The bottle I'm looking at says "Brewed and Bottled by Olde Saratoga Brewing Company, Saratoga Springs.NY"...not Mendocino Brewing out of Cali..funny thing is the pic featured is correct! Nevertheless, solid IPA, thanks to my yankee bud for transporting south!

Actually better overall than it rates broken down. Beautiful deep golden color. Skunky smell unfortunately with an average creamy mouth feel. Taste is malt and distinct copper aftertaste. But the sum is greater than its parts in that overall its a good beer after a long day at work. The 81 rating is right on.

Nice IPA. Nice flavor. Hardly any smell or head. Fairly generic, but good enough. I'd pair with a pizza and call it good.
