Hard to believe this is 6.3% ABV. Extremely smooth, very drinkable. Unlike other IPA's that are similar ABV I don't feel the need for a glass of water after every glass of beer.

Had this in cans while on vaca in the smokey mountains...took a sixer with me fly fishing and this beer was such a treat to have, I felt guilty that I actually found a great beer while on vacation. Usually settling for some macro crap. Thanks for the great day guys. Word, Atlanta! whodathunk.
