Beautiful IPA. Lovely balance. So glad it's back in CT. Lots of citrus, lots of hops. Little more west coast style all in all, but really just wonderful. Super fresh too! Nose is a little lighter than some big DIPAs, but it's still more than enough to get your mouth watering. And the actual flavors follow suit perfectly.
