Bread & Butter of IPAs. At 8.6% ALC/Vol, this certainly gets the job done. Standard hoppiness you'd expect from an IPA. Being an Imperial IPA it does taste like penny soup, with a copper slider. But it's damn good. In my area, it's a very affordable beer, comparibly. So, on MyFriday nights this is always a valued part of the arsenal.
I don't eat when I drink this one.
