Pours an orange color with a slight haze. White head and a bit of lace. In the nose, bright grapefruit and orange hop scents and some biscuity malt.

The taste is very bitter and citric, which is in trademark IPA fashion. The malt base is caramel like and a bit toasty. Hoppy grapefruit, pith, and pine are all in full force.

Medium bodied, well carbonated feel. Overall, this is a pretty decent IPA. I'd say par for the course.

Perfect clarity on this one. Nice amber brown color. Flavor is okay. Kind of an odd off-taste. After all this talk on the forums about quality concerns, I wish I knew how to better describe what I was experiencing. Anyways. It's a decent IPA. Doesn't seem quite right to me. Oh well. On to the next.

Paid $3.75 for the single. Feel I got ripped off since this is from PA...

A - A very dirty brown color, murky and kind of old ale looking with floaties. Head is pretty good a 1/4 inch that sticks around for a bit. Great lacing.
S - Earthy hops not very bitter smelling. Mostly malty so it could be old.
T - Not bad it's pretty balanced and somewhat bitter but it seems lacing like a pale ale.
M - Relatively smooth light to medium. Easy to drink

Overall their are better cheaper DIPA's I would rather have that are equally as smooth. Pick this up if your paying around 2 bucks for it.

T - Earthy, and spicy hop flavor in this, some grass a little pine, grapefruit.
M - A little wattery but easily drinkable.
O - Decent IPA, would go good with pizza, just kind average.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a brownish/orange color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of citrusy hops. Taste is not nearly as hoppy as the smell. It is well balanced, more caramel malts than I expected, some hop bitterness, very easy drinking. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall us a solid beer.
