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

Enjoyed at the brewery on tap. Poured into a pint glass. A nice orangish amber with a beige head. Nose has sweet candy malts and floral hops. Similar flavor profile. Medium body is well carbonated and drinks easy enough. No real distinguishing flavors here though. Not bad, but lacks the explosiveness and freshness I like in an IPA.

My kids got this for me for Father's day because they liked the elephant on the label.

12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

Cloudy, amber color with a nice white thick head that dissipated fairly quickly. Strong bitter taste but not overpowering. Good beer.

12oz bottle. Only bought a six pack from Sister's Mexican restaurant tamaqua pa.

Pretty average IPA. Decent hop flavor but I'm not finding the floral hops. More of a burnt hop flavor. Unless this was an old brew, I didn't see brew or expire date. Fair amount of malt flavor also.
Not a bad IPA but not one I would go out of my way to purchase again.

A pretty decent IPA. Apperance and smell are average and standard for this type. Taste and mouthfeel seem a little less than average for me. Packs plenty of "hop" but just normal for me. Overall, good to try but i'm not running out to buy more. Cheers!

3.43/5  rDev +0.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - Deep copper with lighter oranges and ambers at edges. Thick off-white head both builds and disappears rather quickly, but does leave a small foamy island. Some wispy, patchy lacing is left behind.

S - Comes across as your average IPA. Nothing disrespectful meant by that. Just straight piney and floral hops. Seems to be a decent maltiness to balance it out.

T/M - It is in fact fairly well balanced. A subtle malt base makes itself known before the hops take over. Again, piney and floral without being overpowering. Leaves a lingering citrus rind aftertaste. Medium-bodied with good amount of carbonation.

O - No solid complaints, just nothing that stands apart. Always find Dwayne's more creative offerings a little more interesting.

Pours a hazy, copper color. 1/4 inch head of an off-white color. Decent retention and decent lacing. Smells of hops, hint of sweet malt, and licorice?. Fits the style of an American IPA. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of hops, sweet malt, caramel malt, and licorice. Overall, the licorice is an unpleasant part of this beer. I'm not sure if this is an intended part of the beer or not, but it did not lend itself well.

4.13/5  rDev +21.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance - Copper like a new penny. Nice white head raises to two fingers then settles into a nice white ring on the glass leaving great lacing through out.

Smell - Floral. Citrus and some grains.

Taste - Nice hop bite without being too big. Very good thirst quencing or palate cleansing IPA. Strong hop presence but not boisterous or over the top.

Mouthfeel - Solid. Good carbonation and nice full bodied feel.

Overall - I found this to be a totally drinkable IPA. It's not going to get the "hop heads" all revved up but it's a great beer for a steak or a pizza.

Took a trip down to Colorado Springs last week, mainly to visit this brewery. Had this one on tap in the tasting room. Poured a medium amber color with a decent white head. Aromas of chai tea, earthy hops (very outdoor-sy smelling). Medium bodied, with flavors of caramel and earthy hops with a long, bitter finish.

Pours a nice amber color with a little off white foamy head. Aroma is distinct with hops and maltiness about equally apparent. Tastes of a lot more malt than I would expect. Lacks some of the hoppiness I would hope for from an IPA. Mouthfeel is very goo and finishes smooth.

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

A: Deeper brown, with a bit of an orange hue.
S: Average for an IPA - maybe even a bit more subtle.
T: Good, solid. Not too heavy or strong.
M: Nice mouthfeel - I liked this beer.
D: Good beer for a tailgate - nice and solid. This isn't the type of beer that you would fill you after one. Solid American IPA.
