Poured from 12 oz. bottle into IPA glass. It pours a honey-bronze color with one finger of creamy, ecru-colored head and lacing with good retention. The smell was mostly bready malt with a whiff of pine. The taste featured a strong malt base with caramel, pine needles, and floral hops at the finish. It's not a bad balance of malt and hops. This ale is medium-bodied, moderately-carbonated, and easy to drink with an ABV of 5.7% Overall, it's not bad but it certainly doesn't compare to the leaders of the style. The bottle was undated so I cannot tell how fresh it was.

A very generic tasting IPA.. Drinkable yes, would I buy it again most likely not...it's bitter but not in the normal IPA kinda way.

Undated bottle into pint glass. Pours a cloudy pale amber with a coarse off-white head. Initial impression is well-balanced pine, citrus, and grassy hops with some malt presence, but nothing dominates. Medium mouthfeel, medium carbonation - just about as good as it gets on both counts. Fairly dry finish, with slight lingering bitterness. Very refreshing. Good IPA.

Bottle. Poured copper with a thin, off-white head. Aroma is a diacetyl bomb. Buttered toast, caramel and maybe some burnt out hop. Flavor is barely gulpable. Again, huge diacetyl flavor. Sweet caramel. IPA? Phuck Awf. This is not good. I think this is one of those beers that goes by a brewery pen-name to appease big grocery stores and create an illusion that they have their own stock brand in house exclusively. Lame.

A solid IPA. Fits the character, has the right hoppy profile. Fair. Serviceable.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- Has a hop and earthy aroma with some citrus tossed in.
Appearance- A dark amber color with a small off-white head.
Palate- A medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation. Has a smooth texture to slightly oily feel, not bad.
Overall- This is an average IPA.
