Decided to pick this up on a whim. First taste was interesting but not necessarily IPA like. Went to their site to find out that this is their interpretation of a 'German IPA' with sterling and magnum hops along with German pils, Vienna, and Munich malts. Pretty funny that the primary hop is American. Definitely getting citrus and lemon from the sterling. It is 7.5% abv but only 45 IBU so the bitterness is definitely understated. I am getting some decent hop flavor but very little aroma whatsoever. It's actually quite tasty for what it is but definitely not what I was expecting.
