This arrived in 6-packs to our local wine/brew shop just this week. I've been watching the show and I gathered this outfit knows how to produce quality brew. Out of the bottle & into a Oktoberfest glass, I am detecting a slight medicinal aftertaste that garnishes an otherwise enjoyable sip, clove-infused seeming, but not too sweet. Carbonation out of the bottle was intense but the lacing on the glass is inviting. A bit brassy for what I look for in an IPA but the only other one to select of theirs on the shelf was the Imperial IPA and it's got equivalent ABV as this one, maybe one of their regular ales shows up under 8% I will notice less medicinal quality. Cheers~
