Paid $7.99 for a six-pack; I thought the label had a great old-timey feel to it and it intrigued me enough to try it. This was a good but not great beer. There was enough flavour and bitterness for it to be an assertive IPA, but there was nothing distinct or "signature" about it, like the signature tastes of Sierra Nevada Torpedo Extra IPA, or Ballast Point's Sculpin IPA. There was a "nice" IPA; made to style and tasty, but it lacked the "X" factor that would have made it stand out on the already overcrowded shelves.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a 14 oz "pint" glass. Pours a reddish amber with a white head that has lots of staying power. Smells of floral and citrus hops nice aroma. Tastes of floral and citrus hops, but a tad watery. Beer is heavily carbonated but is still very drinkable. Overall, an above average beer.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

12-oz bottle into Belgian ale glass

A - 4-finger off-white head over a cloudy body of golden/orange; head sticks around leaving a nice trail of lace

S - floral and citrus

T - floral and citrus notes, wheat bread in the background, nice hop bitterness, bone-dry finish

M - light/medium body, medium/high carbonation

O - It has a good taste, but not remarkable. Also it could use more body.

Not much hops here for an IPA, mostly malty sweetness. Leaves an almost sugary stickiness feel in your mouth. There are some nice spicy, apple notes and it most certainly has a full body, but it just doesn't ring true to an IPA. Plain ale, perhaps.
Not a bad beer, its just that I'm a hop-head and love a good IPA.
