I had this while dining at Bone-Fish Grill. I thought it was on tap, so a bottle was a little bit of a disappointment (not that that's the beers fault). Typical IPA aroma and a bright orange amber color with light carbonation. It had a good mouth feel, and then a surprising finish/after taste. Almost a tannin like taste from a red wine. It was worth trying, but I doubt I'll try it again. I've found other IPAs I like more.

A somewhat plain and basic beer lacking hops in what we'd expect of an IPA. Slightly reminds me of the 'tea' you make during a brew then carbonated. Floral on the front decent mouth feel with an overwhelming barley that lasts all the way through.

Perhaps weak or light hops with a flavor that lingers a little longer than desired.

A very drinkable beer that would be great on the river or in the summer, but not one I'd buy off the tap or out of the rack unless I was limited on options or wanted to drink in the sun. Someone could pound this in seconds and not even realize it.
