Yellow, 1/2" head, vanishes quickly, aroma of dawn palmolive.

More of that nonsense in the taste, dishwater. Grey water. How is this an IPA? Because it is bitter? The malt, aroma, taste and appearance aren't there.

Its cheap, like everything at this casino, but this is something I'd expect from Baldini's or Rail City in Sparks, NV, not in Vegas. Nevermind, it is exactly what I'd expect in Vegas. Cheap, not worth it, rip off even though it seems cheap on paper.

Would rather pay 3x this for a beer that was merely average.

Nevada continues its dominance of the worst ipa's made in the states. A little bit darker of a yellow, this one doesn't look particularly inspired, but it has a nice head for being an ipa and being poured into a 'not red solo cup'. Aroma, dishwater bitterness, nothing really nice in terms of hoppiness.

Same dishwater bitterness on the taste tip, just really lacks the hopping or caramel quality you'd want, almost think this is made without all malt given the sweetness coming from it at the same time. Cheap, that's the only reason this gets a 2.5 overall instead of a 2.0.

In the worst producing IPA state around, this is one of the worst of the worst.
