I’ve had this many times before, but, having just joined the site, I decided to write a review this time. The beer is dated 6/3/14 (about two months old). It pours a straw yellow that borders on copper under certain lighting. The aroma is pleasant with a subtle citrus characteristic, but predominantly earthy resinous hops. The taste has more citrus than the nose would suggest and is full of orange and lemon zest. The beer finishes with a sturdy, resinous hop bitterness that lingers on the tongue for awhile. It is medium bodied with a modest amount of carbonation, which suits the style well. Overall, a solid beer. At a reasonable price, it is a nice go-to beer.

Poured from 22 ounce bottle into a Shaker pint glass, there was no "best by" date that I could find.

APPEARANCE: pours a lovely copper color with 1 finger off-white head that dissipated quickly leaving a thin broken layer of bubbles, medium carbonation. There were some suspended bits floating about, very nice.

SMELL: pepper, pine and brown sugar.

TASTE: the taste follows the nose, initially sweet then a nice piney hop blast with some pepper for good measure. The sweetness and the hops are very balanced and not too over the top.

PALATE: medium carbonation and body.

OVERALL. this is a fine IPA and reasonably priced at $4.99 for 22 ounce bomber. This beer strikes the right balance between malt and hops. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys the style and would not hesitate to buy this again.

This is my go to beer no matter the season. It's clean, goes down easy, and smells great. It's one of the better IPAs I have had it's really dope. I suggest it to anyone looking to step away from store bought light beer and into a really quality beer.
