I had this at a friend's house, so I can't vouch for the supply chain on this one.
It has a lighter flavor, if you do a little research, you'll see that the IBU is half that of Torpedo and about 50% lower than Sierra Nevada Pale Ale.
If it is a really hot summer afternoon, a lighter IPA is usually a good bet, so if you are interested in picking this up, do it during one of the hot summer months versus the colder months when something a little more substantial is required.
It's pretty good on the alcohol content, coming in at 5.7%, putting it above your typical lager. It's a good alternative to your typical american beer, but if you are looking for a stronger (flavor) pale ale or thinking about an IPA, you may be disappointed.
