258. Cricket Hill Hopnotic IPA
Nothing good to say about this beer as it was only the second beer in the 258 I have reviewed that I did not finish. I love IPAs but this one was off in almost every way.
Appearance is the only part of this beer that is a positive and even that did not last long as the head dissipated very quickly and left almost no lacing on the glass. Aroma was terrible with lots of wheat and no hops. I have not had a Miller Lite in at least 10 years but this is what I remember it tasting like. Flavorless and bitter in a bad way. I gave this one a chance letting it warm slightly and the taste was still horrible so it went down the drain.
