Pretty golden amber, pleasant aroma. Taste is a balanced, not particularly special taste with slight citrus lean and slight bitter remaining taste. It's ok - nothing remarkable but a nice change from the very hoppy/ citrus brews.

Amber color with nothing special on the nose. Hop residue on the palate after an initial malt infusion on the first taste. Tastes better colder. A decent if unremarkable entry to the category.

A nice IPA from a very cool brewery. I respect the folks at Diamond Bear and hope they can continue to brew good beer. This is a solid IPA. Typical,and what I've come to expect from an IPA, which says a lot because I really enjoy IPAs, and I've had a few to compare and contrast with.

Hazy, reddish brown and a few light fruits to the nose. Malty with tame bitterness and a sweet, fruity middle. A small bit o' bite in a beer barren wasteland so will refrain from griping too much.
