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!

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.

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.

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.

Nice IPA with slight bitter aftertaste but nothing that lingers through the first half of the beer but starts to build up residual bitterness over time. Overall aroma is flowery with a strawberry undertone and a toffee like characteristic. Amber in color and nice head that disappears within 10 minutes.

C. A little clear, very small amount of cloudiness
H. Amber
N. Very strong hoppiness, and a hint of Lodge Fries
(To experience our numerous comments about Lodge Fries, please visit The Lodge Boca located at 200 S. Federal Highway, Boca Raton, FL)

I don't like to compare beers but this really does sorta taste like Lost Coast Indica on initial taste and then it mellows out and has a bit of a burnt taste to it...wait for it...then a minute later a strong bitterness hangs around...IMPRESSIVE. As most of you know I love myself some hops and this beer is about as much of a West Coast IPA as you can get. The head is an off white and quite thick....Sexy Head!!! The nose of this beer is huge. Dos put it in front of me and I could smell it from the tasting table. I would easily drink this one again...GREAT JOB FCB!

3.43/5  rDev +1.5%

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.

3.43/5  rDev +1.5%

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.

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.

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.

3.58/5  rDev +5.9%

Pours hazy amber orange with off white head that has excellent retention and side lace.
Floral citrus hops abound. Big estery alcohol within the semi pungent hop aroma, not alot of malt noted.

Taste & Mouthfeel: Full bodied. Hop bitterness is there, pungent and piney with a dry finish. Lots of warming alcoholic esters, hints of diacetyl. Citric tones influence the palate. Finish has lots of hop flavour and is both extremly dry and bitter.

Notes: A typical American brewed IPA. Good drinking if you like lots of hops, IMO a bit off balance.
