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.

12oz bottle, pours a crystal clear golden-amber color topped with a fluffy white head; decent retention, minimal lace. Aromas are floral hop, lager yeast (?), grain, caramel, metallic, a little soapy, which I find cascade hops to smell & taste like (no pun with the name). Tastes are toasted grain, light caramel, floral cascade hops glow from beginning to finish with a semi-bitter ending. Mouth-feel is thin to medium bodied, pleasant carbonation. Overall, pretty good, but seems to be lacking something. Probably wouldn't bother with it again.

Pours a clear, copper color. 1/4 inch head of a white color. Good retention and decent lacing. Smells of floral hops, sweet malt, pine, slight pale malt, and candy sugar. Fits the style of an American IPA. Mouth feel is smooth and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of sweet malt, slight earthy malt, slight caramel malt, hint of pale malt, and slight hops. Overall, good aroma, but the body is all malt and little hops.

I can get this for $5 a six-pack, making this a great alternative for your average American adjunct lager during a night of drinking with friends. An inoffensive, if not refreshing IPA (more of a pale ale) that works best when consumed in double-digit quantities over the span of a night in good company.

When it was poured, it has a fairly plain and pale appearance in the glass.
It unfortunately it does have much of a nose.
On tasting, it is very weak on the hops. I have definitely had pale ales with more hops.
It does flow smoothly across the tongue and throat. There is very little bite.
Overall, this is very average at best. To me, it feels like a weak pale pretending to be an IPA.

The beers clear golden amber with a tall dense head with lite carbs actually bordering on flat. Plain looking.
Smells mostly of malts, malt husks and toasted malts.
Taste is a bore with simple malts and husks.
Drinks fairly smooth and not abrasive as I was expecting.Easy drinking but lacking big time.

Had this on tap at a Quaker steak & lube. I didn't have much choice in craft beers, but I wasn't unhappy I ordered this.

A: a golden, copper color, very clear, no hop haze. Zero lacing.

S: I couldn't get much aroma off this beer at all. A slight toasty, bready smell but its almost neutral

T: a slight caramel flavor. Not much in the way of malt. It's tart but not bitter. Finishes tart, but not bitter. If there was any dry hops in here at all I can't taste them.

M: finishes clean and dry, bitterness and tartness don't linger

O: given the choice between BMC and this beer I will chose this every time. I'm not sure I'm interested in paying $5 for a pint of it.
