i found this one to be a little dull. i mean, there are not mistakes, off flavors, and other negatives really, it just blends in far too easily with the crowd of west coast ipa. maybe a little more malt balance than i personally am after, maybe not, maybe the hops are just underdone a little bit, maybe the beer isnt all that fresh, there could be multiple factors at work. a touch of medium crystal malt in here adds some caramel color and a bit of body as well. not all of the sweetness is fermented down, so the beer feels unnecessarily rich for the style. hops are just sort of meh, balancing bitterness and maybe a little resinous citrus, but its so mild compared to its peers, it almost doesnt even feel like an ipa to me. the beer tastes good though, it just doesnt match what i look for in west coast ipa. the other beers from these guys are much more compelling.

I'm feelin' quite well on this one, my peeps. Not overly juicy like Gallagher smashing a watermelon, and not overly bitter like your girl watching Twilight. It's fresh, clean, has a nice balance of citrus and bitter... It's not perfect like Emily Ratajkowski in a 2 piece, but more so like her after kicking a football around the pitch: you know you still would.

Peace!

Meh....., this is barely an IPA, to say the least. Hop presence is minimal. There are far better. All you need to do is read the other reviews. They say it all.
