On X-Mas we were invited to our neighbors' home for dinner. He is a beer fanatic. He probably dreams about beer. He has a man-cave with a mini-fridge filled with beer. He has glasses hanging on the wall specifically designated for drinking beer only. He also has a kegerator. The guy is a beer lover. So at some point during the conversation Precious overheard us talking, and she must have heard me say that I currently have a taste for IPAs.

So after work she called me. She was in the supermarket and wanted to know the type of IPA that I preferred. Precious is a wonderful woman. I mentioned a brand, but evidently she couldn't find that brand so she came home with this.

It's a lovely color, a little darker and redder than a lot of IPAs that I've had. The first thing I do with an IPA is smell it, just inhale that wholesome goodness, that distinct smell of the IPA. This has the distinct IPA smell, but it's more subtle; it's not overwhelming which isn't necessarily a good thing, but it works for this beer. I like a good, strong IPA smell. And the taste. Oh, the taste. It had the distinct IPA taste, but, again, not overwhelming. All in all, it's a great IPA; Goldilocks would like this. It's not too strong; it's not weak; it's just right.

I really enjoyed this beer.
