Nothing fancy here; just a damn solid IPA. If you don't like fruit or pine-heavy flavor in an IPA this is definitely one to try. Pours a dark golden color and maintains quite a thick, lingering head. Smells crisp and hoppy; tastes just like a no-bullshit IPA should - hops are very evident but not overwhelming. Alcohol content is perfect for this style at 7.5%.

Great IPA. One of my go to beers. Has a unique hoppy aroma that I love. World Class says it all.

I'm a little disappointed. Good and hoppy, but I feel it could be a bit bolder with other flavors. Still better than a bud.

Quite delicious....balanced, slightly bitter but not overly strong or overpowering. I could tip a few of these.
