Best IPA hands down only wish it came in a 6 pack here in Jacksonville, FL as the large bottle is a bit expensive locally at $9 a bottle.

Great IPA. Picked up a 6 pack and enjoyed each one over two or three nights. Top shelf IPA, a bit pricey at almost $17 for a 6 pack but maybe that's just because it was bought in Maryland. Still good stuff.

This is the best IPA I've ever consumed. In fact, it turned me into an IPA man! I crave the hops finish at times which has never seemed like a possibility before.
