Tasting notes at on the menu say that this beer is compared favorably to west-coast IPAs, and the IBU rating of 66 certainly would suggest that; however there is a serious lack of refinement that prevents this reviewer from making such a favorable comparison. The bitterness of this beer was very heavy handed, almost medicinal in nature. Compared to Big Eye or Stone IPA, both of which pack more IBUs, Fate's APA was no where near as smooth or pleasant to drink. That having been said, the beer was well crafted, but blunt. I can see the underpinnings of a great beer, hopefully with a little more experimentation they can turn this from hop-bomb to a sessionable IPA.
