look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A - Pours a medium gold with a massive, constantly foaming white head that leaves a decent amount of lacing.

S - Rotten banana, lots of caramel malt and a slight amount of lemon zest.

T - Some rotten banana with a bit of creaminess, along with a small amount of malt and lemon zest.

M - Medium bodied with heavy carbonation. Tastes rotten as it sits.

O - Ehhhh, Sessionable? Nah. Worth trying? Nah. It's very average.

look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

Appearance: Nice golden color, tons of bubbles along the glass and dancing inside…not too much head to speak of, but there is a little canvassing the top layer…(3/5)

Smell: Orange citrus and floral hops, very light and refreshing…grainy and grassy…sweet malts…mild smelling...(2.75/5)

Taste: Nice citrus hops flavor with a malt backbone…grainy throughout, floral tones offset and’s not extravagant in any direction…some bitter after tones, but not too bad…(2.5/5)

Mouthfeel: Light but very bitter…bitter without the hoppy feel…it finishes bitter…(2/5)

Overall: It’s got okay flavor, but the bitterness isn’t balanced well enough to make it something special…this beer is looking for flavor with low alcohol and it definitely accomplished one of these…I’d work on the pale malts and maybe give it a bit more “hmmmff”…(2.5/5)

Got a bottle of this for a dollar bottled in August 2012

A - Quite dark for a session IPA. Sort of hazy amber brown with quite a nice 1/2 inch of fluffy white head.

S - More herbal than I wanted but a nice bittering pine with equal balance.

T - Eh not bad it's simple enough with a mild acidic sort of hop profile that seems watered down. Kind of boring really.

M - Light to medium I question session ability

Overall a very forgettable session IPA not even worth a dollar.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

poured from a can into a sierra nevada pint glass. clear yellow color with 2" on cloudy white head. tons of carbonation

smell is grassy hops, pine, and a touch of butter toffee

taste is mostly bitter hops, with a somewhat metalic finish

mouthfeel is crisp and wet

overall, better than average, and worth a try
