Wow! Smells like a new-mown lawn! This ale is the finest draught I have ever had. Yes, really!

The sad thing is that I can't get it in Boston, except for once in a great while when the Goose Island Pub Packs appear...and the last time they did the Honkers was a month past "Best By" so it ended up being a 10-pack.

This IPA is hoppy, oh, yes. It looked beautiful on the bar at Wrigleyville, backlit as it was, but it was the aroma that blew me away. Really earthy and fresh; the taste was the same, tangy and dry, but complex.

If you can get this stuff, do so. If you can't, look for Hop Devil, which is as good, or better in my opinion, since I can actually obtain it!
