From the bottle at a party. No assessment of appearance. Aromas were floral, hop resin, orange zest. Flavors were bitter grassy hops, dinner roll, grapefruit rind. Oily mouthfeel, medium bodied, bitter finish.

This beer is ok but rather bland for an IPA

Part of the Hop Tour 6 Pack

A clear dark amber color, with almost no head and mild lacing around the edges.

This is slightly dank and resinous, leaving a little of that sticky hop taste on your tongue. Lots of complex hop character going on, but will very little malt backbone to accentuate. This is all about the hops.

Overall, pretty good. This is the type of IPA that someone would like if you wish for a more complex hop forward IPA.

Probably will not seek out and purchase again. Would drink if available though. This was a nice study of different hop beers (hop tour 6 pack), but there are better options out there for an IPA.

Really overly bitter from what I remember, I actually threw up and I drink IIPA's. Not a balanced beer at all. Blaghhhh.
