Maybe I got a bad batch from the two roads location... Was super excited when I read about this beer and saw the 100 ba rating. Unfortunate that I don't see it, but the flavor profile was not for me. Did not get a glimpse of floral or citrus AT ALL. For me it's a bitter hoppy booze ridden ipa, that is very mildly carbonated. I can feel the boozy heat in my stomach. It's not that I dislike this beer at all but I don't think it lived up to my expectations of dipa due to the amount of wonderful ones I have had lately.

Super juicy with tropical fruit all over the place. Incredibly easy drinking this is an example of a perfect beer. Lawson is on top of his game right now!

I had tried Sip of Sunshine three months ago. Was unimpressed, but to be fair I gave it a second shot this past weekend.

I decided that while it is definitely a quality made beer, the taste is just not for me.

I taste a very dank hop presence, not citrus/fruity as all as advertised.

My prefererance for IPAS has always been for the sweet taste with citrus/floral/graprefuit hop profile. This is very bitter /resiny on the palate.

I wanted to love this beer. I could not. Can name 8-10 beers from my home state of CT that blow this out of the water.
