I have just recently got into trying IPA's, yes I know IPA noob here as of now. But this one was one of the first ones I tried. Found it at a local grocery store one town over in East Hartford and loved it. Not only did it have a "healthy" alchohol content which is nice but the flavor was fantastic. I have had some IPA's that drink like aunt jemima's syrup. I guess you get what you pay for as the saying goes. I would highly recommend this if you enjoy IPA's that have some good "horsepower" to them.

I would give this a for but for other reasons than just it quality. In my ratings I like to be fair and just. The reason I give it a 4 all around is because of the low price point. Other beers of the same quality cost significantly more. I think that this is wonderful for $9 in Connecticut. The look is blond maybe a 6 srm the smell is malty and sweet with a nice hit of pine. The taste is lighter than most doubles but that's a pluse cause alcohol is not really the first thing you taste. Its only down side is that it finishes with a poor mans beer after taste flat and boozy but then you take and bit and it's back down happy hop road. I wouldn't nurse this one I would drink it cold real cold. It really feels like just an IPA it's mellow and smooth. Overall it has its ups and downs but for the good price it's definitely and affordable double

Melon, orange, Grapefruit pith and pine. Fairly malt forward. From what I can tell, this was canned yesterday. It's really not that good. I guess it gets better as it warms, but not by much. tastes like its old. Ugh.
