After about 500 of these I figured it was time for a review.

The pour is a rich orange with a finger in a half of head. The hops hit you right up front along with a mish mash of tropical flavors.

The first sip just doesn't want to go down because of the amazing experience on the tongue.

It's hard not to call this my favorite IPA but I literally buy the entire lot everytime it's around. Even then do I have no trouble drinking them while there still fresh.
