Heard tons of good things about this beer, so when I finally saw it, I had to get it. Looks like your standard IPA, clear and golden, I was actually expecting sediment, due to reviews and what it says on the box, but its clear as day. Smell is a bit lacking, hops are there but not what Id call the "finest kind". Mouthfeel is great, just what I look for and expect in a beer. Taste... hmm I have to taste it over and over again. Something is lacking here. It is crazy bitter, like the white part of a grapefruit. I think they must have done all their hopping at the beginning of the boil, its like they forgot the other additions. Its solid, and I like it. Will I buy it again? probably not.
