I know this a very highly rated IPA, but I am not a fan. I have tried this beer on tap and out of a bottle. It pours a beautiful golden color with a rich creamy head , but I find the aftertaste a bit harsh.

One of my favorite IPAs. Tasted from bottle and growler pour, and absolutely delicious either way. A must for any true IPA drinker.
