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

Not the worst IPA in the world but by no means the best. The price was right = $6.97 at Whole Pay Check Market

A - clear copper - very little lacing, 1/2" head

S - Citrus-ish, light hops

T - Not bad, a slight bitter hop finish (for some reason I think of Simple Times Lager when I drink this). Easy drinking ale. I would say it's barely an IPA. I'd call this a Pale Ale and hesitate on calling this a classic IPA.

M - Light body

O - Not bad, not great - if you can get it for under $7 then I'd say give it a go.

Props for a cool label

look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Clear pale amber with three fingers of long lasting off white foamy head. Good amount of lacing. Smell is too mild to tell maybe a light whiff of butterscotch. Taste is sweet toasted malt with some dank herbal hops. Mouthfeel is alright with good carbonation. Maybe medium bodied but just barely. Overall if this was an English Bitter or an English IPA I would give it a better rating. It drinks fine and delivers the 6.3% abv. with a bit of stealth. Long mostly dry mildly bitter finish. About two thirds finished it still has a cap of foam and nice rings of lace.
Decent enough beer just don't expect an American IPA. Mine was brewed by World Brewing Rochester New York. Genesee Dundee most likely.

one of the best beers i've ever had. especially delicious very cold. will definitely drink again!
has a very distinct, crispy taste. fantastic with a burger or any other kind of barbeque. i've only had the can so, can't wait to try this stuff out of a bottle.

3.39/5  rDev +10.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a medium coppery amber with a two finger off-white head that dissipates quickly to a thin film, but leaves behind good lacing. Aroma is very malty, bready and caramel malt, faint piney hops. Flavor is more biscuit and caramel malt up front finishing quickly with moderate grassy hops. Medium bodied with active carbonation. A very odd IPA, aroma is closer to a bock in sweet malt intensity, but flavor closer to an amber or or English style IPA (which may well be the brewers intent… perhaps it's misclassified here), with biscuit malt and grassy hops. No off flavors and pleasant enough to drink, but it's not clear to me why an IPA would be a good style for a budget beer. The rapid flavor decline to the finish is a bit of a flaw. As a lunch time sipper, it's more than satisfactory. This would have scored lower if I was sure that the brewer intended an American IPA, which this misses in style.

I haven't written a review in ages, but the weirdness of this beer prompted me to jot a few things down.

I have to admit, I was drawn in by can/artwork and just took a gamble, knowing nothing of this beer's ratings, brewery, or anything. There was my mistake.

From the first whiff, the beer is strange compared to anything that would normally be marketed as an IPA. I'd already regretted the choice based on smell alone.

The taste is where it all falls apart though, since it's disturbingly flat and sweet, exactly what I would never want in an IPA. While I wouldn't say the beer overall is outright terrible, since I did drink a couple to give it a chance, it is definitely not at all appropriate for the style of beer is pretends to be. Mouthfeel is meh, and there really isn't much of a redeeming quality to this one...

It's been awhile since I've been this disappointed in a beer.

look: 1.5 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 1.5

12 oz into a tulip. Muddy amber pour, a finger of head forms above an opaque ruddy body. Strong fruity esters are most prominent on the nose, stonefruit in particular, with caramel malt and boiled vegetal hops behind. Caramel malt and fruity esters overtake the hops on the palate as well, though there's a slight vegetal/herbal bitterness in the finish. Slightly metallic with a hefty body. This is awful.
