12oz bottle. Pours a light brown semi translucent color with a half inch of head. Good lacing. Aroma is malty with some pine and sweet brown sugar. The taste is pine and sweet malts. Some brown sugar and earthiness as well. Floral hop notes as well. Reminds me a bit of a Rye IPA. Some bitter floral hop flavor at the end. Medium bodied with a bit of a light mouthfeel. Pretty decent beer to find in a mix 12 pack. Overall, decent IPA.

APPEARANCE: Pours an unfiltered light brown or deep copper color. Soapy, filmy froth forms and drops a nice lace to the brew.

AROMA: Piney, herbal, grapefruit, malty.

FLAVOR: Opens up with a balance of toasted caramel malts and a piney, herbal hop character that is plenty earthy. Notes of leafy and oily hops are all over the semi dry finish to this beer. Malt and hops give a 1-2 punch to this beer, with a faintly fruity ale yeast backing. Citrus, herb, grass and bush clippings. Hop forward, but there is a sturdy malt base. Drinking just fine, had enough character, body and flavors to keep it interesting.

FEEL: Full bodied, smooth, perfect high medium carbonation.

OVERALL: A good solid IPA with all the right hop flavors, a lush malty body, and enough character to set it apart from many others. I would call this an English inspired, east coast IPA. Meant for extended sessions. Worthy.

Somewhat hazy. Amber color hints at a toasty malt. Static suds sit as a thin cap.

Big caramel malt, piney hops, a slight cat piss note, sweeter malts with toast, earthiness, and light funkiness. Strange for an IPA. Very malty, comparatively.

Earthy and with a little stank. Hops are unremarkable, but the toastiness is nice. More pine, but a lot of caramel/toffee. Much drier now, thank goodness. Onion-y cat piss hops are also present. Not in a pleasing way. Strange minty aftertaste. Malts carry through, too. I feel like there are clashing off-flavors that ruin the good of this beer.

Drinks decently. Balance of carbonation and body make for an easy drink.

I mean, I wish this beer didn't smell a little like butthole. And, taste a little funky, too. Whatevs. I learned my lesson.

Pours amber with a thick white foamy head that descends to a full cover. Patchy lacing sticks.

It has a classic American IPA nose: citrus- grapefruit/orange/lemon with leafy spicing. Caramel backs it up.

The taste is of a citric and leafy bitterness with sweet caramel and pale malt backing. Plenty of hop taste in the finish.

It could be creamier/fuller, but it is smooth and holds up to a medium body.

This is a nice representation of a hoppy/caramelish American IPA.
