Bottle from Frugal Mcdougals in Nashville, TN.
Appearance: Amber, cloudy, with a slight off white head.
Smell: Piney, very coast coast IPA typical smell, hops really hit your nostrils on this one, and it smells pretty damn good.
Taste: This beer has a lot of hops. Very tasty hops at that. This is what I think a typical west coast IPA should taste like, although not quite as good as Stone IPA. The alchohol comes through a lot more on this one than say a Two-Hearted, its not quite as balanced, but it's still very drinkable. It tastes more like an 8 or 9% IPA. Subtle citrus initial taste followed by a slightly bitter, yet still smooth hop aftertaste.
Overall: I will probably buy this again, as it was on sale for $9 a 6-pack. It does the west coast IPA style very well, however, it does not compare to a Two Hearted or Stone IPA. I would reccomend anyone that has a fondness for a well crafted, hoppy beer, to give this a try.

Good sh*t. This is beer. It is a good beer. It is cheap, it is drinkable and this beer will get you drunk. My girlfriend had wine, I had this beer. I had others but this is the beer I liked most. I will order this beer again. It was a bit strong for my 8 year old, so we mixed it with soda water.
Serving type: on-tap
