I'm surprised that this beer has such low scores on BA. It must be one of these things where people's expectations re IPA are getting the better of them. It is an attractive enough copper/amber beer with a nice frothy head. The smell is definitely a weak point (maybe they could throw in some more aroma hops), but the taste is mild has a nice malty sweetness balanced with some mild citrusy and resiny hops. The smooth, medium-bodied, mildly-carved mouthfeel is definitely one of the highlights. The sweetness does get a bit cloying beat the end, but a lot of IPAs suffer from that syrupy malt-syndrome. Not every IPA needs to be a bitter hop bomb. This is definitely not the greatest beer that I've ever had, but is a decent drinkable take on the IPA.

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.

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.
