Golden color with a thin head with short retention.
Mild aroma with notes of pale malt and maybe a light grapefruit.
Flavor with notes of grapefruit, lemon, butter on bread, some oxidation and grass. Dry and bitter aftertaste.
Light to watery body with appropriate carbonation. It is surprising they were able hiding 6.1% under this dress.
That is like a mass version of an IPA, but also meaning I would rather having that than any Adjunct Lager, but it does not kill a craving for a due IPA.

I don't know what exactly this beer is, but it is far from what I would expect an IPA to taste like it. Not very good. Too citrusy for an IPA

Canned 8/8/14. 6.1% ABV per the label.

Pours a murky dark honey orange with a foamy orange-tan head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, and citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with malt, earth, and herbal hop flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of earth and hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is an average beer that smells sort of like an IPA, but the flavors are more like a super malty amber ale or something of that nature.

Serving type: can.
