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

Pours hazed golden with a thin head that lasts. Some lacing sticks.

The smell of citrus and herbal/spicy hops come through as strong as the bready, caramel-ish malt. Some black pepper from the alcohol mixes in. Mild, but pleasant overall.

The taste is of herbal/floral spicing - with a touch of citrus. Caramel and bready/grainy malt balance it. Alcohol is quite noticeable, though not overbearing, in the finish.

The texture is slightly watery, but bitter taste is not washed out.

It's a more "balanced"/more mild IPA, but still enjoyable. Pretty easy to drink despite some heat from the alcohol. Overall, a pretty solid take on a standard American IPA.

22 oz, no freshness date.

Pours into a large tapered mug with a finger of cream colored foam on top, which settles to a patchy skim with minimal spotty lacing around the edges of the glass. Color is a dark hazy orange, not quite opaque but sufficiently murky. Tiny micro-sediment in suspension when inspected closely.

Faint aromas of caramel malt and citrus peel, fairly textbook.

A little citric orange peel bitterness arrives and lingers a little into the aftertaste. Pale and caramel malts comprise the base of the beer, balancing the adequate hop character. Medium bodied with trace malt sweetness at first, quickly becoming bitter. Overall it's a pretty good IPA, but similar to so many others on the market.

A: Very hazy orange copper, unable to see through it, with a 1-2 finger white head floating on top. Nice lacing on my Duvel tulip. The bottom of the bottle reveals many floaties for this unfiltered IPA.

S: A very subdued aroma. Faint floral, citrus, more malt.

T: Surprisingly there is a big wave of bitter and citrus followed by a nice sweet malt. Finish is pine bitterness. I did not expect this because of the faint nose. Hint of onion like flavor? The more I drink this, the more I enjoy it.

M: Mouth feel is where it should be on an IPA. This one has nice carbonation and a lighter feel with a slight stickiness and overall dryness.

O: I picked this one up out of curiosity because it is a local micro brew that just began bottling their beers. At $4-$5 a bomber it is one I will pick up from time to time as long as I know it is fresh. The bottle was not dated. It is a slightly above average, yet very drinkable IPA that will be nice to have around this summer. I recommend it given it's price.

Served from a can in a Trooper shaker pint glass.

No wake 'til Brooklyn! Anyway, this stuff pours a clear brass topped by a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises light grass backed up by light caramel. The taste holds notes of spicy greens, pine resin, and light dried caramel. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a dry finish. Overall, this was an alright IPA, but the odd spice mixing with the bitterness of the resin just didn't quite do it for me.
