I have tried well over 100 IPA's and most of the popular, highly rated ones from Dogfish, Goose Island, Founders, etc., etc. This little brewery in Oklahoma makes the best one, hands down. It delivers a classic IPA smell and taste that is off the charts. All IPA's are bitter and for a lot of people (including myself) they can be a little to harsh....not this one. You get the hoppy bitterness but it has an amazing smoothness and mouthfeel that adds a level of drinkablity that most IPA's don't have. Pay no attention to the negative reviews on this beer.......if you have a FRESH can there is no way it will disapoint.

Being out of state, I picked up a 4-pack in Ardmore, OK. I like IPAs. This one tasted like the brewers shoved a pine tree into each can. Nothing wrong with that! I'd recommend the cans, but would like to revisit F5 on tap to see the difference.

If you prefer 100+ IBUs, pick up an F5!

I love the grapefruit, citrus aroma and taste. Crispy. This is such a great Oklahoma beer that I can have locally on tap at one of my fave pizza places, Hideaway. Pairs nicely with their high end pizza. Sorry I'm deprived of drafts here. This is definitely low on the bitter scale, which I like. Very smoothe. So.. get your own 4 pack (no sharing), pace yourself, its a delicious porch pounder lol.

Look: Beautiful orange-amber color. Cloudy, partially-filtered clarity that is just outstanding. Head is a white, medium- density foam that leaves laces on the pint glass I poured it into.
Smell: Despite the moderately high abv, alcohol presence is limited. Nose-stinging citrus hops, basically. See taste.
Taste: Resinous pine notes and grapefruit, pretty much. Pretty straightforward, but simply on point for style. I will say that the
Feel: Nice lingering head smooth out this medium-bodied beer. Despite its bitterness, is extremely "drinkable" for the style.
Overall: easy to put away, hard to put down. +points because it's brewed by a local brewery in my home city.

L: Drank it from the can, didn't see it.
S: Smells like grapefruit and maybe a bit of mint.. It' a refreshing smell
T: Overwhelmingly bitter. It does have a nice citrusy after taste though
F: Light-medium carbonation, consistency slightly higher than water
O: If you've not had and IPA before, you may want your first one to be under 100+ IBU. For a drink with this much bitterness, it is very good. It doesn't quite match my tastes though and I probably wont buy it again.

One of my favorite ipa's. It's hoptastic but somehow doesn't over power you and let's a little citrus and malt come through. I Always take a very small sip to adjust the pallet when I have one but it's my go to off the shelf ipa.
