Amazing beer, I have about two 4 packs left over from my trip to Burlington left over. I don't have enough time on this site to post a trade, but am willing to do so. The beer is as good as claimed and I have enjoyed them since returning home to Toledo, OH where these beers are not available.

Perfect gold color (though you're not supposed to pour it out of the can), extremely aromatic, very strong, rich, robust flavor - even with the 6 hops, the taste is not overpoweringly bitter as some traditional IPAs, but is extremely smooth and refreshing.

The marketing on the can is unique and adds to the experience of searching and getting this beer.

The only downside (personally) is that I have to travel so far to get it!
