The first thing I noticed about this ale when I poured it into the glass was the aroma. It has a pleasant, hoppy fragrance that took me by surprise. Not as dark as the famous India Pale Ale but a smoother finish. 5.9% ABV but I felt unsatified after a 12 oz bottle, definitely get the 22 oz bottle! I miss that after taste you get with the IPA. Nothing really to celebrate here.
