My last day in Ohio, I decided to take myself out to a late lunch and explore the city for a few hours. They had a giant food market that reminded me of Reading Terminal Market, which was cool to walk around. After walking for an hour, I was starving and ended up at a place that was famous for their fried chicken. This was the beer that I got while I was waiting for it.

ABV: 6.5%

Style: American IPA

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “An American hop assault for all the ambivalent warriors who get the girl in the end. ‘Look, I ain’t in this for your revolution, and I’m not in it for you, Princess.’ This iconic ale features a blend of four hop varieties which creates a crisp bitterness and imparts massive floral and citrus aromas.”

Random: The can art for this beer is quite cool. It makes it jump off of the shelves.

The beer poured with a one finger, off white head. It dissipated slowly and left some lacing on the glass. The body was a clear, light orange with high carbonation. On the nose, I picked up a lot of tropical notes, specifically mango, grass and pineapple. There was also some pilsner malt. The taste was super smooth with tropical hops and pilsner malt. Then, it went into fresh-cut grass. The alcohol didn’t make an appearance. The body was light with a lot of carbonation, which made this really drinkable. It had a quick, but bright finish with mango and pineapple. This beer was just outstanding and as soon as I left Ohio, I found this beer in cans in New York, so I won’t have to go without it. If you see it on shelves, make sure you get some as soon as possible.
