A-Pours a murky copper color with a slight head. Bits of lacing.

S-Nothing that really stands out here. Modest notes of grapefruit, pine and herbs.

T-Zesty grapefruit and grass with pine. Just a run-of-the-mill flavor here. The flavor is noticeably stronger than the nose. Caramel malt.

M-Fairly bitter with some decent body behind it.

O/D-Not my favorite interpretation of the IPA. The flavors work but don't suit me as well as others. The can looks great and I wouldn't be opposed to having this again. Didn't love it though.

Appearance: Poured a deep orange, copper into my IPA glass with nice lacing and a thin sudsy whitish head.

Smell: Grapefruit, with some piney hops as well but I would put it closer in aroma to an English IPA than an American IPA.

Taste: Very solid with citrus fruit flavors including grapefruit, and a bit of pine from the hops. I'm tasting cascade in here for sure and I'm guessing it is complemented with some English hops as well, not too bitter.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with solid carbonation and a nice kick. Not too bitter, especially for a beer labeled an American IPA.

Overall: This is a very solid offering from Foolproof and a decent twist on the American-style IPA. Not overly hoppy or bitter and I think this is what they are going for. This is perfect for hanging out in the backyard and something I could and would drink a few of. I will definitely have this again.

poured from a can in a pint glass. it pours a one finger head that dissipates quickly, no lacing.

appearance has a light cloudy golden color

I don't get a really hoppy smell, despite being advertised

it has a real bitter taste, very earthy.

mouth feel is smooth, very low carbonation, if any. don't seem like an ipa with 6% abv

overall a nice refreshing beer that is not heavy and I would drink year round.
