Quite frankly one of the worst beers I've ever had the misfortune of drinking. It looked nice after the pour and went downhill immediately after that. Tasted awful, just flat out awful, to the point that it almost hurt my tongue and throat to drink it.

Pours a very cloudy, dark golden orange color with tangerine edges and a one finger, frothy white head that slowly settles into a lasting ring. Streaks of soapy lacing left behind.
Earthy hop aroma with a strong grass/soil presence. Some dirt and pine needle followed by grapefruit, faint citrus and a strong malt backbone. Caramel sweetness with hints of toffee, bread and biscuit.
Medium body wih a strong wheat/witbier character. Tastes more like a hoppy American wheat beer than an IPA. Lots of bready yeast along with zesty spice and a strong lemon presence. Dry, bitter and earthy up front but this is quickly coutered by the peppery spice, bread and zesty lemon peel. There's a strong bubblegum character as well before heavy malts come in on the back end with hints of toffee and caramel sweetness. Astringent with an unpleasant lingering medicinal quality. Very dry in the finish. An odd interpretation of the style with lots of lemon/citrus and wheat beer character clashing with the intensely earthy, dry hops.

Pours out a nice dark oarange non-translucent with a one-finger white head with little retention but a little lacing.
Smell is strange. Maybe a little grassy and some weird smell I just can't put my finger on. It's a little funky. The smell is pretty sweet but not like anything I have ever smelled in an IPA.
Taste is a tiny bit bitter with the strange taste that follows the smell. The taste is better with a little noticeable malt backbone but just not anything I consider a good IPA. This is a strange one or else it is old as I got it as an extra in a trade.
Mouthfeel is about what I would expect with reasonable amount of carbonation.
Overall I would never buy this beer and would not suggest anybody else does either. Just a bad IPA unless it is old.

$4.50 bomber from Abe's.
A hazy bright yellow body, seems like its glowing at the center. Three fingers of pure white foam with bubbles of all sizes. Attractive stretchy lace.
Strong lemon and grapefruit aroma. Somewhat too lemon, it's a little off putting.
An opening note of malt sweetness is washed away immediately by gushing citrus. Lot of lemon with some grapefruit mixed in. Bitter snap at the swallow. Clean finish.
Light plus mouthfeel is satisfactory.
An ok IPA, not one to rush back to, but not so bad to not give the brewery more chances.
