Pored into a pint glass and this beer looks wonderful. It looks exactly as a good IPA should; nice fluffy white head, nice amber colour, lacing and small head sticks all the way to the last drop. And speaking of last drop, this is one of the most drinkable IPAs i have ever had. At 7.2% I could get in trouble with this one as it is not yet 2:00 p.m. and Im 1/4 done with my sixpack. The taste of this beer was wonderfully full and bitter. The only thing that took it down a notch was after the initial pore, the aroma left. Because smell and taste are so interrelated with no sweet aroma I did not get the sweet after taste that I love. Overall I would have this beer for any day of the week, or anytime of the day for that matter, and I suggest it to anyone looking for a hearty IPA.

Another great IPA that I think everyone should try it smelled great,wasn't hard to go down and didn't leave that horrible bitter aftertaste in your mouth when your done drinking it. Just wish I would have poured it In a glass rather than straight from the bottle but other than that it was great
