Damn, this is one fine beer. I've had it several times, but tonight's bottle was super fresh and really hit the spot. Love the low ABV on this one - consumed in about 30minutes as I'm snacking on some pretzels and preparing for a meeting in the morning.
Orangey-brown pour, a handful of floaties from the bottom, and a nice light tan head. Not into my normal glasses, since they're dirty, but instead into an old school A-B weiss like glass. So sue me, it's better than plastic. The aroma doesn't bowl me over, but it's pretty damn good. Citrus, grapefruit, tropical fruits and a hint of light malts. Actually, it's really good, but not quite awesome. Taste is awesome. Bitter, but not too...citrusy, but not too...tropical, yes...and a nice hint of malt at the end. Yum. And pine! Subtle, but there as well. Mouthfeel - it coats nicely, medium body, just how I like it. Wishing I had another for drinkability's sake...
This beer rocks - a bit under-rated I'd think. I've been looking for a good go-to IPA and have been fond of many, but this really fits what I'm looking for right now.
Give this one a shot - you won't be disappointed.

I know it's not kosher to rate a beer a perfect 5, but I have no other choice! This, to me, is the perfect beer! It has a great citrus/piney beginning with a perfectly malty backbone that slides down the back of your tongue until your stomach is in a euphoric state! This IPA is the ultimate IPA and if you haven't tried it, you are truly missing out! I don't know if there is a brewery with a more well rounded selection of beers!
