Very well balanced, enough hops to be challenging, but smoothed out by a very subtle malt. For my money my palate, I think this is superior to their IPA which won the Gold at GABF this fall.

i love how fresh this beer is, how the hops seem to be bursting out of suspension like a pod of dolphins breaching off the coast. its so vibrant and alive, and i love that about it. what i dont love is the hop profile itself. i mean, its so fresh and new and clean and good, but its such a familiar played out profile i feel like. northwestern hops of the old guard here, i know it, maybe not this green, but i have tasted the base beer here a million times already. i always appreciate when someone reinvents the wheel to make it rounder you know? its already been done, but lets do it again, lets do it really really well, but its still the same wheel. this might be one of the finest wheels yet produced in terms of balance, freshness, mouthfeel, finish, and abv (right where i like my ipa!), but its still a wheel to me. breakside continues to impress me though, they have a huge lineup, and all of them are very good.
