A: Clear, light amber color with little diminishing white foam head.
S: Harsh grain notes with some kind of Trappist undertone The overall effect is suggestive of a hybrid hops bill using both modern (i.e., Amarillo) and traditional (Columbus) American cultivars. A chemical hops quality that is unpleasant.

T: Begins dry, Acidity takes over to where established flavors are still evident; flavor qualities generally become less intense. The finish is mildly bitter and malty with a neutral character of base grain.

M: Thin slightly acidic on the palate, with moderate carbonation.

D/O: This IPA seems to be assembled for mass appeal; a gateway to the style. It threatens to offend the senses and sensibilities of this student of hops by not supporting the low hop quality with bland malt notes. There will likely be a showdown looming when it hits sports bar draft lines next to Harpoon IPA.

A - Pours hazed gold with a ton of head, fades to some mild lacing.
S - Big juicy orange notes in this one, some mild earthy scents, some light toasted bread malt, which is kinda odd, but ok.
T - Again lots of orange, but lots of big sweet caramel and bread malt, moderate acrid bite.
M - Cloying sweetness, chewy.
O - Just an ok IPA, good orange, but thats all it has goin on for it.
