Pours a golden orange with a nice white head. Has a nice earthy and citrus aroma with a touch of sweet malt. Nice bitter beer obviously loaded with hops. Nicely done.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap in C-bad. A caramel malt forward, grassy earth, bitter bad ass of a beer. Long finish and medium bodied. An all-around great IPA - but I did regret not getting Poor Man’s instead. That stuff is ridiculous...

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On-tap today at PP C’Bad. Wow oh wow, I haven’t had an IPA this straight up bitter in a long time, if ever. Pours a thin looking golden orange color with a crisp white head, some lace. Smells dark hoppy and grassy bitter. Tastes super earthy hoppy. Syrupy, caramelly hop bitter sweet. Somewhat toasty hops actually. Medium body, smooth/watery, active carbonation. Bitter bitter bitter, ughhhh.
