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.

BEER DEFINITELY FIT TO STYLE OF AN AMERICAN IPA-NOSE WAS NOT STRONG, TASTE & MOUTHFEEL OKAY, COLOR FINE. I ENJOYED THIS BREW BUT WOULD NOT GO OUT OF MY WAY TO PURCHASE IT AGAIN BECAUSE I PREFER A LITTLE MORE MALTINESS AND AROMATICS WITH THIS STYLE.

Really thin. Strange malt aftertaste. Disappointing. Unfortunate.
