L: Pours a slightly clouded copper gold color with a large rocky white head that slowly dissipates and leaves about an inch of creamy white head on top, with sheets of lacing all around the glass.

S: Dank, weedy and piney hops, almost no fruit, slight notes of caramel and lighter malt underneath.

T: Dank, weedy and piney, very little fruit, some floral hops, a slight bit of caramel malt in the background. Medium to strong piney bitterness that lingers on the palate for a long while.

F: Medium body and carbonation.

O: This is a pretty average IPA and feels quite old school these days, very little fruit and lots of bitterness and piney and weediness. Not bad but nothing really stands out about it.

From the older can, it pours a slightly hazy amber with a modest head. Some lacing. Hops in the nose, hops in the mouth. Respectable flavor overall. Some bitterness and a very slight aftertaste.

Once again another past dated deal from my local liquor store. Got this for dirt cheap, but it was still really flavorful.......lots of good hops flavors in there.

A darker than average ipa that imparts both amber and light brown colors. The aroma is completely lacking in dry hops.

If you're gonna talk about hops on your label, there should be like, discernable hops in the aroma or taste. Here you just get the abv and malt body of an ipa, but you know, without hops. There's some bitterness in the 40ibu range and everything, but jeez, this stuff maybe was to style 25 years ago, or I just don't know how to reconcile how this stuff is missing the main ingredient for an ipa.

Poured from bottle into tulip glass. Cloudy amber in color. Smell is caramel sweetness with minimal hoppiness. Tastes like it smells. Definitely on the sweet side and without a hop bite. Heavy carbonation. Not great for an IPA. OK and would drink again but would not seek this one out.
