Had this one out of a 16 oz can at Krueger's Tavern in Cincinnati, and hey, this one was pungent. Taste was super fresh out of the can with a lot of bitter grapefruit/pine going on. Don't think I've ever had a 100+ ibu beer at only 6% abv. Judging by some of the other ratings I had lower expectations on this one. Really enjoyed it though, and I'd be back for more if I saw it around. A great beer for a hop head like me who wants their lupulin fix but doesn't wanna get hammered at 2 pm on a Sunday.

Wow. A gusher? And it's an IPA? I think I got about 8 ounces out of the bottle, at most. Tastes okay. Kind of like a resin tone with the wrong kind of fruits mixed in. Perhaps this is a gusher because the beer is just bad. Either way, lame experience on all ends.

Poured into a perfect pint. Bottle.

3.5 A: Clear light orange color. Two fingers of frothy off-white head. Retention is about average and a short ring of lacing is left.

4.0 S: Bright floral and citrusy hops. Grapefruit and pine underneath. Hop forward, but also contains a pleasant caramel and crackery malty backbone. Really nice.

3.75 T: Tastes like it smells. Mild-moderate bitterness. Floral, citrus, grapefruit, and piney hop flavor. Caramel and cracker malt.

4.0 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Moderately creamy and super smooth.

4.0 D: Surprisingly good beer. I had never heard of this brewery until I bought this beer, so I didn't know what to expect.

Wow. Been on BA for years and if I don't like a beer now a full review is needed?
Ok: looks fine. Taste is too English for an ipa with no bite. Didn't enjoy it.

One of my least favorite IPAs - and I'm an IPAddict.

Overly hopped mess. Nearly undrinkable. Far better options out there.
