look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Into glass mug from 12 ounce bottle.

A: Nice amber color with 3 finger head that dwinles down to a nice sheen with good lacing.

S: Nice cascade hops aroma with subtle malt notes.

T: Well balanced brew that is not as aggressive as most IPAs. The cascade hops do shine through though and leave a dry finish.

M: Nice medium light mouthfeel.

O: Picked these up on sale at a local supermarket. Well worth the dollar a bottle price.

Pours rather flat with a caramel color. Still learning scents, but nothing that necessarily stood out.

Kind of a light taste and rather underwhelming. Has a hint of citrus flavor, but again, not as flavorful as other IPAs I've had.

File this one to drink on one of those scorching summer days when I will inexplicably want an IPA and will prefer one that's lighter.

Otherwise, I'll select another.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Had on tap at TBones--Plymouth--served into a pint glass

Appearance: 1/4 inch head, golden-brown in color, clear, low carbonation

Smell: citrus and soapy hops

Taste: caramel, husk, citrus and soapy hops

Mouthfeel: sweet start with a light bitter middle and a stronger bitter end, light bodied, moderate carbonation

Overall: An average if not slightly timid IPA that drinks a bit more like a strong pale ale. This is not a beer I would turn down, but not one I would go out of my way for either.

3.23/5  rDev +5.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

A - see through caramel amber with a light, white head

S - faint citrus, faint crystal malts

T - faint bread, faint citrus, lightly spicy hops

M - light to medium bodied, well carbonated

This is a rather disappointing IPA. Nothing about this beer is forward or very pronounced. The body is a bit too light. The flavor is too subdued with a mediocre hop character. There just isn't here that makes me want to ever try this again.

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.

It pours a clear, light amber with a white head. Head retention is decent and the lacing is alright as well. It carries aromas of citrus and caramel, with a light malty backbone. The caramel is first tasted followed by some refreshing grapefruit notes from the hops. Malt shines through in the finish. There is a good amount of carbonation with a moderate mouthfeel. Overall, not too bad. Pick some up if you get the chance

3.61/5  rDev +17.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Clear dark gold color. Good head for a bar pour. Leaves ring lace after each sip.

Metallic (iron-like) smell. Light and mild pale ale aromas. Muted hop.

Better flavor than the smell indicates. Fairly middle of the road, taste-wise. Dry, as if a bit of rye were added. Hop bitterness provides balance but isn't enough to fit the typical IPA profile. Medium bodied with a mildly elevated carbonation.
