Yeah, we’ve got your number.  You’re that guy (or gal).  You’re a discerning beer lover.  You love IPAs.  You love the rich maltiness, the subtle toasty caramel, and you want big hop flavor and aroma (and you mean BIG!), but on the other hand, you’re suffering from IBU overload, also known as bitterness fatigue.  Yeah, you love the occasional Imperial IPA, but come on—having your brain fried with high alcohol and your tongue steamrolled with off-the-scale bitterness makes for a pretty short beer drinking session.  And that’s what you’re after—a hop-flavor loaded session IPA that you can toss a bunch back without waking up with your tongue in the infirmary.  Well Yippie-Yi-Yay, because your solution is here!  With a “mild” 6.3% alcohol and 41 IBUs, this easy chugging IPA has just the perfect amount of bitterness to keep things interesting, but it will flood your senses with a deluge of hop flavor and aroma!  In your face, man!  What could be better?  So jump up and celebrate, for the only thing keeping you from chanting “Yippie-Yi-Yay!” will be your recognition of an empty pint!
