I grabbed this in Florida because a) it was made by Belhaven, and I liked the other one I had and 2) it’s an IPA.
The bottle was clear, so I knew it was a dark IPA colour going in. When I opened it, it smelled like some sort of medicine, not a good start. There was no head on the pour, which concerns me sometimes, and it smelled like meds even more now!
The first taste was, yup, like medicine. This is going to be a long drink! Luckily, I had lots of time to drink it, so it sat there, getting warm. And you know what? It got better as it did, which is odd for an IPA. It got creamier and the hops became hoppier.
All things considered, it was not bad.
