3.78/5  rDev +0.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a pint glass on 7/5/09

Bottle dated 12/24/08

A - Medium copper color. Slightly hazy with some transparency. Poured a 2 finger head that dissipates to ¼ inch quickly, leaving mild lacing.

S - Primarily citrus in the nose with some bicuity malt notes.

T - Spicy hop taste with citrus & earth tones. There is a slight lingering bitterness. A touch of malty smoothness rounds out the flavor spectrum.

M - Nicely carbonated with some sticky hop resin.

D - Decent midwest IPA offering. While I wouldn't go out of my way to find it, I would have no qualms about drinking it again.

Looks good with a dark orange/amber color and a white sticky head. Aroma is fruity with apricot and other fruit.

Taste is very hoppy with little malt to back it up. It is not thin however. A decent mouthfeel makes this palatable. ABV does not seem to come through in the flavor.

A decent drinkable brew.

On tap at the Detroit airport. Review from notes.

Poured a nice deep amber with a frothy off-white head that lasted maybe a couple minutes. Translucent body. A biscuity and grainy aroma with a grassy and herbal kind of bitterness. The hop profile could use a little boost, as the malts seem to be slightly muted, although the entire beer could use a boost now that I think about it. Otherwise, a nice and creamy texture. Residual herbal and piney bitterness reminds me this is an IPA.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 3

So i decided to get a 6 pack of this because i'm a fan of IPA's and i haven't had theirs yet.

A The color of this beer was a very dark amber, alot like Vernors or a ginger ale.. which i anticipated.

S The smell was just as any other ale. Citrus like and hoppy, very hoppy.

T The tast was delighful of course me being a IPA kinda guy. same characteristics as the smell. Once again, hoppy!

M Mouthfeel was carbonated not creamy at all just smooth but carbonated

In the end this wasn't a bad buy at all but now that i've had it i don't see myself going back to it, i know of plenty of others that are better and of course that are worse. I'd say try it but don't expect to be blown away.
