3.26/5  rDev +2.2%
look: 4 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - A swirling cascading pour yields slightly more than two fingers worth of crisp slightly whipped light khaki colored head that forms a slightly rocky top as it settles... Excellent retention... The color is deep moderately dark medium gold... Still with no discernible carbonation... A bit of lacing clings to the glass...

S - Subdued all the way around... A mix of pale and toasted malts... Some caramel sweetness... Some doughy bread malt... The hops are truly missing in action on the nose... There is also a slightly odd soapy note buried beneath the surface...

T - As expected the malt base dominates the palate... Caramel... Biscuit... Caramel... Biscuit... Repeat... While it's not a bad start, there isn't much more going on... The finish slightly hopped and there is a slightly off soapy quality to the finish...

M - Medium bodied... Lightly carbonated... Goes down easily enough... Crisp... Clean...

D - Drinks much more like a subdued American Pale Ale rather than an IPA, but it's not a terrible beer by any stretch... It's simple... It's straightforward... It's unpretentious... This one is a the poster boy for average...

1.64/5  rDev -48.6%
look: 2 | smell: 3 | taste: 1.25 | feel: 1.25 | overall: 1.25

Being from Michigan I'm surrounded by fantastic IPA's, I was actually somewhat excited when this arrived in a BOTM subscription I'd won for free. Unfortunately, it was awful.. Without better words to express my feelings for this beer.. It was a jumbled mess of clashing crap that turned out like crap.

It did however look and smell halfway decent. I'd rather have a Bud light.

3.19/5  rDev 0%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

A. It has a dark reddish-brown color with a one-finger foamy white head and some lacing. Some bubbles can be seen. Fully opaque.

S. It has a roasted hop scent.

T/M. It has a dark fruit hoppy taste to it. There's a grape and a caramel sweetness and tartness to it. Fairly smooth with a bit of a celery calm to it.

O. It's a very basic IPA. It has a slight hop taste but more fruity. Descent but nothing special.
