Picked a mix pack in NOLA a few weeks ago. Decided it was time to review this beer.
Poured into my standard snifter, expecting it to some justice to the style and be a bit more floral. Should have stuck with a pint glass.
Appearance is rather mediocre. No real head to speak of. Little lacing with a reddish-orange body that reminds of drunken mornings when I did not drink any water the night before. Blood orange?
Biscuit malts, sweetened orange peel. Hops are muted. I expected something more, but left disappointed. I had this a few years back and the hop presence was more, but this one has no spunk to it whatsoever.
Taste is leaving more as well. Refreshing, though not to the style. Hops are replaced by a sweetened, bready nature that is quite discerning. Enjoyable, but again, I want an IPA. Hops are more present, but add more balance to the malt than accentuate it.
Frankly, if you have to, do it for the sake of trying it. It's a decent bargain for what it is. Not to impressed, but I could see myself ordering it in a bar if I wanted something simple.

The appearance of this IPA is actually quite stunning in a highly carbonated, cheap sort of way. The head was a tower of ivory foam with a dense cap. The body was a glowing, brassy color of copper but it was obscured by a torrent of tiny bubbles that clung to the glass.
The nose presents a strong malt base with caramel, tea leaves and barley. The hop scent is old world floral with hints of lemon, pine and grapefruit.
The flavor matches the scent nearly identically. Strong malt base, maybe tea leaf, with a floral, pine, tinges of lemon and a pithy grapefruit.
The feel is dry but it has almost no carbonated bite, despite the appearance.
Very simple IPA with stronger Pale Ale qualities than hop profile.
