This is my go to beer.

A: Dark golden reddish color.

S: Hops hops and more hops.

T: What I think a IPA should taste like. Tastes even better as you drink more (bottles).

M: It does not feel like a rather strong beer.

O: I love this beer.

Comments: My options are probably way too subjective as this is the beer that got me into beer.
