Straight from the tap, at a restaurant just a few miles from the brewery:
Looks like a slightly deeper than usual Budweiser.
VERY subtle bouquet. Raspberries or oranges perhaps?
Tastes pretty smooth. Nothing life changing, but very smooth. Like a really clean Budweiser. Slightly bitter & dank aftertaste isn't bad.
Just the right out of tickling carbonation.

12 oz bottle poured gently into a 16 oz mug, I need room to swirl
Clear yellow-orange, thick and very light colored beige head that is long lasting with much lacing.
Malt and hops dominate the smell with citrus and pine.
Flavor is sweet from the malt upfront, dries out as the hop flavor kicks in yet is not to bitter.
Rich mouthfeel for an IPA , behaves like the flavor as it thins but is not watery.
I am glad this beer rates so high, it is my favorite IPA considering it is reasonably priced (6-er for $10.49), well balanced and not overly hoppy...dispite the name.
Time to recycle, I have at least 8 empty 6-ers in the garage.
