Paid the toll on this on $4.25 for the single at the House of 1,000 beers.

Very cloudy IPA with good lacing sticking to all sides. Smell is quite good hoppy bite. Taste is a good balance of malt and hops with a very homely taste.

Overall I kind of regret buying this its not clean or crisp tasting compared to cheaper alternatives. Skip this one if its over 3 dollars a pop.

From 05/29/15 notes at August Henry's in Pittsburgh, PA. 16 oz. pour in a pint glass.

Decent IPA...not super hoppy, more malty, but easy to drink. Some pine, light bitter bite. Would give it another shot but not a hop bomb.
