2.05/5  rDev -33.2%
look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

A: Tarnished orange with a brilliant clarity shows a light mention of slow steady carbonation rise. Sturdy, frothy 1 finger head is eggshell white in coloring and bready in texture. Thin film lace is nothing to write home about.

S: Caramel sweetness on the nose is light with a background of musky citrus hops. Aromatic level is very light and mundane, nothing that will make your nose hairs stand at attention, perhaps more of a pale lager. Fresh green leaves and a toasty freshness is faint but recognizable. but as anykind of ipa it truely is lackluster.

T: Flavor was clean, the malt base a bit reminensce of thier northwest style lager with a touch of speciality grains. Slight bump of cascade hops but hardly lager level let alone ipa level of respectfullness. Fresh forest tones of greenery and hops, slight toasted breadiness with some off metallic ting. Abit boring as such, light, bland with a faint detection of pine.

M: Light body, a bit watery with some caramel but lackluster in its feel and carbonation factor. a lazy lay on the tongue with some sour caramel twang coming on the swallow and a hint of silty residual coating.

O: Overall its their private reserve lager recipe with some specialty grains and a bump of cascade hops which makes this only marginable better by comparison but somewhat worse by style. Again more for the pseudo-craft crowd, and will surely dissappoint those looking for a good hopilicious ipa.

2.09/5  rDev -31.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 1.75 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

Appearance - pours a golden color with a touch of orange. A thick finger of creamy, sticky foam forms up, leaving a nice wall of lace all around.

Aroma - a nice opening whiff of pininess. Some grain kicks in and then pretty much takes over. before long, its just a sweet grain smell, you might not now its an IPA at all. Attains a metallic edge as it warms.

Taste - the sweetness of the grain and the bitterness of the hop hit at the same time. The grains are thin, macro-ish and not at all robust, the hops are washed out with no depth or flavor. Everything has been diluted, I've had spicier pale ales.

Mouthfeel - crisp carbonation, moderate feel, it's alright.

Drinkability - a value buy IPA at DEPs fine wines in Fort Thomas. At $5.99 a 12-pack, I certainly got what I paid for. I don't say this about many beers, but this is one to drink out of the bottle and not a glass to keep some of the unpleasant nose under wraps. I'd grab it as a cheap lawn mower beer, low end fireside beer, something like that.

look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass.

A: Pale gold with a short lived head

S: More caramel malt than hops

T: Malty with strong caramel upfront. Hops bitterness was almost non-existent for an IPA.

M: Average for a session beer.

O: More of an American Amber than an IPA. Not Impressive as an IPA, but I think it'd sell better labeled as an Amber.

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

Passin' through the woods to tap some IPA. Or so the legend goes... Yeah, anyway, this stuff pours a clear blonde topped by a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises sweet perfume, light wheat, light biscuit, and a hint of what may or may not be grass. Wow, this is sad. No word-mincing here, folks. The taste holds notes of mild caramel, very light pine resin, and a hint of lemon rind. Man, this tastes more like a really bland wit or something than anything resembling an IPA of any substance or worth. I'm sure at least A hop was tossed into the kettle, but anything beyond that is mere speculation based on the label text that apparently calls this stuff an "IPA". The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a slightly drying finish. Overall, this is a pathetic little "IPA", one that exists in the style only because the label says so. ...And that's really all I can say about this bland nonsense.

I'm not pouring this. I'm drinking this straight from the bottle. How many other Henry drinkers are going to bother pouring their beers? NONE! Henry drinkers get the product because it is lower priced than all the microbrews and slightly tastier than the macrobrews. It's that step between, but isn't quite right. This is not an IPA at all. I'm not tasting hops, I'm not sure what I'm tasting but it's kinda bitter and chemically... It's like I'm drinking High Fructose Hops Syrup... It's easy enough to drink though and feels okay on the mouth, but is clearly not something I would choose to repeat drinking. If you're going to bother getting a cheap IPA, somehow the Pyramid Thunderhead IPA comes a lot closer, and I really don't like Pyramid. Chalk this beer up to pretty much useless. It's going to give people a bad impression of what an IPA is supposed to be. GOOD JOB HENRY! KEEP UP THE BAD WORK!

2.41/5  rDev -21.5%
look: 2.75 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.25

A- mostly clear shiny copper with golden highlights and a foamy buff colored head that is loose and airy and loud and generic looking. Not very hoppy looking either. Lace abounds.

S- brightly floral, spicy and citrus, but subdued. Underlying orange peel and caramel toasted grains.

T- pleasant bitterness with a resinous hop flavor, but Sierra Nevada pale ale seems hoppier than this IPA. It's got some lightly toasty grains and a small hint of sweetness but it lacks any sort of complexity or intrigue. Finishes nicely balanced but again, it has a very generic taste.

MF- medium bodied and fizzy with moderate dryness.

D- this is one laid back easy going IPA. Dollar store IPA. It's not offensive in any way, just bland.

2.45/5  rDev -20.2%
look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

A:Nice clear golden color. Lace on the glass ran away relatively fast. Great looking head at first that dissipated faster than expected.
S:Light in smell with almost absent hop aroma, but a lingering citric essence.
T:Malty on the front of the taste with a gradual tartness toward the finish. Too light on the hops. Almost a slight phenolic aftertaste.
M:Gentle mouth feel that rolls across the tongue, nothing special.

Overview: Not a bad beer at $9.99 12pk. Very run of the mill mild IPA almost borderline Pale Ale. Not a very smooth drinkable beer, I could drink about two and no more. Part of what I taste is a slight phenolic finish, which almost makes you try to scrape the taste off your tongue with your teeth. Perfect beer to take to family gathering where there's not great appreciation for fine beers. An alright step up from Bud, Coors, Miller, etc.

2.46/5  rDev -19.9%
look: 2.75 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

A- Poured from bottle into pint glass, dark amber color
S- Smelled "thick" to me, with an aroma of alcohol and some hops
T- This beer was maltier than I expected. I didn't get much taste of hops, which was a disappointment. It also tasted a bit flat.
M- Flat aftertaste, not pleasant, almost skunky. Could have been the bottle, not sure.

Overall, I didn't really enjoy anything about this beer. Its not horrible, but its not worth buying IMO.

I was really underwhelmed with this one. It was a basic golden color, just a little richer than a Budweiser or some such bs beer. The hops were pretty lacking in both the aroma and the taste. Really, if it didn't say "IPA" on the label, I never would have placed it as such. Not horrible, but not good in any way!
