4.21/5 rDev +5%
I can't say that I really appreciated IPAs until I had this beer. I hate tons of pine and bitters. This beer to me was very drinkable. I LOVED the grapefruit taste and while it did have some bitter bite, it was not nearly as bad as some IPAs that I've had. The IBU rating is about a 82. That is high but to me the grapefruit flavor is so powerful it negates the feeling of massive bitterness. This beer is very hoppy for sure but the malts help to balance things.
BUY THE CANS! Don't buy this in bottles. The cans will prevent skunking and will stay fresher for longer.
While this was the first IPA that I liked. Lagunitas Little Sumpin' Sumpin' was like this beer but a tad bit toned down. A lot less bitters (64 IBU rating). Check that beer out too!

3.75/5 rDev -6.5%
Appearance: Pours an extremely hazy copper-bronze with a 1" frothy head. Giant chunks of sediment. Spotty retention, with outstanding rings/lacing.
Aroma: Extreme hoppiness. Juicy, resiny, pine, pineapple. Hoppy, but not the most complex nose ever.
Taste: Bittersweet arrival, clean, malty, sweetness across mid-palate, then POW! Big, bitter finish. The finish is really where this one shines.
Mouthfeel: Heavy, leaning toward midweight; moderate slickness; a touch heavy for the American IPA style?
Overall: A solid American IPA. Comparable to Sierra Nevada Torpedo, but slightly more bitter. Good malt backbone, but a little ,more hop forward, and a bit heavy. I think I can get better locally.
