One of the best IPAs being brewed. Fresh, this beer is one of the best beers available. If you've never had it, at least try a single of it. Yes it's pricey but its worth More than every penny. Truly a world class India Pale Ale. Although since it's brewed in San Diego, freshness of this beer is paramount, especially considering I'm writing this from New England.
