look: 1.5 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 1.75 | overall: 2

AROMA: Some hops in the nose, but are a bit grassy. Caramel malt is there but not strong. There is really not much of an aroma.
APPEARANCE: Copper in color and a bit on the hazy side. Pencil thin head that disappeared quickly. Not the most impressive looking beer.
TASTE: The sweet caramel malt is balanced by a fair amount of bitterness. Hop flavor is a bit vegetable like. It’s not terrible but leaves a lot to be desired in an IPA
PALATE: Medium to medium-high body cotes the mouth. Carbonation is low leave the beer just a bit short of the crispness I like in my IPA
OVERALL: It’s OK, far behind a lot of IPA's out there.

i had to rate this one low it was just too far outa style for an ipa if u ask me it was supposed to show case citra ,summitt,and 48 lattitude cascade which i believe is argentine or new zealand cascade but ye i could not taste even the slightest hop aroma or bitterness for that fact to me this tasted like a dryhopped lager i hate lagger no flavor to them nor was there in this beer i have to say color was pretty nice hue of golden red and it was carbed well i guess but i dont even think its bitter enough to be called a regular pale ale should be called a dryhopped lager like beer i cant imagine they used ale yeast when brewing this very kolsch like brew im bummed i wasnt able to taste the great blend of hops they claim to use maybe they could tripple the amount of hops and would have a descent ipa maybe closer to a english pale ale

A: Tarnished orange with a brilliant clarity shows a light mention of slow steady carbonation rise. Sturdy, frothy 1 finger head is eggshell white in coloring and bready in texture. Thin film lace is nothing to write home about.

S: Caramel sweetness on the nose is light with a background of musky citrus hops. Aromatic level is very light and mundane, nothing that will make your nose hairs stand at attention, perhaps more of a pale lager. Fresh green leaves and a toasty freshness is faint but recognizable. but as anykind of ipa it truely is lackluster.

T: Flavor was clean, the malt base a bit reminensce of thier northwest style lager with a touch of speciality grains. Slight bump of cascade hops but hardly lager level let alone ipa level of respectfullness. Fresh forest tones of greenery and hops, slight toasted breadiness with some off metallic ting. Abit boring as such, light, bland with a faint detection of pine.

M: Light body, a bit watery with some caramel but lackluster in its feel and carbonation factor. a lazy lay on the tongue with some sour caramel twang coming on the swallow and a hint of silty residual coating.

O: Overall its their private reserve lager recipe with some specialty grains and a bump of cascade hops which makes this only marginable better by comparison but somewhat worse by style. Again more for the pseudo-craft crowd, and will surely dissappoint those looking for a good hopilicious ipa.

I'm not getting the "hint if caramel" that they boast, and it's more metallic tasting than bitter. Serviceable, but not much of an IPA.

Appearance - pours a golden color with a touch of orange. A thick finger of creamy, sticky foam forms up, leaving a nice wall of lace all around.

Aroma - a nice opening whiff of pininess. Some grain kicks in and then pretty much takes over. before long, its just a sweet grain smell, you might not now its an IPA at all. Attains a metallic edge as it warms.

Taste - the sweetness of the grain and the bitterness of the hop hit at the same time. The grains are thin, macro-ish and not at all robust, the hops are washed out with no depth or flavor. Everything has been diluted, I've had spicier pale ales.

Mouthfeel - crisp carbonation, moderate feel, it's alright.

Drinkability - a value buy IPA at DEPs fine wines in Fort Thomas. At $5.99 a 12-pack, I certainly got what I paid for. I don't say this about many beers, but this is one to drink out of the bottle and not a glass to keep some of the unpleasant nose under wraps. I'd grab it as a cheap lawn mower beer, low end fireside beer, something like that.

12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass.

A: Pale gold with a short lived head

S: More caramel malt than hops

T: Malty with strong caramel upfront. Hops bitterness was almost non-existent for an IPA.

M: Average for a session beer.

O: More of an American Amber than an IPA. Not Impressive as an IPA, but I think it'd sell better labeled as an Amber.

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

Passin' through the woods to tap some IPA. Or so the legend goes... Yeah, anyway, this stuff pours a clear blonde topped by a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises sweet perfume, light wheat, light biscuit, and a hint of what may or may not be grass. Wow, this is sad. No word-mincing here, folks. The taste holds notes of mild caramel, very light pine resin, and a hint of lemon rind. Man, this tastes more like a really bland wit or something than anything resembling an IPA of any substance or worth. I'm sure at least A hop was tossed into the kettle, but anything beyond that is mere speculation based on the label text that apparently calls this stuff an "IPA". The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a slightly drying finish. Overall, this is a pathetic little "IPA", one that exists in the style only because the label says so. ...And that's really all I can say about this bland nonsense.
