IPA watered down for the masses. If you were unfamiliar with the style, this might be a good introduction. Mild hop bitterness is the order of the day, but much more subdued than the NW varieties.

Part of a Meijer four mixed pack. $1.59 for the single bottle. Kicking back watching the superbowl.


Look - Golden hue with a finger and soapy head. Carbonation appears to be low.

Smell - Crisp hoppyness with fruit aspects. Toned down.

Taste - Lemony galore with a high malt presence.

Feel - Thicker than your average body with a moderate to heavy carbonation.

Overall - Not much in terms of frills but it's an okay easy going IPA.

Not a bad selection when there is nothing else to choose from. BBC always put favorable offerings out in their profile. All in all a decent beer. Not worth chasing after, but decent.

In the world of IPA's this is decent. However, when the best part of a beer is the way it looks in a glass that is not a good thing. Smells and tastes of grapefruit, lemon, herbal notes and strong malt presence. Medium bodied and carbonated, light bitterness, crisp.

I got 3 cans of this in a Sam Adams IPA variety 12-pack on sale for $14.99. It’s a decent IPA, but nothing special. There are better IPAs in the same price range.
