Just okay. Not a bad IPA, not a great one either. I generally really like IPAs so I am going to always score them a little higher. This one was just missing some of the nice piney, citrusy bite that I really like in a good IPA. Since I am not partial to this brewery, I don't think I will have this one again anytime soon.

22oz bomber poured into a weizen glass.

A - Gorgeous pale golden coloration topped with a pillowy layer of froth. Retention was nice and layered.

S - Big grapefruit nose, very citrusy and very hoppy. If anything else is present, it is definitely overshadowed.

T - Hop bomb with big citrus notes. Not particularly balanced, but I'm not sure it was intended to be. Loads of grapefruit.

M - Light bodied with a mellow carbonation level. Slightly oily feel to it, and the finish was moderately dry.

D - Very tasty and highly drinkable. Will revisit this gem of an IPA without a doubt. I'd mark this one as a must try.
