A - Pours a golden amber with a very thick head that dissipates but never disappears. Leaves lots of lacing all over the glass. Lots of bubbles that don't take away from the look of the beer.

S - The second I poured the beer, I could smell the hops. Overwhelming almost, but then nothing. The smell disappeared almost entirely, and I could only smell it if I got really close to the glass. Smells good regardless of the lack of IPA tang I'm used to.

T - As a beer, not bad. As an IPA, eh... Tastes like a hopped up lager, which actually tastes pretty good, but as far as IPAs go, it's that hop wallop that counts, and it just isn't here for this one...

M - Nothing special here. Smooth and creamy.

O - Not a bad IPA for the Mix-A-Six bunch at my local supermarket. By no means a bad beer, but with IPAs being one of my top two favorite styles, this kinda let me down. Still a great beer in it's own right, and would definitely drink again if I had to.

Thanks to Tim (my bro) for sharing this with me, enjoyed chilled in a mug.

The color is deep amber bordering on copper with a light tan cap and tight bead, the lace clings well. The smell is mostly malt with a light yeast ester and floral hop aroma. The feel is moderately carbonated medium bodied with mild sweetness and semi full feel on the palate with slight diacetyl smoothness and toasted texture.

The taste s lightly nutty with light spice, but not very much bitterness to speak of with more of a pale ale taste wise than IPA since the herbal hops don't jump out and there is a balance of flavor with mild yeast flavor anchoring the malt/hops combo. Overall a pretty enjoyable beer, but I kind of think they do it a disservice by labeling something with such low hop flavor and aroma and IPA

Walmart in Arizona. $12.77 for a twelve pack. I figured, "Why not? It's gotta be better than Fat Tire."

Appearance:
Nice looking beer. Copper color. Strong carbonation. Good fizzy head, which dissipates quickly. Not much legs.

Smell:
Faint. Sweet. Bready.

Taste:
Bitter ginger ale. Sweet. Bready. Bitter. No fireworks. Not bad.

Mouthfeel.
Fizzy. Bitter. Slightly astringent. Good body.

Overall:
The more I drink it the more I like it. A no regrets kickass session beer. I could drink this a lot and still enjoy it. Good value. Not spectacular but surprisingly solid.

A: clear copper color light and crisp looking. Poured thick fizzy white head.

S: the nose on this one was good. You get the cascade hops. And also the caramel malts. Not very citrusy like alot of ipas but the hops are there.

M: thin Almost watery. Very carbonated.

T: hops up front but not enough. Malt finish. There isnt much.. at least what you do get is hops.

O: decent beer. For an ipa its poor. But it stands as a great entry level beer into the world of craft beers. For tge price, its Good. Its just not much there. The nakts are too present for an ipa. The makts also seem cheap. It has a malt liquor type maltiness. Not what you want in an ipa. Its good. Not bad like sime say.. yea its not great but hey for the price.. its Good Cheers
