Just doesn't hold up against the competition. I expected more from it.

From the bottle, a fairly deep amber color, almost copper, with a nice one inch head. It has a strong fresh hop aroma that suggests quite a bit of dry hoping. I found the taste more piney than citrus with little malt flavor. It has a lingering bitter mouthfeel. A good solid IPA.

Definitely a good IPA, not sure if I'd classify as outstanding or world class

Poured from bottle. Very good IPA, worth a 6 pack, almost sessionable. 99 Bros rating surprised me, but it is well balanced. Not too hoppy, a bite of malt, and not too sweet.

Delicious overall! The only reasons I didn't rate even higher are the fairly strong citrus/grapefruit flavors and a bit of a weak hop nose. But these are simply nits on an otherwise awesome ipa!
