I cannot write anything better about this beer than any other entry you may find about it. It is a perfectly balanced IPA. Bitter, citrusy, slight malt sweetness, crisp...DELICIOUS. Stop worrying about rankings and start trusting your taste buds. This beer is world class.

4.91/5 rDev +11.3%
Pour: A clear bronze with about a fingers worth of head with good retention and nice lacing.
Aroma: Biscuity malt backbone, with a ton of hops up front. Resinous, cut grass, and some grapefruit. Hints of alcohol.
Taste: Similar to the aroma with a strong biscuity malt backbone followed by powerful hops. Sticky and resiny at the front, bitter at the back, but pleasantly so. Decent carbonation levels, and a lighter mouthfeel than expected, though not watery. Delicious and refreshing.
Overall: This beer lives up to the hype, in my opinion. Well balanced, but still hoppy and bitter. A nice combination of hop flavors here that compliment the malt backbone. An excellent beer. I’m glad I finally grabbed some.
