This is a rich golden-caramel color in the glass, topped with a cap of thin foam made of tiny, tightly laced bubbles. There is a present but not overpowering hop aroma that’s misleading—because the taste is all about hops! From first sip on there’s a bitter intensity—or an intense bitterness—that defines the Buckethead IPA for me. I would describe it as a sharp, biting hop-forward piney-grassy flavor, with just a touch of sweetness for balance. (458 characters)

Good beer. Was not crazy about the smell but also was not turned away by it. I prefer very strong hoppy smells. Taste is not overly hoppy but still has the slight bitter aftertaste that I enjoy. Alcohol content is perfect. I don't drink slot of beer and this is a one hitter that provides taste and kick. Overall a great sipping ipa that would not turn away non ipa drinkers. I would drink it again. (399 characters)
