Tactical Ops Brewing, Inc. Shrapnel IPA
Bottled. No Date. ABV 8% IBUs 85

Finish: Smooth, Toasted Hazelnut
Experience: This is my first beer from Tactical Ops (another local Fresno brewery). I was super stoked on the aroma of beer (I get excited when I smell the dank on the nose) but was a little deceiving. It was hoppier than malty (which I was happy about of course) but the malt backbone was present which took a little away from my palate but overall not bad. I did appreciate the hops that came through the finish with a dry mouth. I will take this as a success for my first time trying this brewery. Grade 4.2/5.
