Here's a review that's long overdue...I first had it a little over a year ago and have had this many times since.

Pours a dark copper orange, an off-white head tops it off, eventually becoming a slight cap+ring. Pretty good lace.

Scent is good. Earthy and piny hops noticeable with some light grapefruit and citrus there too. Not much for malt except some faint toastiness.

Taste is an improvement. Piny/resiny and grapefruit hops are most prevalent with some earthiness and citrus there too. Decent amount of caramel and bready malts back it up. Pretty classic IPA taste that's very well done.

Carbonation is on the low side for an IPA, very smooth, full-bodied. Good balance.

This is definitely a go-to classic IPA for me. It's an excellent deal for the quality and it's consistently great.
