I was very disappointed in the beer. I expected a lot more. Not much hop profile at all. I've had much better, which isn't hard to find.

I want to like this beer. I wish the hops were a bit more complex. That being said, I picked it up at Winn-Dixie for 6.99 a 6-pack which is awesome. Still better than most things you would find at a Winn-Dixie.

Poured a clear golden body with a half-finger white head. A very true to style IPA appearance. Scents of dank, earthy herbal hops, floral hop aromas with notes of jasmine, grass clippings and tea-like aromas with a bit of biscuit-like malt in the background. Overall impression of aroma is of an earthy, English hop sort of IPA. Very nice for the style, earthy and herbal. Flavor begins with medium bitterness and flavors of floral hops, earthy, herbal hops and notes of grapefruit peel and pith and hints of pine resin. Middle is bitter with notes of pine resin, grapefruit peel and pith and medium notes of floral and herbal hops. Finish is bitter with notes of resinous hops, pine resin, grapefruit peel and pith, light alcohol and earthy hops. Aftertaste is pine resin, grainy, biscuity malt. Overall impression of flavor is of a nice, earthy, dank IPA that also has a nice citrus presence with pine. Very well done. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium-light carbonation and a resinous, drying mouthfeel. Overall impression of mouthfeel is of a good IPA that is easy to drink. Overall this is a good IPA. Strong, bitter, resinous, herbal, floral and citrusy in aroma and flavor. A nice mouthfeel aids the experience. A good IPA well worth drinking.

Hmmmmm, this IPA is good at best. I sense not a lot of hop presents here. Malts do linger. Just not a lot going on here. This is drinkable. Carbonation is high. Aftertaste is dull but clean. With all the good IPA beers out there, one can afford to be critical. The good thing is the finish. I do get a specific but shallow scent of hops. Lacing is good. This beer is doable. Okay, just had my second brew and seems to be improving. Head has taken on a deeper hue showing some purity. Lacing is a bit stickier.

Update. The beer is delicious. Had the beer again with a clean palate. Like the orange hue to the beer. The finish is good. Lacing is excellent. Not a lot of hop presents,but there. Went down fast. I think i will pursue this again. Price is right to. Not overly complex but delicious none the less...Great IPA..
