As an IPA fan this just became a front runner for me. It has a kick with near 9% alcohol so you don't do many of these at one sitting. Both hoppy and citrusy. For me I don't know how they would improve on this one. Loved it and will definitely have more.

A big thanks to the legendary woodychandler for this beer. Poured from a 16 oz. can. Has a beige color with a 1 inch head. Smell is balnaced citrus hops and caramel malts. Taste starts off very hoppy, some citrus, caramel malts at the end. Bitter and desert dry. Feels medium bodied in mouth and overall is a good quality beer.

Golden Amber color poured into an IPA glass from a 16oz can. Piney, citrus hop aromas give way to a hoppy palate, pine, grapefruit, citrus Flavors, not a whole lot of sweetness but it works. Only drawback, is the lack of body, could use a little more maltiness, but still very good.
