Rough day at work? Crack open a Five O’clock Shadow and be at one with your stubble. This American IPA is the real Desperate Dan of the beer world, hoppy uncompromising and goes well with a cow pie. Embrace your inner cowboy. Yee Ha!

UPDATED: NOV 26, 2015 Hazy golden with a white head. Sweet citrus aroma with some strange smoky notes. The taste is rather dry, very little malts, the resiny zesty bitterness takes over right from the beginning. Simple.

Nice full bodied with lots of malt back bone, which is very clean. Decent fruitiness. Straight forward, slightly sweet but enjoyable IPA

UPDATED: SEP 21, 2015 Od razu czuć, kto robił to piwo. Porządnie nachmielone, pięknie rozchodzi się po kubkach smakowych. Chce się więcej. Kolejny kufel. Nie zmieniam zdania.

Brew_Cat (117) - Athens, GREECE - JUN 13, 2015
I’ve recently had a couple of bottles at Pulp Pub, Athens. Average creamy white head, good lacing, clear medium body, dark amber color. Interesting aromas, average malt presence (grain, hay, straw). Average hop presence (mainly floral, pine, citrus, grapefruit and lemon peel). Some hints of apple taste and aroma, thin texture, lively carbonation, bitter finish, citrusy aftertaste. Excellent choice!

7.3%ABV. American IPA. Poured out into a creamy tan head. Color is an inviting 16ºSRM with a deep golden honey. The way it poured out immediately reminded me of my favorite IPA, Buxton’s Axe Edge. The Piney citrus nose. Aggressively hopped. Aroma hops are nice and floral. Light and come out at the tail end of the palate. The full frontal hop assault is all herbaceous, lime peel, pine needles, wet yew bark, hyssop. Likely closest thing to Buxton Axe Edge, my favorite IPA in the world.

JorisPPattyn (9134) - Ursel, BELGIUM - MAY 22, 2015
Towering, dense off-white head, slowly receding with lacerings over clear amber beer. Bit milky, sweet tubers; bit soupy nose. Not much in the way of hops... Again soupy, spicy. It’s bitter, but not hoppy in my book. Some background sweet malts. Metallic-bitter finish; acquiring a bitter almond flavour. Astringent, medium bodied, slick. Pfui..
