I tried this beer on draft at a bar in the summer BEFORE knowing any of the hype... and my eyes went wide after the first sip.

Every sip after that, I kept exclaiming to people at the table how good this beer was. For me, it was the kind of beer I've always been looking for. I'm really into IPAs, but I too often feel like they go overboard with the hops, rendering the beer skunky and hard to drink. This beer on the other hand had the perfect level of flavor, but was also extremely drinkable and refreshing. Medium bodied, crisp, and the aftertaste was just pure joy. Had a very very slight hint of grapefruit which made it great for warm weather.

Probably my all time favorite beer, and again, I decided that after the first sip BEFORE even having a clue about the hype.

This is one of the best Beers I have had in a long time.
Look, a nice warm amber color, looks like an IPA, a little cloudy but can see through the glass.
Head, yup there is a little if you pour it into a glass/mug.
Smell, bingo, smells like an IPA, it's an IPA.
Taste,. full body, bitter, and very smooth, with a finish that lingers, and if you don't know what a hoppy brew tastes like then try one of these. You always know a good beer when it is the first one to disappear from the cooler shelf. the cans, and the bottles were all gone today when I stopped in to grab a rack. This is not the first time, and now I'm wondering if I should horde it! :) <= hoppy face here.
Thank you Wormtown Brewery for producing such a finely crafted brew.
