Strangely malty, even doughy for an IPA. Drinkable. Not a bad beer, just not a very good IPA.

12oz bottle, part of the six-packs they are sold in, exclusively by the local liquor store monopoly chain around here - boo-urns.

This beer pours a clear, bright medium copper amber hue, with three fat fingers of puffy, frothy, and slightly bubbly off-white head, which leaves some layered streaky, sudsy lace around the glass as it duly sinks away.

It smells of bready, doughy pale malt, a touch of caramel sweetness, some Pez dispenser candy fruitiness, i.e. indistinct citrus, a bit more rounded piney leafiness, subtle earthy yeast notes, and a further dank floral hop acridity. The taste is gritty, grainy pale malt, a weakened caramel candy character, mixed and matched orchard citrus, a wet piney leafy bitterness, and further weedy, earthy, and floral hops.

The bubbles are pretty understated in their plain-Jane sassiness, the body a so-so medium weight, and smooth, sure, but with a bit of hop and alcohol intransigence. It finishes off-dry, the tempered, yet still edgy fruitiness kind of running a racket - the grain and bitter hoppiness not in need of applying, as it were.

An adequate version of an American IPA, filtered through a Southern gentleman's idea of what it should be. No real off-flavours, but not really abreast of the best of breed coming out of the West or Northeast coasts right now. Easy to drink, but don't ask me to recall it beyond a week from now.

A: hazy; burnt orange in color; 1 finger ivory head that receded to a thin collar; nice lacing;

S: earthy; sweet malt;

T: somewhat bland; a little malt sweetness up front, then a bit of caramel malt; light bitterness on the finish; no hop profile at all;

M: medium bodied; moderate carbonation;

O: no date on the bottle, so it may have been old; otherwise, this was pretty boring;

Clear Golden amber color with a magnificent fluffy head and amazing lacing that clings for dear life to the sides of the glass. Aroma is of pine, hops and a touch of citrus. Hops, citrus, resin and pine come out with the taste but something is odd. There seems to be an off taste, missing that clean hop bitterness that would be expected with an IPA. Overall, a decent beer, but lacking that extra uumph!!
