I remember that when I first had this, probably 6 or 8 years ago, I thought it was absolutely great. Today I had two in a row. OK, its good, but it wasn't all that drinkable. Nice flavors up front, but a little bitter-harsh on the finish. Very similar to a hundred other IPAs. I think many of those newer IPAs probably copied this. Maybe I'm just burned out on all the IPA nonsense.

What a IPA should be. Full of flavor, crisp and strong. I really enjoyed this one.

A little over-hyped in my estimation, but still a very good IPA. Not bold or exciting, but very nice.

Smell: Intensely floral and honey like. Just simply lovely and made me want to smell it more.

Taste: Notes of fruits and flower. Malty. Intense hoppy bitterness at the end, which left a lot of hoppy aftertaste in my mouth.

Overall: I don't like bitterness, so I won't be drinking this often. However, that doesn't mean that it is not a good one; it is up there with the top, and I am sure I will return to it.
