This is the first beer that I had from this brewing company. Good rendition of a Belgian IPA. Amber in color and not to hoppy. Goes down fairly smooth.

Probably my favorite beer to purchase, but only occasionally. Packs a puch but isn't overly hoppy like some IPA's. Love Raging Bitch!

It feels great. Other than being a bit too bitter, it's fine. It's not super drinkable, but it's a nice beer to try.

This is one I thought I had reviewed years ago. Kind of popular around here, but I never really got it. Pours a huge wet head that fades quickly. Nose is yeasty with herbs and medicinal hops.

The yeast covers everything in the taste, and when the hops break out later in the sip, they are smothered in the same yeastiness, evoking a combination of metal and soap. The aftertaste is particularly astringent. Not really my cup of tea.

Amber color with medium carbonation. Aroma of hops,yeast,and slight bit of fruit,citrus,and. Pine. I usually don't drink a lot of ipas but this was a pleasant change.no particular taste stood out which worked for this as it was fairly smooth,easy to drink and not too bitter. An interesting take on an ipa that's worth giving a try
