I'll make this review short and sweet. Pours a light color with not much head to speak of. I don't care too much for looks, so let's get to the taste. This is basically, in my opinion, just a standard quality IPA. Nothing fancy or over the top here. The name certainly rings true as the first taste is a strong hoppy bitterness. Little hints of grapefruit that surprisingly lingers for longer in between sips than the strong hop taste. If you can find this for a good price, it's worth a shot, just don't expect anything life changing and you will enjoy this solid offering from Olde Hickory

"Enjoy me before" date of Feb. 2015, purchased at Sam's in Durham, NC.

This excellent brew deserves more love, so though I had sworn off reviewing I had to add a quick note:

Wonderful full-bodied IPA with complex array of notes and one of the best finishes of any beer I have ever had. One of those beers that is best from mid-palate to the finish. Highly recommended.
