Amazing. A truly great IPA that doesn't mess around. Appearance is a dark yellow/orange with a thin head that trails the glass. The smell is an explosion of hops. The taste is the same with a ton of amazing hop flavor, really fresh and crisp with pine and grapefruit notes coming through. Would highly recommend for any hop heads to grab a bottle.
