This is just a really weak effort at an IPA

Heavily carbonated with a lot of malt on the nose. Taste is not quite what I was expecting as the malt and the hops are battling it out for dominance. Not enough to really call it an IPA. OK effort, though !

drain poured... why make an "IPA" without hops? Just why? offensive to American IPAs....

didn't bother to pour this one into a glass after my first (also my last) sip. smell was all malt, not even a good malt. maybe like if you took a piece of caramel candy and let it dissolve into water? taste was slightly more awful than smell, because at least with smell the unpleasantness goes away after a second. with taste it lingers, and lingers, and lingers. really the only thing that this beer has going for it is feel, but really who cares about how the beer feels if you can't get past the taste? I wont even accept this as a free gift from anyone going forward.

Poured from a 12 oz can into a pint glass. This is a cloudy golden colored beer with a large white head. The beer has heavy carbonation. The aroma is slightly medicinal and soapy, not very inviting. The flavor is medicinal with a slight unpleasant aftertaste. The best part of the beer is the graphics on the can.
