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: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

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.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.25

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.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

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.

2.98/5  rDev 0%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 2.5

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.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 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.

Never heard of these guys, but apparently they’re the same brewery that produced Big Flats (AKA the Walgreens beer). Here’s hoping we get a little more quality than that!

A: Translucent, burnt-orange body, topped by a fizzy white head with almost no retention. Lots of lacing, though, appearing in globs around the glass.

S: Honey and fruity cereal grain, with a character that’s dimmed like an IPA that’s been on the shelves for too long. Hop scents are interesting, though, with a minty overtone and subtle lemon-lime.

T: Bitter with a certain smack of medicinal astringency, with tastes of tea, basil, pine, and brine; intense, but not entirely palatable. Malts, though they’re a large part of the palate, contribute mostly artificial caramel and honey flavors with a crisp note of toasted white bread. Finishes peppery and dry with an unfortunate note of stale grain.

M: Goes down slick, but with decent heft to the body. Light carbonation.

O: Decent, mildly palatable beer – might be good to give to someone just getting into craft. Both the malt and hop profiles seem off, but the overall palate isn’t that offensive.
