The best beer offered at Yankee Stadium. Therfore, the best beer ever. Poured from a 16 once can into a plastic cup while watching homerun derby against the sox makes the malts and the hops mingle to form the perfect balance.

Clear golden orange with three fingers of white five minute head. Plentiful lace.
Smell floral resin malt.
Taste is floral bitter hops with a strong malt backbone.
Mouthfeel is medium. The finish is dry and bitter but not too much so.
Overall a tasty and easy drinking IPA.

A really great beer through and through. I remember being at my college town's local festival, and they were pumping these out for $5 for three days straight. Couldn't tell you how many I bought; they were too delicious to put down! Fruity smell, beautiful feel, and heavily hopped creating a thick, pleasant head and satisfying drinking experience. It isn't terribly expensive either. Buy this.

Underwhelming in a lot of respects. My favorite thing about this beer is the pine-y overtones. They stand out with the first sip, but I will say that this one-note beer starts to fade after 2/3 of the bottle is gone. With an underwhelming middle of the road IPA smell and average look this just misses the mark. As far as cheap IPAs goes this one is nice with a flavorful meal but alone I wouldn't want to drink more than one.

355 ml bottle, exp. 02/2018, pouring in a mug. Smoothness could be more present and it would make this one more balanced. Great hops in there! Nice earthy notes, and some underlying honey too. Strong aroma and taste, which matches nicely with its full body.
