Pours clear amber, great carbonation. Creamy vanilla head with moderate lacing. Aroma isn't crazily hoppy...it's kind of spicy, some malty tones. Pretty average in this respect.
Taste is great. Rather heavy in the mouth, it's got a creamy, buttery feel. Fairly bitter, not outrageously so but you can tell it's an IPA. I tend to prefer the really bright, outrageously hopped California IPAs, and this one is a little more refined. You don't get as much of that dominant grapefruit citrus. But it's still very enjoyable and fruity. Citrus, sour green apple, and a sugary malt play with the piney hop bite. That buttery malt follows through. There's a sort of refined candy taste that mixes well with the bitters. A very drinkable IPA at a solid price that packs a good amount of booze. I'm a fan.

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.
