Nice well balanced (for a west coast) IPA. Hop bitterness is present it is easy to identify as an IPA, but the balance is there as well. I also appreciate the malt being there without it being to sweet. I like this beer because the balance between sweet and bitter is good as is the balance of hops and malt. Mouthfeel is good too, honestly I really like this beer - nothing fancy but very drinkable, maybe a session IPA?
