What can I say? There is many things I cannot stand about this beer. Firstly, the malt profile is astringent and very bitter. I just doesn't work for me. From a brewery that's usually top notch, this is a lackluster effort that tastes out of sink, and is not terribly drinkable.

Inversion Ipa is loaded with more different types of hops than I can begin to remember. This beer created a large head and had a nice amount of carbonation. The aroma is strong very strong of hops. If you are a fan of strong hop sent and taste you'll like this beer but for me I give it a F. I do not like the strong bitterness and after taste it gives.

Inversion has a sharp hops taste which attacks your tastebuds with a vengeance. Your eyes squeeze shut as you wince and cock your head to one side, thinking the action will help make the flavor pass. Your palate will beg for cleansing, as the flavor will stay with you for many hours. This is a beer which takes a lot of effort to finish.

Deep amber color, yellowish head of a solid finger. Lace is nice.

Aroma is....well, it's not bad, but it's 110% off. There's big buttery aromas, malt sweetness, nuttiness. I'm getting a "not so fresh" feeling.

The taste is bitter. Nicely actually. But, it's not hoppy. There's faint citrus notes, but it mostly hits on some maltier notes.

The feel is good' crisp, slick, oily, and medium in bodied.

Drink isn't great. I'd love to try this and be ensured it's fresh. It's still drinkable and it's not bad...but it's completely off for the style and I have to rate it as such.
