It's a fine brew, maybe I'm just burned out on the never ending list of IPA's. Plenty hoppy.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- An over the top hops and citrus aroma.
Appearance- The beer is a murky golden yellow with a small white head. Looks good.
Taste- Very hoppy, I noticed the high scores and I guess I am not a follower. The flavor was OK
Palate- A light to medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation. The hops made this a very dry beer.
Overall- I thought this was OK, not great or even real good. I much prefer Arrogant Bastard over this.
