I have to say that after the rating of 95 by BA and 100 rating by RB, I was expecting something great. Well, let's just say that I was underwhelmed. It's an IPA that dark, so there's some bitterness to it, but not too much. Similar to to great divides IPA. The Tate's is good, but greatly dissapointing for me since I'm a Stout lover. Mouthfeel is bubbly and warm notes of hops, some dark chocolates and fruits.

Overall, it's okay. Nothing great. In the same vein, I'd choose something like great divide Titan IPA instead.

That being said, I recommend stouts. Dogfish Head World wide stout is awesome.
