I think everyone is being too generous here. A 74? Not even close. This tastes like a macro-lager, not an IPA. Where are the hops?! I taste none... If it is 90 degrees out, this beer would work. Any other time though, not at all. Quite possible the worst IPA I have ever had. Another doozy from Jacob Leinenkugel.

This beer was nothing like a Helles. It was too bitter in a bad kind of way; almost sour. It seemed to be lacking any caramel malt character. It had a metallic taste. It was thin. It poured with no head.

This beer just completely missed the mark. I suppose if they called it a hoppy, American pale lager it would make some sense. But even then it would not be good.
