Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

Lucky Kat purrs as he pours with a grin on his mangy face and a grin in his searching eye. He sits on the fence he calls home, dividing up from down. Is he an imperial beast or a pale soul from the east? Only he knows and we know only this: if you reach out to pet him he'll bite back with a big, hoppy kiss.

60 IBU

3.23/5  rDev -8%
look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

appearance - cloudy copper color, decent head, no lacing on glass

aroma - very little, almost no hop smell

taste - appropriately bitter, medium malt flavor. as a homebrewer, it seems they had the hops in during the full boil so you get more bitterness and less hop aromatics than you'd get by adding hops at the end. almost more british than american ipa. i just re-read the description and it says its dry hopped? bit of a surprise there, as i'm not tasting it.

mouthfeel - good carbonation, bit of a heavy aftertaste

overall, good but not remarkable, especially for an IPA. seems more like a pale ale.
