3.22/5  rDev -5.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Dark, copper-red body; thick, sculptured head resting on top. Sweet, caramel aroma; very faint notes of citrus. Buttery, spicy flavor; caramel; hints of pine resin; decent hop bitterness. Medium-heavy in body; semi-sweet finish.

A so-so IPA overall. It strongly leads towards some diacetyl overload. There's no date/time stamp on the can, so it's difficult to judge how long this IPA has been sitting around, but the hop character (assuming there was much of it to begin with) is pretty much subdued by a sugary, butterscotch taste. Drinkable in a pinch...

My kids got this for me for Father's day because they liked the elephant on the label.

12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

Cloudy, amber color with a nice white thick head that dissipated fairly quickly. Strong bitter taste but not overpowering. Good beer.

12oz bottle. Only bought a six pack from Sister's Mexican restaurant tamaqua pa.

Pretty average IPA. Decent hop flavor but I'm not finding the floral hops. More of a burnt hop flavor. Unless this was an old brew, I didn't see brew or expire date. Fair amount of malt flavor also.
Not a bad IPA but not one I would go out of my way to purchase again.

A pretty decent IPA. Apperance and smell are average and standard for this type. Taste and mouthfeel seem a little less than average for me. Packs plenty of "hop" but just normal for me. Overall, good to try but i'm not running out to buy more. Cheers!

A - Deep copper with lighter oranges and ambers at edges. Thick off-white head both builds and disappears rather quickly, but does leave a small foamy island. Some wispy, patchy lacing is left behind.

S - Comes across as your average IPA. Nothing disrespectful meant by that. Just straight piney and floral hops. Seems to be a decent maltiness to balance it out.

T/M - It is in fact fairly well balanced. A subtle malt base makes itself known before the hops take over. Again, piney and floral without being overpowering. Leaves a lingering citrus rind aftertaste. Medium-bodied with good amount of carbonation.

O - No solid complaints, just nothing that stands apart. Always find Dwayne's more creative offerings a little more interesting.
