Nothing to write home about. Not pleasant on the nose and lacks any real hoppy taste that I enjoy regarding IPA. Taste is average. I've bought it a few times when building a 6-pack, but likely won't venture to it again. It's just okay.

There are better extra pale ales out there but this will do if you are in the Atlanta area. Not a bad beer, decent taste for sure. The marketing is highly amusing too!
