Got lucky enough to find this beer at Total Wine and purchased a six pack. Hopefully more to come.

Poured into double mountain pint glass.
A: Some nice lacing and a white head that dissipates
Quickly
S: citrusy hop aroma, grapefruit and floral undertones.
T: slight sweetness but a nice hop bitter finish with citrus, hints of grapefruit. Bitterness is not overwhelming though which is nice. Very clean.
A: crisp carbonation and only a slight lingering finish.

Well balanced overall. Ive had and enjoyed much more hoppy IPAs but this seems to be one of the better balanced. Very nice
