Good enough IPA...definitely NOT a "hop storm" as the name implies, but maybe compared to their other offerings it is... I said I would try it, but immediately went back to ordering the back row of 3rd party IPAs at the bar... Other Cali IPAs are much better (Lagunitas, Bear Republic, Schubros, Stone, etc).

I really enjoyed this beer. I'm a hop whore. I love super butter IPAs that are strong and I love thick mouth feeling DIPAs. I really not a fan of most session IPAs. I also do not like drinking beer as I eat. This IPA, however, was very light, but balanced, complex and with a sweet after taste. It was excellent to drink with my meal (salmon and rice). If I wasn't loaded up with some great beers at home id of purchased a growler. I was really impressed with this beer and would get it again, especially with a meal.

I had this beer at BJ's in Tucson AZ. It's a pretty good beer witha higher ABV. The smell is pretty lite on the nose with hints if citrus.

Color is mild gold/amber with very little head. Hints of citrus, hints of a great beer but just average in my opinion.

The taste grows on you after a couple. Might be there best IPA in house.
