This is, indeed, very much a work of art. It has a nice, hoppy punch, but not the kind that whacks you over the head with bitterness and intensity. Oddly enough, the hops taste almost sweet in this IPA. Well done.

Some sort of off flavor. I love IPAs, but I just don't like this one.

Andy Warhol inspired label on the can, but instead of Marilyn Monroe faces, it's a bunch of hop cones. The beer pours out cloudy, amber, and forms a craggy head. The smell is quite an intense mix of juicy fruits like grapefruit, passion fruit, pineapple, and melon. The taste is also more of the dank, resinous hops, which are tropical in character, but have a little lower bitterness. There is a hit of big spice and earthy herbs in the finish.Body is quite dense, and the alcohol is not attempted to be hidden much. I picked up a four pack of this during a visit to Charleston. I hope they expand distribution to Atlanta area soon, because my first impression of this offering is quite good.

This review may not be giving this beer justice as I believe it may have been an older bottle. Then again there was no date stamp so there was no way to tell, definitely less hop forward than expected.
