This, in my opinion, is one of the benchmark IPAs (Pliny, Bells Two-Hearted, Stone, Odell Myrcenary).
Very close to Pliny in terms of smell, taste and appearance.

Can't go wrong here- only wish I could get this in CO! When I travel to CA, I always buy out Bev Mo. however, still blows me away that they store it on the shelf...

An excellent IPA. Although this is not my favorite style, I have to give credit where credit is due. Comparable in quality to Two-Hearted. The initial taste is very good, while the hops tend to take over too much as you drink it (from my perspective). It's very balanced, smooth, and an easy drinker, so it is well done regardless. If you like IPA's, I like others definitely recommend it. Glad I tried it. I may do so again some day.
