2.48/5  rDev -30.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

Paid $1.49 for a single...

The beer pours a pure amber base with a small white head, good rentention but minimal lacing effects. The aroma was a decent mix of hops, one would expect this from any IPA though.

The taste just didn't do it for me in any way, after the beer relased down the throat the taste was a blast of alcohol, thus leaving that as an aftertaste. Before this aftertaste, the IPA works, but that's it. Mouthfeel is just average, a little rough in the mouth and it isn't highly drinkabile, I wouldn't drink another at all.

Final Thought: This was disappointing, after the first drink I took I wish I would have chosen the Anchor Liberty to review instead... Not a good beer!
