Poured from a 22 ounce bottle. Great foam appears as you transfer this beer from bottle to glass and the great aromas of hop extract emerge, inviting you to savor this beer. No sign of the IBUs on this brew but after a few sips it seems to hover around 50 to 60.
The color of this brew is of a light copper color with a white foam head. The immediate reaction on the palate is that of a definite hop profile and a subtle dry finish. A spicy flavor is definite in every sip but overall well balanced so as not to discourage finishing this great beer. Wouldn't mind re-buying this beer for a second take, only problem is that it will be hard to find.
Serving type: bottle

Very good beer with a powerful punch. Not just any IPA. I had it on tap at a Karl Strauss brewery. They will occasionally feature it as brewers choice. The nice thing about actually going to the brewery is you can try anything on tap. Plus the food is good.
Serving type: on-tap
