A- Amber with great carbonation. An average pour created a huge head on this beer. It was a very thick, creamy head that took a while to dissipate. Left great lacing and a small head remained throughout.
S- musty. Can't really get a lot of hops or malt out of it, just smells musty. definitely it's weakest characteristic.
T- A very solid tasting brew. Good hop characteristics, but stays away from the grapefruit, which is a welcome change in my opinion. Nice malt backbone that contrasts the bitter of the hops very well. Very refreshing.
M- This is very smooth for an IPA. It doesn't really leave much of an aftertaste in the mouth. This beer really hit the spot after doing some yard work today. I drank the entire bottle in less than 45 minutes. It went down smooth and easy, but with great flavor.
O- A good brew that is great for the price. $3.99/bomber is a steal. i will buy more. check it out. A few of these would be sooo much more enjoyable than colt .45 and wouldn't cost you a whole lot more. Get it while you can.
