Appearance- It looks like beer.

Smell- Skunky booze and sweet malt.

Taste- I almost did a spit take. It tasted like malt liquor that was left out in the sun for 3 days then re-capped and put on the shelf.

Mouthfeel- Overly carbonated and thin.

Overall- One of the most undrinkable pieces of garbage I've ever poured into my mouth. Avoid at all costs. If you only have 2$ buy PBR or something.

Pours a beautiful dark amber with a persistent fluffy head. Aroma is dried fruit, boozy, sugar candy. The taste is metallic adjunct, hot like cheap vodka, malt liquor like in quality with no evidence of a double IPA anywhere but on the label. Some bitterness in the backbone but close to no hop flavors or aromas present. Nice thick mouthfeel and ample carbonation. This was a $1.99 bomber from Trader Joe's, but even the value price can't justify wanting to drink this on a regular basis. Good for cooking with but that is all.
