This beer is perfection and easy enough to drink pretty often. Complex with floral notes and well hopped.

Wow. I understand why this beer is rated so highly now that I have finally tried one. Unlike many IPAs which are very citrus and flowery, this contained notes of darker fruits. Well balanced and clean, this is an expertly crafted brew. What a nice change from the average IPA! Definitely will buy again.
