12oz bottle served in a standard pint glass.

L - bright copper color with a white head that faded to a thin layer leaving a few thin trails of lacing.

S - floral and earthy.

T - bitterness upfront is met by a shot of malt before going citrus rind bitter on the finish.

F - medium bodied with a smooth, easy drinking feel.

O - on par for a APA but I would have rated lower if this was listed as a IPA.

Got this one out of a smapler pack. Fancy new label on the bottle from the old one. It is now called an IPA from APA

Poured a nice 1 inch head in a pint

Great citrus and earthy tones

Initial pine bite subsides to slight malt then grapefruit on the finish

Not too water not to chewy, just how I like my IPAs

Great IPA I would definitely pick up a 6 pack of this

Pours a clear, amber color. There is slight carbonation that creates a thin white head, but it dissipates very quickly.
Smell is very different. A sweet smell of toffee malts and very little hops. The hops are a nice grapefruit, citrus smell, however.
Taste has a slight citrus hop taste with a good pine taste as well. The whole IPA is balanced by a good toffee malt taste, adding a nice sweetness.
Mouthfeel is a thin IPA. The thinness gives a nice refreshing quality, but also dries out the mouth, making one want another sip.
Drinkability is nice on this beer. Some good tastes that have a good balance. Nothing extraordinary about this beer, but all very good. Don't go out of your way to get it, but definitely a nice find at a party.

Light amber in color with a humble half-inch head that doesn't want to lace as much, but I'm still getting some. Heavy pour hurt the chances. 3.0

Not much of a hop aroma on this one. Some small-time citrus and pine notes that drown in a sweet biscuity malt. Unimpressive. 2.5

Bitter pine bite at the beginning is nice. The pale malts are drier and more attenuated. Leafy tea-like hops finish out the flavor. Some showy bittering hops. 3.5

Pretty drinkable. Carb is spot on, and the body is meaty enough. 4.0

This is clean and easy-going, but a little off-centered for what it is. Such a disappointment in the nose. Taste-wise, it's decent. 3.0

[Best served in a Shaker glass]

The pour was a clear medium orange with a yellow hue and an average sized (1-2 finger) off white creamy head that lasted a little while and had some excellent sheets of lace.

The aroma was almost non-existent, but a tiny bit did happen to come through. It was of a light straw malt and a mild floral hop with a note of caramel and a hint of citrus (grapefruit).

The taste was mildly sweet and a little thin with a hint of caramel in the beginning and finished with a light bitterness and had just a touch of citrus at the end. The flavor faded quickly and was gone in a matter of seconds.

Mouthfeel was extremely light in body and quite watery in texture with a fizzy carbonation.

Overall this brew is super light in taste and body and does not offer much more than being a thirst quencher...

P- Thanks to my buddy Matt for this brew.

A- a light clear amber color with minimal head and cylindrical lacing.

S- bready floral citrus hoppiness. Caramel malts come out faintly but they are hidden.

F- Hoppy floral flavor with bready/caramel maltiness. Not bad but not good.

M- light bodied but the flavors dont mesh as well i was would hope for the APA.

O-It tends to become more watered down as a i progress through the beer but it is a nice APA.

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

Appearance: Poured a nice amber color. Head was moderate in quantity, nice and creamy and reasonably long lived. Lacing was minimal.

Smell: Caramel, bread and a hit of floral hops.

Taste: More caramel malt with a biscuity finish. Some hope flavor up front and a bit, but not a lot of lingering bitterness.

Mouthfeel: On the light side of medium, decent carbonation.

Overall: This was a tough one to rate. IT was a decent beer in the end, but it was nothing like my expectations based on the name. I was expecting a moderate to highly hopped paleish ale, and instead got a more malty, less hoppy amber... Rated against expectations it would probably lose a point to half a point on smell and taste. I instead rated it more on the style it seems to be trying to be.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

Appearance: pours a hazy orange color with a 1/2" head.

Smell: light caramel and a bit of funky wet carpet comes through.

Taste: caramel, some mild citrus, a hint of breadiness, and a bitterness that seems disconnected from the beer.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied. Light crispness from start to finish.

Overall: very unbalanced and non satisfying beer for the style. I had a tough time finishing the pint glass. There are much better APAs out there.

I let this warm some out of the fridge. Poured with an average sized off off white, short lived head and some lace. Color is a clear amber with a couple of slow bubble trails. Aroma is wet grain, malt. Flavor is similar to nose, plus some sweetness and carbonic tang; not much hop. Body is ok and so is carbonation. Finish is like flavor and quite short.

Horney Goat Hopped up 'N horney pours a almost hazy golden color, with very little head. The smell is skunky, and smells like a cheap euro lager. The taste is watery, pale, more malty then hoppy. Not very good carbonation, not too easy to drink, not sure I would like another, leave an offesnive taste. Overall this is just an avoidable one, tastes cheap, I hate to not like these really small brews, but this one isnt good.
