Drank this beer with my good friend William Pang (Queens, NY).
Poured a murky dark copper color with a medium off-white head and good lacing.
Not much smell to report, but the little that is there is a fruity sweetness that says nothing of the hops in this beer.
The taste is very similar to the smell. Not as much hops initially as I expected. Much more sweet malt flavor than hops at first, but eventually moves aside to reveal the hoppy bitterness I was promised.
Thin mouthfeel, well carbonated, and definitely bitter on the tail end. Very dry finish.
Not a great IPA, mostly because of the lack of stinging hop character. However, definitely a good beer that I could handle a few of in each sitting.
