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.

Serving type: bottle

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.

A 22 oz bottle for less that $2.50? I'm in. Thick full head with lots of lace and a nice clear deep copper color. Smell is mild an malty with a goodly amount of grains and caramel. Notes of toffee and english ale yeast fruitiness. A touch of alcohol. Taste is not bad. Not great but certainly drinkable and a galaxy above what is offered by BMC at this price point. Body is like a big pale ale with lots of caramel/toffee and an alcohol finish. Hops are quite mild and earthy. Short finish with a dry tea leaf bitterness Certainly firm but not what is generally in the realm of what is the norm for IPAs these days. Feel is nice with decent weight and gentle but persistent carbonation. Does it set the world on fire? No. Does it give quality flavor with drinking satisfaction at a rock bottom price? You Betcha'!. A decent mildy hopped IPA leaning more toward an English interpretation of the style than American. drink it with that in mind and you will be happy.
