I'm not sure why I even bother with this brewery anymore. I can't remember I've had a great beer from them. Curiosity, I guess? Either way, this beer adds little to their "hoppy pale ale" lineup that needed to be added. Great head and nice medium body, but the flavors are just bitter hops, caramel and bread malts, slight buttery nose, and of course that lovely, oxidized wet cardboard flavor we all know and love that keeps popping up in their beers. I might be just about finished with these guys.

A nice IPA taste and aroma. If you like hop aroma and flavor, this is a very good beer. It is golden and the fine bubble just hover in the glass, almost like jello or what beer might look like without gravity; odd. Good stronger IPA from aroma through taste to aftertaste.

Pretty good IPA! Little bit of an after taste. Was light considering the abv which is too high for me to drink more then one of. Would be good with a meal.
