the mojo. More malty. It was a great surpise beer in their mixed 12 pack but I think I would buy a different 6/4 pack if I was looking specifically for an ipaipa

Love the color of this beer. Not too dark and not as light as a lighter beer. A nice golden brown color. Has a solid lemony/pine taste to go along with it. Overall a great beer.

Excellent smell and taste. The taste has a nice bitter citrus aftertaste, really enjoyed it!

This is an odd tasting beer. It has a strange aftertaste that reminds me of an american adjunct lager, which is not what you want in an IPA. Was really hoping for more...

Had this off a nitro tap at Park in Cambridge, MA so the review was pretty much driven solely by feel, but a great way to enjoy a middle of the road IPA, so smooth.

Smelled of old hops. Might have been a bad bottle. 2-3 weeks out from best by date. Grainy. Not my style ipa. Rather disappointed overall

I've tasted quite a few IPA's, and this one is the top. Very nice aroma and color. The first sip is an avalanche of flavor and has an excellent finish.

A - A golden/honey color, almost no visible carbonation, 1/4" soapy head, larger bubbles, settles to a bubbly film on surface, good lacing
S - Grapefruit,
T - Moderate hop with light bitter; I typically don't like big bitter, but this one was about right for me and didn't linger on forever
F - Nice body, not thin or watery, low-medium carbonation
O - I'm typically not a huge IPA fan, but this one was actually ok, or, I'm just getting used to IPAs since I keep trying them.

Pale golden yellow lighter than most IPAs

Somewhat sweet aroma

Taste similar to smell however unpleasant aftertaste

Feels nice, like most IPAs

Overall decent I wouldn't go out of way to recommend

Bought 6 pack of cans, drink by date 2 months from now. Poured into glass, nice looking beer, light orange glow with 1/2" head. Nose was sweet caramel with subtle grapefruit, stone fruit/grape must aroma. Smooth, sweet mouthfeel, light bitterness at first that lingers with a light dry finish. Nice beer but I get the feeling the ones I am tasting are a bit aged despite the best by date. Oxidation?

A: slight haze; light amber; 1 finger ivory head that receded to an uneven cap; nice lacing;

S: grassy, earthy, a little floral; grape nuts; a little graham cracker;

T: more floral than anything; the flavor sort of dies at mid-palate and you're left with low to moderate bitterness with a bit of sweetness to the finish;

M: medium bodied; moderate carbonation;

O: flavor was a little disappointing;

This was the beer that really got me into crafts. Off the tap it was amazing. Found it on nitro once before but it wasnt the same. Tried it in bottles and cans since then and, while its still good, still doesnt match the first taste from the tap. Guess Im going to be chasing the dragon.

Perhaps it was just a bad batch, but it tasted like pure metal. The whole thing. I had to force it down... Narrowly avoided the drain.

Pours a bright orange/yellow with an off white head that trails the glass. The smell is full of both bread and grapefruit citrus notes. The taste is all about the hops though with full hop grapefruit flavor in the beginning and then mellowing out to a nice finish. A lingering aftertaste, but it was very nice.

12 oz bottle into a wine glass.

Appearance: Pours a clear amber color. The head is a finger high and white in shade. It has a superbly sticky texture and good retention; the former allows it to leave a nice ring of lacing on the glass. Very aesthetically pleasing. (4.5)

Smell: There doesn't seem to be a significant hop presence here. There is a bit of flowers and apricot coming from the Amarillo hops, but the primary note is a sweet, white bread maltiness (which I prefer to the more burnt caramel/toffee I get from darker IPAs). Actually, there isn't a significant anything to this IPA. I'd reckon the nose about 15% too subtle for its own good, in fact. (3)

Taste: Flavors of nettle, flowers, and apricot hit the palate first. Between the beginning and ending hop flavors (though the latter is more of a bitter finish), there's a pleasant maltiness lurking in the mid-taste. Instead of obstructive toffee, the flavor is closer to sweet bread, or maybe even sugar cookie. Nothing too exciting here, but at least it's not loaded down with crystal malt. (3.25)

Mouthfeel: It's a bit flabby as far as IPAs go: it has a full body and a sweet finish that hinders its ability to go down the palate. Carbonation is somewhat weak...maybe that's why. Luckily, the bitterness gives it some drinkability back. (3)

Overall: This isn't your typical crystal-malt-and-piny-hops IPA; this is more floral, with a lighter (yet still sweet) maltiness. It's still maltier than I prefer, but I think its malt backbone is genuinely likable. I'd gladly give a fresher sample another chance. (3.25)

3.24/5: Not much stands out here, but at least they got the maltiness right

I am really starting to get into IPA's and I thoroughly enjoyed this beer. The citrus flavor was extremely enjoyable, and it goes down pretty smooth. Drank out of the bottle. I enjoyed this a lot.
