Found this 22 oz. bottle at a local beer seller for only $3.99. My first thought was "cheap beer" = cheap taste. Well, its not a Hercules but it certainly is worth the price!
A- Rusty amber color. Nice head as well. Thick and frothy, but settles quickly.
S- Even in the smell you can detect the metallic hints inside the strong hoppy smell.
T- Many flavors come through. Of course the hops. But as some have mentioned there is an unmistakable metalic taste. There is citric peel, and certain harshness. Not as smooth as higher rated IPA's.
M- Feels OK. Not a detriment.
D- While it is interesting, and for the price it is fantastic(!), it may only serve as a novel way to start a session, leading to another beer for the evening.
