Don't get the buzz with this beer. Too pricey to boot.

Not sure where the hype around this one comes from. It's good. It's a very good IPA, but it's not some standout to my taste.

This beer was really crisp. It's also very fresh tasting. I'm a hop head and I thoroughly enjoyed this beer. Its a little pricey but it's well worth the experience.

one of my favorites, though I think the price point is a little high. Would go with Hop Nosh if I have the option.

Only ever had it in Draft but It's a great IPA and available in a lot of bars which is always nice.
