An ok IPA but nothing noteworthy. Pours a crystal clear light copper color. Small to medium sized white head with average retention and some bands of lacing on the glass.

Aroma is mild citrus hops..The more floral Simcoe hops probably provide most of the aroma.

Taste is ok. There is some bitterness there balanced by bready malts. Mouthfeel is a bit weak and watery, Somewhat crisp and bitter, but definitely lacking.

Good thirst quencher but nothing special. (463 characters)

From BeerAdvocate Magazine #91 (Aug 2014):

Orangey, Bitter, Warming, Herbal

What we have here is an IPA that is and even played as the malt foundation is sturdy enough to put up with the varietal hopping of Simcoe, Cascade, and Summit. While you might be familiar with the first two hops the latter is a descendant of an old school variety called Nugget. Smells and tastes like and firm hopped IPA, flavors jump from citrus to tea to blonde tobacco. Worthy of a try for sure.

Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass.
Aroma- Has a strong hoppy aroma with a great citrus addition
Appearance- This is a murky golden color beer with a small white head.
Taste- Great hop flavor with a well balanced citrus follow through.
Palate- A medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation.
Overall- A really good beer, this is the first beer I have had from Champion Brewing and I look forward to trying their other brands. (435 characters)
