12oz brown glass pry-top with a production code but no freshness date.
Appearance: A nice, clear and bright medium orange amber with two and a half fingers of fluffy, bone-white foam. Sticks to the glass and won't let go!
Nose: Lots of grapefruit with a prickly pine needle undertone. A little whisper of malt makes its way through all the citrus hops. It smells like it's going to be fairly dry.
Palate: Aggressive hops. A little prickly both from alcohol and hop bitterness right up front. As that subsides, grapefruit, scorched citrus, dried leaves, candied ginger and a little dried malt towards the finish. The hop flavor is very fresh and almost perfumed tasting. Body is medium to light.
Notes: This beer is really hoppy, dry and pretty bitter. My only complaint is about the mouthfeel...it seems a little watery on the mid-palate. The bitterness is there, but not the texture. A GREAT session IPA, especially for the bucks, but not necessarily something that I'm going to drink all the time. Love to try it on draft sometime.

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
