I'll make this review short and sweet. Pours a light color with not much head to speak of. I don't care too much for looks, so let's get to the taste. This is basically, in my opinion, just a standard quality IPA. Nothing fancy or over the top here. The name certainly rings true as the first taste is a strong hoppy bitterness. Little hints of grapefruit that surprisingly lingers for longer in between sips than the strong hop taste. If you can find this for a good price, it's worth a shot, just don't expect anything life changing and you will enjoy this solid offering from Olde Hickory
