On tap at Charlestown Brew Fest. Nothing really stood out wowing me about this beer. IPA "checklist" was certainly there. I just couldn’t get past the name, its gimmicky and already been done by Goose Island. I know that shouldn’t be part of my rating, but sadly, it took away from my experience drinking it....
