I'd be interested to eventually see tasting notes on this one. Looks like a straight-up bitter bomb - I don't know that you get much else from Warrior & Galena, and with only 1 oz of Mt. Hood I think any hop flavor presence will be muted for an IPA.

 

A local farm brewery here in VA makes what they call an estate ale - Gentleman Farmer from Lickinghole Creek Craft Brewery. The first time I tasted it I wasn't sure what it was supposed to be - very bitter and not much else going on. I eventually came to appreciate it very much.
