3.35/5 rDev -10.9%
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.

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.

Bright orange/yellow with a large white head.
Aromas were generally mild. Citrus and grains with a touch of sweetness.
Flavor was dominated by citrus hops. Orange peel, bread, and caramel flavors blend well. Most of the flavors seemed a bit subdued and didn't entirely compliment the hop bitterness. Hints of peppery spice, pine, and grains.
Mouthfeel was good though a bit thin. This is a good IPA though not overly memorable.
