Thanks to my Sister's BF for sharing a bottle of this with me.

Overall I thought this was a pretty good IPA. Beautiful hops on the nose that worked well in the mouth with an interesting, almost sticky maltiness adding backbone to it. There were some gaps in the flavor but I found it easy to drink and easy to enjoy. Would be curious to try more from Great Basin.
