Picked this one up the other night on a whim. Poured a deep amber color into a pint glass, head is minimal and dissipated quickly. Not very much nose to it, a bit of citrus. Mouth-feel was a tad watery. The malt was dominant over the hops, not very much bitterness to it at all.

Overall: About average. I definitely wouldn't go out of my way to try it, if there's other IPA's available that you enjoy, you're safer going with them. Would drink again if my options were extremely limited. (489 characters)

Strong hops up front with a subtle calm aftertaste. (51 characters)
