Very Good
StormchaserStormchaser
Notes: This bold, blonde American IPA employs a healthy dose of wheat malt and generous amounts of Crystal, Centennial, and Citra hops. The hops provide a great citrusy bouquet and abundant notes of grapefruit and orange, while the wheat malt provides a crisp tartness to this lighter-bodied IPA.

Smell is of lemon-lime citrus reminiscent of Sprite, malt sweetness, and a little bit of pine resin. The taste is fairly bitter up front with a strong citrus flavor. Another not overly complex but fairly easy drinking IPA.

Good Stuff

I spent a week in Kansas and tried a different beer every night. This unfortunately was from my last night in town. I would have been happy as can be drinking this every night.

Pouring it out of the bottle into one of those mini 6 oz. hotel glasses, it has a rust color. There's just enough head. Enough to generate a splendid aroma. It has a great smell and a great taste of IPA. It's not overly bitter. The only problem is that I think the taste and smell are a little weak.
