3.13/5 rDev +1%
Can from the Wegmans Dewitt NY for 2$
Appearance - Copper colour with an average size fizzy off white coloured head. There is a low amount of carbonation showing and there is some faint lacing on the sides of the glass. The head lasted for close to 5 minutes before it began to dissipate.
Smell - Malts, caramel, light hops
Taste & Mouth - There is an average amount of carbonation and I can taste caramel and malts mixed with light hops. There is also some roasted/toasted notes and a touch of citrus.
Overall - No date on the can, and I can only hope this is old stock, because it's not very good. This is not really American tasting, more of a English style. Wouldn't buy this again.

1.68/5 rDev -45.8%
A - Pours cloudy orange-amber color
S - Strong Grapefruit
T - Difficult to characterize - rotten grapefruit ?
M - Harsh
O - The flavors must come from the farmhouse side, this does not seem like an IPA.
The only way I could justify my purchase of this beer was to write a review. This beer is god-awful. The first thing that hits you is the initial smell. One reviewer called the smell like it is... "Stay away." But I had to push though to experience the flavor...
It's a flavor reminiscent of rotten grapefruits. If I only knew what rotten grapefruits taste like; I can now imagine. And the aftertaste comes in as that feeling you get after sticking a 9-volt battery on your tongue.
I honestly can't see how this beer hit store shelves. It must be an acquired taste.

12 ounce can -> Samuel Adams Perfect Pint
A - pours up an initial hazy medium amber, with a one finger fluffy head, awesome retention, lots of lacing. The haziness eventually subsides and it becomes clear.
S - not much here. Mostly pine from what I can detect
T - malt forward, dry, yeasty, bit of a mild hoppy finish
M - decent with good carbonation.
O - I have no idea what they were going for with this one. It's not horrible, but there have to be far better choices than this for IPAs.

Served from a can poured into a pint glass
A- Light amber in color
S- Very malty in smell. Hints of fruitiness?
T- Taste follows smell. Malty with little to no hoppy bitterness. Not a terrible taste but definitely not what one would expect from an IPA
M- Not much carbonation(no date on can. Maybe it was allitle old?) and pretty easy to drink.
O- Not the worst beer I've ever had but I'm not sure what they were going for. Its tasted way to malty with little hop flavor to back it up
