Served in a pint glass, poured from a bottle.
A - A perfectly appropriate orange-brown amber color, long lasting tan-ish head
S - The hops here are straightforward and strong, with a subtle citrus backing
T - Very hoppy, as it should be. A bit bitter for my taste, and the bitterness lingers forever, but it's not really unpleasant. How an IPA should taste.
M - The bitterness REALLY hangs on, but the overall feel is smooth and easy drinking without being too watery.
D - Not being a huge fan of IPA's, I'm not sure how many of these I could stomach. One is a-ok for me.
Overall, It's not a favorite, but I'd definitely drink it again. It's bitter, but what self-respecting IPA isn't? Basically, I wouldn't specifically seek it out, but I'd definitely drink it if I was offered some.
