Have been wanting to try this beer forever, finally got a chance to try this one at a new, local bar in Baltimore as part of their 2 for $6 happy hour.. can't beat that.

Overall, one of the best IPA's I've had, if not one of the best beers I've ever tried. A hop heavy IPA for sure, but also one of the most well balanced with a great malt backbone, making for a great mouthfeel, body, and texture. Extremely tasty and drinkable, this is a fantastic beer.

Poured from a 22-oz. bomber into a pint glass. About two fingers of head. Color was honey pale, fairly clear. Fluffy caramel lacing on the top. Wet, frothy, spongy film on the sides.

Potent citrus hop notes on the initial smell. Also got grapefruit hops, lemon hops, sweet sugary notes and floral notes. Really liked the smell.

Taste wasn’t as good as the smell, but decent nonetheless. Reminded me a bit of a citrus pale ale. Got the grapefruit hops and the sweet sugary floral taste. Also some pine. Some bitterness on the tongue after.

Medium body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Bitter finish.

Pretty good beer overall. The smell definitely was the best part. I’d give it another try for sure.
