Had on nitro. Not fond of the nitro making it a bit hot on the finish.

Disclaimer: I am a hophead and this is my session IPA. I will always want to try differ beers and differ styles but if this is on tap, hard for me to avoid. Today, wanted it,walked to a couple (local in walking distance) bars to get it on tap. : ). I consider this a "1.5" IPA. It's not quite a double but def not a single. More of a crisp, clean IPA, no real malt, but nothing on the citrussy side, more of a lemony, organic taste. No real sweetness or floral flavor like a Racer 5 or 2 hearted, just straight hops with a touch of slight fruit bite. Settles smoothly on the tongue and even after taste. I could drink these all night, although at my age and # of kids! that won't happen any time soon. LOL. Becoming a big fan of Southern Tier.

Very good imperial IPA, I love how it is not overly carbonated.
