Bottle given to me by friend, no glass to pour in or time to actually give a solid review, will probably pick some up and re-review it later as this is off memory.
Aroma: VERY piney hoppy with some citrus and grapefruit notes
Taste: west coast ipa for sure, tastes very hop forward and piney, lots of weed taste, and the aftertaste is decidedly bitter, VERY grapefruit like towards the end. wow, this was my first one and will def buy again, wild ride of an IPA. On the bitter end, but it is well enough balanced that even for someone like me who doesn't always prefer really hoppy bitter IPAs, it goes down smooth.
Overall, a pretty damn good IPA, i will def be buying again, possibly on a semi regular basis as my local Krogers stocks them. One of my top 5 IPAs, but still no two-hearted...

Bought this 22oz bomber (no freshness dating) from Total Wine for a little over $5. That's a pretty good price for such a quality ale. Poured into a wide-mouth Ball jar.
A: Beautiful copper coloring with excellent, billowy head.
S: I get a lot of malt--ala a DIPA. Smells really fresh.
T: Not your typical IPA; malt up front, with nice, hoppy background. I wonder if it would be reversed if fresh. This is a really mellow IPA. That's dangerous...you could drink a lot!
Drinkability: I was hoping this would be my new, "go-to-IPA", but unfortunately I couldn't get that wallop of grapefruit and other citrus notes I crave. No worries, it's still a GREAT example of the style. I will drink this again. THANKS LAGUNITAS!
