Caramel color, smelled a bit alcoholly, kind of like cheaper beers, definitely lacking aromatics to my nose. Thankfully, I had some Karbach Hopadillo on hand to chase it with, which was amazing in comparison. Super foamy pour for me, quite annoying actually. Big disappointment for a "craft" beer. Will not buy this again.

This pours a dark copper, a couple of fingers of tan head. Aroma is a little boozy, which surprised me, along with piney hops and caramel from the malt bill.

The taste is all piney hops and caramel, and the feel is pretty nice. This is NOT a hop bomb, but I also don't think it it's as bad as this is reviewed. But I'm a notorious overrater, so that should definitely be considered.

As an IPA, not great. Lacks the hop profile of an IPA. Taste is grapefruit hops balanced by a strong, malty sweet backbone. This would be great as a balanced pale ale. But not an IPA. Crisp body. Lingering cascade bitterness.

Nabbed a can at a Trader Joe's in Austin, TX for $1.59 USD.

7.2% ABV. Brewed with Cascade hops.

Cascade is a classic hop and plays well in this even though this beer has the hop pungency of a contemporary pale ale instead of an IPA. Pale malts keep it balanced. Very drinkable, if simple and rudimentary for an IPA.

A nice little table IPA at its $9 per sixer price point, but in such an oversaturated style even this level of quality doesn't make it stand out. Definitely worth trying and not a beer I'd mind a sixer of, but it's more of a get-a-pitcher-with-pizza kind of beer than a dazzlingly complex or pungent IPA.

B- (3.39) / WORTHY

Pours a slightly hazy darker gold color with off-white head. Malt, bread, dough, and only a faint grassy note on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied Finishes with more malt. Way too malty for an IPA, and not nearly enough of a hop profile at all.
