3.93/5  rDev +14.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

A generally unremarkable but highly drinkable IPA. Pours golden with an aroma of sweet malt and mixed hops. Taste is very balanced between a pronounced hoppiness and a nice counterbalancing, very slightly biscuity malt flavor. While many IPAs are hard on the palate, drinking a few of these wouldn't be difficult. Alcohol (6.8%) is also well-hidden. Very good beer for the price ($11.99 for a mixed 12-pack).

2.73/5  rDev -20.2%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.75

This beer is very affordable, I paid $24 for a case.

The Stegmaier brewery is known for Lion's Head, a truely mediocre beer but very cheap.

I was not expecting much and was pleasantly surprised, better than bad!

There is a slight hint of hops and that familiar IPA bitterness but no hints of citrus or fruit to speak of.

At 6.7% it is a rather potent drink for the price.

Color and smell are good for Stegmaier standards, which isn't saying much.

Something to buy when you want to pretend you can afford to drink IPAs.

2.68/5  rDev -21.6%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.75

Poured from 12ox bottle into standard pint glass.

Coppery coloring, clear, decent head

Smell, well didn't get much at all, just a "beer" smell. Sorry if that's not too helpful.

Taste & mouth was...not good. No hops to speak of, and left that fizzy carbonation feel in the back of the mouth. Wouldn't have thought I was drinking an IPA.

Overall, not something I would recommend, despite the $23 for a case price.
