I've had this many times. It's a very good, readily available IPA. Nothing amazing, but very solid and reliable.

Serving: 12 oz bottle poured into an IPA glass (marked "enjoy by 08FEB15").

Appearance: Clear golden amber. Frothy, lasting white head with some lacing.

Smell: Layers of hops: resin, lemon rind, and some vegetal notes.

Taste: Slightly toasty, caramel malt under piney, herbal, citrus hops. Good bitterness throughout.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body, slight oiliness and medium carbonation.

Overall: A solid IPA with balanced malt and plenty of hop character.

Pretty durn good. Not quite strong as I like my IPA's but still immensely hoppy. If you're craving some intense hops content but you're not looking to get super drunk I recommend this beer strongly. It has a very strong hops flavor, but it is still very smooth. I recommend this to anyone who has the chance to sample it and will continue to keep it in my personal roster.

Transparent orange with fluffy white head. Aroma of citrus and rind, grass, grapefruit, and pine. Flavors of citrus, pine, mint, grapefruit, lemon skins, and bitterness comes smoothly followed by some booze. Medium bodied with medium carbonation.
