When you talk about a brewery that consistently churns out average to below average products, no more is this more apparent than with their hearty or hoppy beers. Here we have an offering that actually looks the part. Nice and amber, good 3/4" off white head on top, decent retention and lacing. Aroma, hey, aromatic hops, who needs those? Let's just accentuate the crystal malt and party like its 1999.

Taste is more grapefruit bitterness and caramel malt. Heavy body, adequate carbonation. Alcohol noticeable. This really tows the line between English and American ipa, but for the C hop bitterness, this one probably should fall in the latter category at this point in its life.

Pours a nice yellow/orange color, pretty nice carbonation, with a pretty nice one-finger thick/creamy off-white head, which leaves some sticky lacing behind. The nose is hoppy, malty, with some citrus. The taste is hoppy, slightly malty, with some citrus. Medium body. Overall, a pretty tasty brew.
