An all around avg beer at best. Note that I did have this after a rather bad beer so this beer may have tasted better than it it by default. King of bland and pretty unremarkable.

Tried this brew a couple times. Just plain don't think to highly of it. Very hoppy and dry, not necessarily a bad thing, but it got a burnt flavor to it that lingers.

Bitter IPA, piney, burnt wood or dried pink grapefruits someone set fire to. Kind of a gritty dirt taste afterwards that lingered a long time. Did not really like this beer much, but it is hoppy, it is an IPA and some will like it. Not for me.

12 oz bottle poured into an imperial pint glass, tasted within 90 days of bottling.
