7/8/2010: Wow this stuff has a TON of gunk floating around in this beer. Can you tell from the picture? Does anyone know if this is normal for this IPA? I have seen a little bit of this type of thing in IPAs before, but not THIS much.

The smell is very very crisp, hoppy and grainy. The taste is pretty nice. citrus hops, grapefruit hops, and a little bit grassy. This IPA actually gets a little bit tastier as it warms, which I find to be atypical for the style. Interesting. A little bit under carbonated, and medium body. Pretty solid beer but would not go out of my way to drink it.

Picture of the day: The recession affects all of us.
