This is a very nice IPA! Not too bitter, has notes of citrus and is an affordable brand. I love the different flavors this brand comes out with and the packaging of this one is very interestinf

I thought it tasted good but noticed it is a strong beer. After only a few beers I would say I felt a little buzzed so would definitely once yourself and snack! The bottle I thought was really cool and attractive to the eye which is what made me buy it

I didn’t like it cause is an IPA, which means that the taste is stronger and more bitter than the regular beers. I bought it at the bodega near to my apartment. But if you are an IPA fan, you can try it cause one of my friends loves it.

Great IPA, one of my favorites. This beer has a nice hoppy taste. Compared to other brands at the same price point this IPA is a total winner. It has to be iced cold. I keep a glass in the freezer to have with it.

I would not go out of my way to drink this beer. If I see it somewhere or have it on hand then I will have it. Medicore flavor, an average IPA.
