Well, if you like IPAs this might be good. Unfortunately, the waitress didn’t know it was an IPA. Even for the fact that I don’t like IPA, I wasn’t that impressed.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A solid piney, citrus imperial ipa that sits on the hoppy side of balanced. Golden yellow and very aromatic. Some malt and booze sweetness. Very tasty and all about the hops.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Color: slightly cloudy copper color. Almost no head.
Aroma: very piney with a touch of citrus.
Taste: a fairly I pronounced acidic and/or carbonation mouth feel. The pine is also quite prominent and stays on the long finish. The alcohol lends it some welcome sweetness.
A quite good beer, though definitely a hop bomb. If you prefer some balance, this may not be your cup of tea...
