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: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

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

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.

A new-one-to-me IPA. A buddy had a sixer of this in his fridge the other day. As a sucker for all things-IPA, I grabbed one. Poured into a pint glass.

Pours a translucent pale orange with a small white cap of foam on top. Good sticky lace on glass. Fresh hoppy aroma, some citrus notes, grass. Not sharp in any way.

Crisp, clean feel. Refreshing. This one is easy to drink. Mild hop bitterness makes this one up. This is definitely not one that'll scald the palate. Some sweet tangerine, honeysuckle. Easy drinking. This one won't compete with the big trendy IPAs out there, but it has its place. Sometimes all I want is a mildly bitter beer that I can have a few of, and this one fits the bill perfectly. A good 'gateway' IPA for the curious.

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

A: The beer is hazy yellowish amber in color and has a light to moderate amount amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger and a half high white head that has very good retention properties, only dying down a bit and leaving lacing on the sides of the glass.
S: There are light aromas of floral and citrusy hops in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell, except the malts contribute hints of caramel and the hops contribute a light amount of lingering bitterness as well as some spicy hints.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate with some hints of crispness and a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This isn't a bad IPA, but it can seem like a run of the mill beer considering the flavors and bitterness that others in the style can offer.
