2.53/5  rDev -15.9%

A: This poured a clear dark gold with moderate white head.
S: It smelled like sweet caramel and sticky toffee, with a little honey biscuit.
T: It tasted like caramel and earthy biscuit malt, with a little sweet honey. It had a dirty sweet aftertaste.
M: It was watery with moderate carbonation. Decent body.
D: This was a terrible IPA. The scent and taste were more like a brown ale. The body wasn't great either, and the finish wasn't very clean. All around poor brew.

2.65/5  rDev -12%

Poured nice into the pint glass. Doesn't have the mouth feel of an IPA. Has a bit of a metallic aftertaste, but I've had much worse. It'll get you drunk. Have it with something salty. The marketing is probably the main reason people try this one at all. Overall, it's underwhelming. As it was on sale, I'm not too broken up about buying it. Wouldn't bother with it again.

2.98/5  rDev -1%

Appearance - nice looking golden/orange pour, a finger of stick and creamy foam. Nice legs as well. A touch cloudy, otherwise pretty nice!

Aroma - soapy, hoppy, some caramel, a solventy thing going on. Not bad, just starts out busy and ends up mostly caramel.

Taste - citrus, mango perhaps. Sweet malts, seemingly a bit unattenuated or some sugar added after fermentation? A little breathy/solvent again with the alcohol, tastes boozier than the 6.9% would suggest. Alcohol heat in the finish, disrupting what should be a nice drying bitterness.

Mouthfeel - very bubbly and burp-inducing. Medium body, decent smoothness.

Overall - purchased after seeing on the shelf so many times. with the competition in this style, not one I'd repeat.

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.

3.16/5  rDev +5%

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a Shaker pint glass.

APPEARANCE: pours a clear amber color with 1 finger head that dissipated into a thin layer of bubbles that lasted throughout, moderate lacing.

SMELL: flowery and sweet honey, a little pepper.

TASTE: sweet honey, then a mild hop profile that is somewhat metallic tasting, the alcohol 6.9% is well hidden.

PALATE: medium carbonation and medium body.

OVERALL: this beer looked and smelled better than it tasted. It was drinkable but I would definitely not buy this again.

3.11/5  rDev +3.3%

Thick, creamy, frothy head sitting atop a hazy, amber-colored body. Wet hay and overripe fruit smell. The taste strongly comes across as grapefruit; sour, tart, bitter. Medium bodied; coarse feel; dry.

Another beer that doesn't live up to the initial appearance and scent. Harsh and unbalanced flavors, a bit metallic, sporting some diacetyls and phenols in the mix. Starts strong in appearance, but taste and mouthfeel don't live up to the promise.

3.01/5  rDev 0%

Clear amber colored ale with a tall white colored head.

Smells herbal and mainly of tobacco. Strong tea and faint wood.

Starts out dry and woody. Mildly bitter. Little bit of tobacco taste.

Mouthfeel is OK.

Overall pretty basic no brand IPA. Don't expect much from this one.

Appearance-Nice goldenCopper hue, head foamed nicely, with some lacing, not overly carbonated, lost the head a little too soon

Smell-faintly hoppy, with a clean, almost outdoor scent. Fresh

Taste- Not bitter up front, but a little a the back of the tongue and throat. Very pleasant, not overly done.

Mouthfeel-bright and crisp, just right amount of carbonation,

Overall, an average middle of the road IPA, handles spicy foods well, with a good cleansing affect.
I am not a huge IPA fan but I would order this one again…especially by itself.
