A decent take on an American IPA, well-balanced, if not particularly hoppy. Pours a nice hazy brownish-gold, with solid lacing on the glass. It won't blow your mind, but it's a highly drinkable, perfectly pleasant beer. Highly recommended for anyone unused to IPAs or adverse to bitter brews.

A rather brown pour, dark copper and red kind of color. Far darker than your average IPA. Off white head, about 1/4" deep, a little thin.

Aroma was hoppy, heavy malt aspect to it. Grains. Comes off as lots of Cascade hops.

Taste, substantially bitter. Tons of bittering hops. Again, Cascades give off the grapefruit character and pithiness. Big hit of caramel throughout it.

Man used to drink these quite often, I don't know what the deal is now, but their distribution seems to be almost nil. Seems like they continually lower the heft and abv of this beer every year or so.

While it used to be pretty enjoyable, every subsequent time I have it, it comes off less impressive.
