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.
