Lets keep this one simple.

This is a kick ass classic west coast IPA.

Super piney with some fruit on the nose. Pours clear, clean and very consistent.
Goes great with chiles and other spicy foods.

Always ultra fresh with convenient canned on date on the bottom. Usually when I get these they are only a week or two old. Cant beat that!

Swamis, I love you... at $13 for 6 pints my wallet also loves you.

One of my favorite daily drivers, get some.

Heavy on the hop flavor with lots of tropical fruit and some citrus. Reasonable on the bitterness and mild on the malts. A fine west coast IPA.

Picked up a sixer while here in San Diego for work. Very nice citrus aroma. Pineapple, grapefruit, orange peel. Sticky resin and pine needles for a refreshing taste on a hot Cali day. Good score. Cheers!
