Save-on in Mentor, a store less than two miles from my house, recently added a few taps from which to sell a great selection of growlers. I bought one of these last night and drank most of it myself. That's really unnecessary!

It's a pretty, well crafted beer and the head never got wimpy. The aroma is strong, malty, yeasty (a little) and very hoppy and piney. The taste is the same, but a little sweeter than I would like (only a very little). The aftertaste won't let you forget what you are drinking.

Overall this is a huge beer that I would never refuse, but more than one or three is more than is necessary.

A-Golden amber in color with a bright white half-finger head. Minimal lacing

S-Mangoes, peaches are very profound at first. A strong, crisp citrus smell burns as the sweet fruit smell fades away. The piney smell is a bit overpowering.

T-Bitter, citrusy fruits with a sweet mango aftertaste. The piney note in the smell comes through strong in the taste and is a bit too strong in the finish.

MF-crisp, highly carbonated. A bit dry.

O-IPA's are one of my least favorite styles of beer, but this was a pretty good brew. The sweet fruit smell is fantastic, but it is overpowered in the taste by a more bitter fruit and piney note. Definitely worth a try and is a good sessionable IPA.
