Fresh aromas of brown sugar malts and herbal hops. Potent bitters mix well with introverted malts. Very good E-IPA, the difference between the american IPA and english IPA are apparent.

A decent take on an American IPA, well-balanced, if not particularly hoppy. Pours a nice hazy brownish-gold, with solid lacing on the glass. It won't blow your mind, but it's a highly drinkable, perfectly pleasant beer. Highly recommended for anyone unused to IPAs or adverse to bitter brews.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

A rather brown pour, dark copper and red kind of color. Far darker than your average IPA. Off white head, about 1/4" deep, a little thin.

Aroma was hoppy, heavy malt aspect to it. Grains. Comes off as lots of Cascade hops.

Taste, substantially bitter. Tons of bittering hops. Again, Cascades give off the grapefruit character and pithiness. Big hit of caramel throughout it.

Man used to drink these quite often, I don't know what the deal is now, but their distribution seems to be almost nil. Seems like they continually lower the heft and abv of this beer every year or so.

While it used to be pretty enjoyable, every subsequent time I have it, it comes off less impressive.

12 oz bottle poured into pint glass. Picked this beer up at The Cellar in Norman, Oklahoma.

Appearance-Light amber color with steady streams of bubbles rising. A foamy off white head that started at about 2 fingers but quickly subsided to half a finger where it held steady. Light lacing.

Smell-Light hops. Sweet malt smell. Light caramel. Very balanced. Smells delicious but not a typical IPA smell.

Taste-This beer didnt attack my palate like i expected. Almost no flavor up front, just a light sweetness. Finishes with a light hoppiness with some light caramel as well. Definately not robust or overpowering. Good, but not what i was expecting from an IPA.

Mouthfeel-Beer feels crisp and refreshing. Watery? Seems to have above average carbonation.

Overall-I found this to be a pleasant, drinkable beer. Very mild tasting for an IPA. Great color and nice lacy rings after each drink. Just not enough hop flavor for me.
