Coyote's IPA of choice apparently. 12 oz bottle. Paid around $7.50 for a six pack. Pours a slightly hazy orange with a straw tinge to it. There is a small white head on top, nothing too incredible to look at.Smell is of floral hops with some citrous overtones. Some bready malt detectable in the background as well. Taste is crisp & hoppy, both floral & citrous, but not a massive amount of either taste..more just bitter.Some nice grainy notes come through as well, and they linger in the aftertaste. Nice crisp mouthfeel. This is quite drinkable but I don't think the taste is big enough to warrant the high ABV and price. Not much better than your average IPA and at 7.1% give me an alpha king instead.
summary: A good, crisp, clean IPA with a high ABV and high price
Serving type: bottle
