    Wow this is a bad beer. Dirty & phenolic. Total disappointment.

    Still love the Gansett seasonal tall boys though.

    Kind of disappointing seeing this get mediocre reviews, now I'm not really as excited to try it. 'Gansett should have went a different route with the anniversary beer IMO instead of the DIPA that everyone seems to be doing, and they should they have canned it most importantly.

    Trying another, yes bitter but not horrible. Smell is fresh hoppiness. It is what it is 122ibu imperial ipa that's bitter. You can do worse for $6. It's a good addition to local limited brews. Glad I got a bottle.

    Picked one up at Wakefield Liquors for $5.99. Not bad, but very bitter as others have said.

    I happen to like it a lot. Bitter is a good thing to me. To each his own, but i would never say this is a bad beer.
