First timer with this brewery (managed to pick up a sixer in another state) and it's a winner. Not a super west coast style IPA but it has a nice flavor and that's all that matters. Recommended

Holy Crap! I'm not digging this beer at all. I've had some good Imperial Red Ales in the past but this one doesn't make the list. I actually had to dump it after a few sips. Not recommended
