This is just a damn fine IPA. Hop driven through and through... some may say unbalanced, but they'd be making a poor reference to old school "east coast" IPAs. This is a modern IPA--west coast nod if you must, but modern is more appropriate--and a really good example of one. Nice blend of citrus/pine/very slightly dank aromas and with a resinous finish from late addition hops, and assertive bitterness from hops in the boil. There are malts there, but they are clean and subtle--and limited enough to keep the ABV nicely moderate (not a session beer by any stretch, but even my pansy ass can put a few down and feel perfectly fine in the AM). Couple this with yeast that does not get in the way and clean water, and you've got a great IPA on your hands.

Deep orange with amber hue had thick off white head that laces great down the glass. Smell is citrus forward. Grapefruit, orange peel, light floral, mango and un ripe berry. Taste brings big grapefruit favors, light mango, little berry, biscuit backbone through the middle, un ripe melon, floral and bitter on the finish. Mouthfeel has perfect carbonation, light end of medium mouthfeel and duper dry puckering finish. This IPA is unbalanced in all the right ways and I love it !
