Best IPA hands down only wish it came in a 6 pack here in Jacksonville, FL as the large bottle is a bit expensive locally at $9 a bottle.

This is the best IPA I've ever consumed. In fact, it turned me into an IPA man! I crave the hops finish at times which has never seemed like a possibility before.

Great IPA. Picked up a 6 pack and enjoyed each one over two or three nights. Top shelf IPA, a bit pricey at almost $17 for a 6 pack but maybe that's just because it was bought in Maryland. Still good stuff.
