12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass.

A--Slightly hazy, golden color. Looks like a proper beer. Head was minimal, lacing was non-existent.

S--Sweet, fruity with a lot of apricot. No noticable hoppy aromas (pine, citrus, etc...). Excellent smell, just not really like an IPA.

T--Follows the smell. Sweet and fruity, with minimal hop bite and minimal flavors typical of an IPA. There's maltiness and yeastiness present, which are very good, but again, not reminiscent of an IPA.

M--Good carbonation. A slight astringency. Quenching.

O--I'd rate it lower as an IPA, but higher as a generic beer. My rating is in the middle b/c I really liked it, but it's just not an IPA. Definitely a good beer for a hot day, though.

Was in Montrose, PA, the other day and saw this at the beer distributor. Asked the fellow behind the counter what he thought of it. "It's okay," he said. "Just okay?," I asked back. "Yeah."

He was right. I wanted to like it -- and it's certainly drinkable -- but it's not a particularly good IPA. The bottles I had were a bit over-carbonated, the flavor was off-kilter. It was...

Okay.

I probably wouldn't buy it again.
