This is the perfect beer for those who have graduated to an ipa with a bit more of a full hop and abc. Beautiful amber color, floral hoppy aroma, a mild front taste, but a very full citrusy spicy hoppy backside. It lingers to inform you as to when the best time to take the next sip is. West Coast, it is unmatched. But, journeying to the far reaches of the piney woods marsh, Dogfish Head, I must admit, does even better. For the price, for the abc, for the ipa essence, this is the best beer you can buy at the convenience or grocery store.

Pours clear, very orange. A little on the foamier side. Hoppy aroma with a prudent but not overwhelming citrus blend. Initial taste is mildly acidic, quickly becomes smoother and the malt opens up on your palette, blending with the citrus. Has an average thickness for an IPA and leaves a pleasantly hoppy aftertaste. A good blend of traditional English IPA while having enough of a unique taste to set it apart from the others and avoid being boring. Did not expect this much quality from this beer, I've been missing out.
