The first time I had this I defintely didn't see the hype, but this has grown on me. The aroma shows pungent grapefruit and mild malt sweetness. The taste consists of pungent/dank grapefruit at first followed by sweeter tropical hops and semi dry finish. Definitely one of the best widely available ipas out there, but the six pack price will limit the amount of times I purchase this.
