I am not an IPA guy, so take the following with a grain of salt. I have had the Lucky bucket lager and enjoy it. Those who are dismayed by the color should try the lager. I think it is just the style that this brewery goes for with the malt they use, etc.
A - liked the appearance. Darker than I expected, looks almost like an amber ale. The bubbles cascade consistently from the bottom giving an inviting appearance. Had a good head with a foam that stays on the glass for quite a while.
S - Again, I am not an IPA guy, so the bitter hops are a little much for me. Fairly consistent with this style however.
T - again, not being an IPA aficionado, the taste is on the bitter side for me at the start, but mellows over time.
M - I like that it mellows over time. Some IPAs start strong and stay there. This one lasts in the mouth, but not in an unpleasant way.
D - I am pretty sure I could only take one of these at a time. The hoppy character, which is supposed to be there in an IPA, is just too much for me.
Overall, this did not make me an IPA convert, even though it is one of the smoother that I have tried in the class.

12oz bottle in a tall pint glass.
A- Pours a copper-orange color with a 1-finger white head. The head's quick fade leaves decent lacing. It's hazy with visible carb bubbles and some other floaters.
S- Malty pale ale-like aroma with some pine. The hops make their way. Pretty crisp and fresh.
T- Malt and citrus hops. Some earthy pine.
M- Fresh and smooth. Good malt body, not too sweet . Lasting hop finish.
O- Pretty good drinking IPA that shows it's malts.
