OK, I'm not going to disparage this beer. Suffice it to say that my expectations were low for it, and they weren't met. It poured nicely with a decent head and a dark copper color. However, the nose wasn't there. Even though it was carbonated nicely, the taste was yeasty and unsatisfying. Would I buy it again? I'm sorry to say NO.

2.99/5  rDev +11.6%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

Appearance: Copper colored with moderate foam and lacing.

Smell: Malt, with a hint of hops.

Taste: Sweet malts, with a hint of herbal hops.

Mouthfeel: Watery, medium bodied, and slightly metallic. The only real semblance this has to an IPA is the bitter aftertaste.

The Verdict: Fair. It’s a cheap Trader Joe’s beer, and it’s drinkable. That’s about the best I can say about it.

just had a half glass from the neighbor, not really enough to do a full, decent review, but i had to say something, because i think this is getting a bum rap. it isn't the most awesome beer on the planet, but for a killer price, it does rather well. i'd say its quality is in the $4.50 range. flavors are a bit simple, strong, not refined, and i got the impression it would go a bit astray as it warmed, but keep it cool on a late summer night, and i think it'll be worth giving a try. it's not like it's priced in 120 minute territory.

Enjoyed this beer out of a pub glass

A: copper hue with a thin white head leads to a wispyace and no trail.

S: musky hop aroma.

T: crisp musky bitter flavored followed by some off malt flavor and finishes sweet and dry.

M: medium body and medium carbonation

O: not a very well rounded beer - lots of off flavored and the hoppy punch not there.
