First time trying this. Tastes like a DIPA (and at 7.3% it's pretty close), with a lot of sweet malt balancing the hops. And for those who follow my reviews (all zero of you), it's clear I'm a DIPA fan, not so much for the high alcohol content (though I'm not complaining about that) but for the sweet creamy backbone that offsets the alcohol burn and hops bite. Speaking of said hops, I think the blend of six used here makes for a good cocktail, so to speak, kind of how a Canadian whiskey blend smooths out the edges of the individual components. If you're a total hophead looking for a big bitter finish, this may not be your cup of tea, but it really works for me. Cheers!

As a complete nerd, I was intrigued by the Tonberry on the can, so I grabbed a Sixer at my local (in Michigan no less) grocery get-out, and gave this one a whirl. Especially since they are a rare and random drop in my neck of the woods.
Anyway, they started out pretty user friendly at first. Tasted pretty mild for the reported ABV, but I must admit, I found it's mellowness pretty great. Kinda like Torpedo, but somehow milder. I was anticipating a gradual learning curve as is often found in such RPGs.... I mean IPAs. Normally when I sit down with a new "game", I like to smash through at least the first 6 levels to get the full effect of what I am in for.
Anyway, despite numerous attempts at leveling up, I just could not defeat this boss. I mean, I took out five of them, but that last one was no joke. Despite my attempts at switching characters and tactics, I just could not beat this sucker. Back to the drawing board. Maybe next time I'll try the spiky hair and gigantic sword on this best; and a next time there shall be!

Nicely done IPA but a little disappointing as I expected more based on the great reputation of this brewery. Nice yellow-amber color with some fluffy head and a little spotty lacing. Smells of fruity and floral hops. Tastes of more fruity, citrus hops than floral or herbal hops. Nice caramel, grain, biscuit and a malt backbone. Smooth mild finish and mouthfeel, decent carbonation.
