As an IPA this gets a zero because it does not smell, taste or drink like an IPA in the slightest. However, it drinks smells and tastes like one of the best scotch ales I've ever had. Delicious, but not what I expected.

Very little hop aroma. Fairly flat with minimal bitterness.

Drain pour. Poured from a clear bottle. Pale in color. What little flaovior this beer had, was off-putting. A lot skunky.

Smells like and looks like a Budweiser. Not a fan of the aftertaste either.
