I ordered a sawtooth ale and the clueless waitress brought this out. I wasn't too disappointed since left hand brewery is one of my favorites.

very earthy and strong citrus flavor. powerful hop presence. bitter bready aftertaste. very bold mouthfeel. Top 3 personal IPA's.



ABV: 6.8% not 6.7%

another great beer from lefthand.

I rated this beer as high as you will ever see me rate an IPA. I'm not a big fan of IPA's or hoppy beers but I did quite enjoy this beer. It is an IPA and is quite hoppy for my taste, but it has more to offer than just bitterness. It is fairly fruity and bready, and has a very hazy appearance. I probably won't buy another 6 pack, but will continue to throw one into the pick six from time to time. This beer reminded me a lot of NewCastle, but a touch better and went down smoother.

There is stuff floating in this bottle. I am inclined to think it is cardboard based on the awful
fish taste. Could be yeast, but then who would make a beer with such an awful taste and charge $2 per bottle in a 12-pack? This is my first beer from this brewery so who knows? It actually looks fairly decent (minus the floaties ) until you try to drink it.
