This is one of the best readily-available IPAs I've ever had.

The fact that you can wander into an average NYC deli and walk out with this beer is astounding to me. I got one of those awesome "bomber" bottles, they're just so darn good to look at.

Very hoppy, almost aggressively so, with a nice bite. Aggressive in a good way.

Fruity, citrusy, refreshing.

Sierra Nevada in my opinion walks a fine line, and to be as popular and widespread as they are, I think this beer is a reminder that they can make some pretty amazing stuff on that large of a scale. I really like this beer and if I'm going somewhere (party/bbq/etc.) and need to grab something to take with me, it's great to know that I can get this in almost any deli or supermarket in my neighborhood.
