Bomber poured into a pint glass.

When reading reviews, people keep mentioning West coast IPA. After one sip I muttered the same thing. Its malt forward but quite delicious.

This better gets much better after warming for 5 minutes. Very tasty but not earth shattering. Picked up a bottle for the Blackhawks game and I'm enjoying it thoroughly.

Cheers!
