Look: Amber with a surprisingly large white head.

Smell: Huge blast of sweet hops and citrus. There's definitely no subtlety about this one.

Taste: Very bitter and heavy on the hops like any IPA. Some citrus and floral notes.

Mouthfeel: Not too thick, not too thin, just enough carbonation. Right in the middle.

Overall: I've never really been a fan of IPAs, and I often feel like there's a sort of competition in bitterness. That said, this isn't bad.

I was in heaven from the second I tasted this beer. I bought as a pick 6 from kroger and my only complaint is that I only picked 1. The best tasting apa I have ever had. Very great tasting my joke is its a bit nutty (69?) For the average non snobby beer fan it is a must.

Pours a mild amber hue with a two finger head into my glass.

Sweet/doughy upfront with some hop bitterness.

Pine bitterness and doughy bread.

Decent piney finish.

Solid for the style. Worth a try at least once.

12 oz brown bottle - not dated

Batch 69 poured a hazy yellow gold producing a generous 2-finger off-white bubbly head that dissipated slowly. The nose is dominated by citrus, some pine and floral hops. Batch 69 tastes like an American IPA. Citrus, grapefruit, orange, pears and some sweetness are present. The IPA is well balanced and easy to drink with only a light bitterness. Not being a hophead I like that. Mouth feel is smooth, with a light- medium body and lively carbonation.

An easy drinking IPA.

Got a draft at a restaurant. Pretty good IPA, but nothing memorable.
