i've found my new favorite IPA. my father in law purchased a 6 pack at Kroger. he said it was $8.99 a 6 pack, which i felt was much more reasonable than some of the others out there. very crisp, clean, not too many IBUs. poured perfectly into my pint glass. love the color and feel on the tongue.

First time trying this beer. Poured from growler into a pint glass.

A: Pours a clear rich copper with minimal head. If you can get at least a half finger head the lacing holds.

S: Nothing really sticks out, some citrus notes but that's all.

T: A little resin up front, getting that orange, grapefruit, mango citrus flavors. Not much hop bite to it. Pretty balanced, smooth and dry. I was expecting more of a bite, their website says 104.1 IBU. Maybe it's there but you don't taste it. Really sweet undertones.

M: Not bad at all, just wish it had more of a bitter bite. Carbonation is perfect.

O: I enjoyed this beer. Definitely will drink again. The more you drink the more the sweetness comes out. At 6% ABV it's perfect for me in 6 packs. Really true to the style of the beer.

Appearance : Golden brown color.

Pours with a huge head. Big for an IPA i think.

A lot of carbonation bubbles. Quite bubbly for an IPA.

Smell : Huge hops. A bit of citrus.

Taste: Well the bitterness grows on you with every sip. First sip - does not feel that bitter going in, after taste is a bit bitter. And then it just keeps on getting hoppier.

Loved it just for this.

Decent alcohol content. Would have been a 'killer' of a beer for me if it had the strength too of a DIPA. A bit oily, a bit herby.

Serves my purpose.

Loved it just for the bitterness 104 wow.. My palette and my neck felt it real well.
