I never expect much out of some of these exclusive Kroger brands that show up, I'm pleasantly surprised by this can and the canned 16 ounce pounder cans of the porter as well. First of the appearance is great it looks like a craft brewed IPA the can protects these beers from the light decently very fresh zesty hops come out in the nose. The amber body has a slightly off white head forming thick smells of cluster hops with citrus and which already beats most beers they have offered over the years. Flavor is hoppy in a hop pellet sort of way, but it's approachable and drinkable for all beer drinkers out there. Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied but really flows nicely with a even flowing carbonation. I'm quite impressed that there is enough flavor to keep me interested and it's approachable for all beer drinker's alike.

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

A: Pours a coppery orange color from a tall-boy can...thick, fairly tall (thanks to a somewhat overly aggressive pour) white-ish head with some decent lacing on the glass.

S: Citrus hops and pine up front with a sweet maltiness that follows...not much else going on, but that's not necessarily a bad thing.

T: Piney, citrusy hops that are balanced well with some bready, sweet malts...nothing overpowers, very well balanced...

M: Medium bodied (at best) with a decent amount of carbonation...slight piney bitterness hangs on the palate, ever so briefly.

O: As a hop head, this beer, for my personal tastes, leaves something to be desired. Don't get me wrong, by no means is this a 'bad' beer. In fact, it's pretty damn good, but I found myself wanting just a little more hoppiness with every sip. The artwork alone makes this an interesting brew, definitely would recommend it, but just try and remind yourself that simplicity, when done well, can be very good. Cheers!

A - clear, golden orange with a huge, dense, off white head that has good retention

S - faint citrus and faint pine

T - faint malty presence, faint citrus, some grains, big piney bitterness in the finish

M - medium bodied, some alcohol warmth, well carbonated

This isn't all that bad for a cheap, Kroger-only beer from World Brews. It definitely drinks better from the can than it does from a glass. It has some of what hop heads crave though the flavor isn't all that impressive. This will definitely leave you wanting more, but it was alright to try once.

16oz can poured into wine glass.

Pours light apricot with a very even 1.5 inch white head. Some lacing hanging around after the head vanishes. The aroma is rather light but there is some grapefruit and a wild tropical cocktail mix. The taste is really light. The hops are there, but for an IPA seem rather tame. Quite a watery feel also, almost taste like this should have a lot lower ABV than 6.9%. For what its worth it tastes a lot better out of the can. I picked up a four-pack of tall boys for 6.99, Great price point. I've had a lot worse IPA's for a lot more money. You can pick it up at any Kroger, so in a pinch, for a pool party it works just fine.

The look is nice. It pours clear and ends up with a slight chill haze and lots of clarity, though it just barely leans toward translucency due simply its darker amber-orange color. The yellow-tinted head reaches two fingers and shows a solidness. It's dense and craggy, settling firm once it's dropped to one finger and dropping no more aside from plenty of patchy lacing.
The aroma is mostly fruity, sweet more than bitter with some caramel malts and maybe a bready undertone. Honey is up front and a chalkiness way underneath but there. Citrus is part of the sweetness and a slight pith to that aspect speaks some of hops, but it seems malt-forward on the nose. The smell fades with time.
Bitterness does come forward on the palate with notes of pine and citrus, pith coming in after with a chalkiness that gives a slight astringency in the finish. Why it's so malty in the nose and hoppy (not extremely, by any means) on the tongue is a mystery. The finish lingers with pine, orange peel, and a slight tinge of that astringent note.
Mouthfeel isn't bad. The body is medium, crispness bites firmly, and it starts smooth. The smoothness does fade out in the end as the carbonation turns more prickly.

DieselPunk IPA from World Brews, given as a birthday gift by my big sister as tribute to my love of punk rock music. 80's hardcore punk mainly. ANYWAYS, poured from the bottle into a glass, DieselPunk's got a 2.5 finger thick head, clear medium-brown body, and decent lacing. It looks appealing enough.

I don't smell much of the usual IPA characteristics such as pine or grapefruit scents. More of a zesty,zippy kind of smell.

It tastes bitter, but still just not in the context of a common IPA. This is unique to say the least. I get a zest,zippy taste on my tongue as it goes down. For being 6.9% ABV, it doesn't have a whole lot of alcohol "oomph" to it. Which I like.

Moutfeel is lighter and crisp for the most part. Clean finish. Decent job executed.

Overall a 3.5 for DieselPunk IPA from World Brews. The extra quarter point was added because, I mean, this IS quite a unique brew. It wasn't so different that I would choose it over a more "normal" tasting IPA. I'll get this another time to show my fellow craft buddies that not all IPAs are created equally.
