This is barely an IPA to me but if it's supposed to be an English style IPA then I sort of get it. It has no overly impressive aroma and it tastes like dirt. I did not enjoy this beer at all.

A - Pours a golden orange color with one finger head. Decent head retention.

S - Pleasant to the nose. A mixture of spice and malt with little hoppy presence; notes of grapefruit as well. Fairly straightforward scent.

T - Not too much to the taste for me; feels overwhelmed due to the carbonation. Hints of malt and hop, similar to the scent.

M - Fairly light bodied beer. Very carbonated feel.

O - An average IPA for me. The carbonation was too harsh which I feel took away from the flavor. Drinkable but an average beer overall.

Absolutely one of the best IPA's I've ever had. Very fruity and hopped just enough

Bright golden with orange tint to it. White head of fair retention. Grainy, piny, a little spicy on the nose at first, mellows to lightly floral or soapy. Makes for dank drinking. A little too light and thin, and could be smoother. Crisp with nice not overly-prickly carbonation.

Taste like a lite beer, but cost like a craft beer.

12 oz bottle

Pours an opaque light golden body with a 1/2 inch white head that dissolves quickly, some lacing

Faint smell, mostly malt with a little pine

Taste follows the smell. with a malt start that goes directly to a slightly bitter hop finish

Feel is thin and slightly prickly

Overall. Kind of a middle of the road-ish malt forward IPA .

Appearance: Pours light and blonde and golden, two finger white head, translucent.

Smell: A light perceptible hop aroma with golden malt smell.

Taste: The initial taste imparts very little in the way hop character, and as the beer opens up you pleasant sweet malt taste becomes apparent, and then it finishes with a slightly citrusy but not intensely bitter finish.

Mouthfeel: A fairly thin beer not only as far as hop flavor but also malt content.

Overall: I wouldn't consider this a genuine IPA. With such mild hop presence, this beer fails into the category of a slightly hoppy pale ale.
