Exile on Main Street, or any street--this puppy will make you sing.

Just the Facts

Drinking temp: 38 degrees.

Nose: sweet, but here come the hops.

Taste: Ever see that animal at the zoo? The Hoppy-potumus. Yep--that's the one.

5 out of 6 bottles

The Exile Brewing Company in Des Moines brings the hop with this IPA, and combines it with a tiny bit of sweet to take away the bite.  Great attribute if you are an IPA novice like me.  If you have been around the block, you will want more Hop attack.  But this was a winner.
