P- Poured from a 12 oz bottle,into a large Funky Buddha snifter.Best before 09/29/17.

L- Thick frothy off white colored head that stands one finger tall,with moderate retention and sticky lacing.Dark hazy amber colored body,with low clarity and distorted light showing through the glass.Medium amount of carbonation,and high amount of sediment.

S- On the nose I get lots of floral hops,with some spice hops,but caramel malt is the most dominant note.Lots of malt aroma for an AIPA,it honestly smells more like an English IPA.

T- On the palate I get some bitter pine up front,caramel malt in the middle,and some toasty bready cracker flavors on the back end.Some floral and spice hops on the back end,but its not very well balanced.There is definitely something off about this beer.It has a weird medicine flavored after taste.

F- The mouth feel is medium,with a sticky texture during the sip,and chalky after the sip.Lots of prickly carbonation on the tongue,with a dry finish.

O- This is not an overly impressive IPA in my opinion.I wouldn't say it is absolutely terrible,but it's definitely not something I would drink again.If you are an IPA purist I would say stay away.But if you like the English style IPA,give it a try and decide for yourself.

12oz bottle poured into a snifter. The aroma is bready malt and spicy earthy hops. Not a huge fan of the taste, the alcohol gets a little warm in the finish and the lingering hop bitterness is a little on the unpleasant side.

Had it at Dos Caminos, NYC. Happy to see "Mexican Craft Beer" choices at a Mexican restaurant.
From the bottle it poured a clear light amber with a nice frothy and foamy head and cap that retained well.
Aroma consisted of mostly caramel malts and light citrus. Some light floral aromas. Nothing too complex.
Sweet at first and caramel malt forward. Mid palate, the moderate pine hops add bitterness and flavor. Medium bodied and prickly. Easy to drink.
A simple IPA, nothing earth shattering. Tasty enough and pairs well with Mexican food.

This IPA lacks a robust hops presence. It's very malty and sweet. Smells of toasted grains and honey. Tastes on par with a hint of hoppyness on the back end. This beer is mislabeled, but a cool label nonetheless.

12 oz bottle. Pours medium hazy gold with lasting white head that leaves rings of lace. Sweet caramel bready aroma. Taste is definitely malt forward, caramel sweetness, grain, some light piney hops come in late for just a touch of bitterness. Tastes more like a hoppy amber. Mouthfeel is slippery n soft, medium fullness. Overall was surprised how much I enjoyed it, though wish it had more hop bite.
