Weak hop profile; malt backbone doesn't do it ay favors either. Replacement level beer.

Not sure if my bottle was bad or what but it was acidic and tart. Some hops underneath but overall undrinkable.

The smells and flavors are off for an American IPA. There is a background hop flavor that is masked by an almost artificial sweetness and abrupt unpleasant bitterness. I'm almost wondering if my bottle was infected. The feel is thin and lacking carbonation.

Pours a hazy orange, with minimal head. Thin smell. Lightly carbonated taste, with moderate bitterness in aftertaste. Malts come in a bit later, with some caramel undertones. Not a bad beer, just not for me, tastes and smell could be more dynamic.

From the 22 oz bottle, it pours amber with a small head, dissipating rapidly. Lacing as you enjoy the beer. Some floral and citrus notes in the nose. Taste is similar, with the famed bitterness at the end. Honestly, it seemed more Pale Ale to me than IPA.

These beers seem awfully one-note. I was hoping for one of the 4,000 IPAs, but it was not on tap. REluctantly, I settled for this beer. I am still searching for a great beer from this place.

Pours a lightly hazy medium copper color with a huge bubbly white head that persists forever leaving a modest amount of lace on the way down. Aromas of butterscotch and toffee with hints of caramel and light earthy spicy hops. Twinges of mineral water and hints of sulfur round out the nose. Sweet malty caramel with lots of toffee and butterscotch flavor are front and center with a lightly citric and earthy hop flavor to provide bits of balance. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet slick mouthfeel. English style IPA with all the faults that come from ringwood yeast. I don't know why I continue to buy beer from this brewery, I guess I'm hoping that they have learned what a diacytyl rest is.

A - Took a fairly vigorous pour to bring up a bubbly white head over a hazy pale amber body. Decent retention and some nice lacing.

S - Citrus grapefruit and lemon grass

T - Really nice dry burst of hops upfront, citrus and pine. Malts are smokey and toasted. But the flavor profiles drop off almost immediately leaving a faint hop aftertaste.

M - Light body with moderate carbonation. Kind of weak and thin.

O - It's really the body that's a let down here. Flavors are nice but there's no heft to support them. Meh...

Poured into an imperial pint glass. Color was a medium golden amber, with a thick foamy 3 finger head, and several streams of bubbles rising from the bottom. Head had alot of cling, and slowly went down in areas. Aroma was floral hoppy. A bit of minty orange in there as well. Flavor was yeasty, with a bit of bitter hoppiness, and a touch of banana. Nothing was overly pronounced or developed. Felt decent in the mouth. A good bit of coat, with a tad of carbonation. Overall a middle of the road IPA. If the flavors were a bit more developed it would be much better.

Hazy orange-amber pour with thin, clingy white top - nice looker. Aroma of pine pitch - somewhat enticing. Flavor, however is a real bore. An immediate flavor of citrus and funk fade to almost nothing before mid-sip. Slightly harsh linger and tingle on the tongue. Pretty disappointing.
