Found a bomber of this for just $5.99 at a local Giant Eagle. Good deal!

A - Slightly oily in appearance it has a nice 1/2 inch plush sticky white head atop of a light amber brown colored beer. Fed by carbonation bubbles this beer looks great!
S - Not intensely hoppy in the nose mostly citrus and mango like hops really digging it. Not sure the hate I got no ethanol smells and a good biscuit like malt body.
T - Classic West Coast like hops but dialed back a notch more balanced with a citrus like bitter zest. Body is balanced with cracker like malts and some sugars.
M - Best part of this beer drinks like a regular IPA but DAYMN clocks in at 9% plus!

Overall I was scared to try this since I HATE their west coast IPA but enjoy their Palate Wrecker. To me its somewhere in between but very balanced and drinkable. LOVE the not so lingering hop bitterness. Well worth the price!
