2.18/5 rDev -38.6%
Appearance - Gold in color Hazy even after it warms up. One finger white foam, good lacing hangs in there
Smell - smells bitter and sweet, not pleasant
Taste - The hop flavor and malt flavor don't complement each other bitter and sweet
Mouth feel - smooth and the right amount of carbonation.
Overall - I've tried a ton of IPA's most of which I enjoyed immensely, this is definitely the exception.

2.78/5 rDev -21.7%
12 oz bottle. Pours hazy copper amber with a big fluffy white head that retains well and laces the glass.
The aroma is tropical fruits and resiny hops and some sweet biscuit malt.
The flavor is sweet biscuity toffee malts with a little tropical fruit and a decent amount of bitterness but not a lot of flavor from the hops. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and a bit watery with smooth carbonation.
Overall, an OK IPA.

2.8/5 rDev -21.1%
Bottled on date hard to read but I think it says 3/6/13.
Appearance: Golden orange and hazy to the point of being opaque. One finger frothy off-white head.
Aroma: Not much there besides a touch of biscuit and some sweet tangerine.
Taste: Quite watery at first sip. At 5.5% ABV I wasn't expecting a super robust IPA but this is a tad underwhelming. Starts with a moderate bitterness that continues throughout. However, there isn't any hop flavor which I was looking forward to given the description on the bottle. The malt flavor comes in about halfway through and contributes a sort of freshly baked bread/yeasty taste. Overall the flavor is like a wet blanket on the palate (figuratively).
Mouthfeel: Just under medium in body and barely carbonated. Easily drinkable but not a vibrant enough mouthfeel to be enjoyable.
Final Thoughts: There were no off-flavors or anything to suggest a bad bottle, but Miracle didn't deliver the flavor I expected. The bland nature of the beer is it's downfall. Would I drink it again? Unlikely.

The pour is orange in color with a white head. Smells like candied oranges, sugar, and caramel. Not much else going on here. Super sweet flavor. Some tangerine, candied oranges, floral hops and a mild pine. Tons of sugar, caramel, and bread. This is just not good.

22oz bottle with Bottled 5/12 on the side. Pours a cloudy dark orange with very little head. Some lacing. Aromas of some citrus and caramel malts. Somewhat bready. The flavor is a small amount of citrus and floral hops with some caramel malt. Orange peel at the end. Has somewhat of a cereal flavor. Not all that bitter. Light and crisp. Alot more malt than hop flavor. Overall, meh.
