Bottle from Trader Joes. Pour looks great, expectations dashed in short order. Aroma is musty and funky, taste follows with some wet paper and paste. Almost hits the mark, but falls short.

Looks like an interesting craft beer, but kinda just tastes like a shitty domestic beer. Doesn't smell or taste like an ipa at all.

Looks good, smells good, but it just did not taste good. Reminds me of typical 1990's IPA's. I liked the price though. 3.30
