I have had this beer a few times, but recently I had it on tap for the first time. This was the best I have found yet, but I am still not a huge fan of this beer. I think an average IPA (which is fine) is about right. But the aroma is what sticks out the most as this thing smells fantastic, with citrus and piney hops coming through. The taste comes through as mostly base malt, and not much else to round it out. Comes out pretty dry to me and as drinkable as it is, I just don't seek this one out often.

Poured from a 12oz. can into a Sam Adams pint glass
Flows into the glass a beautiful crystal-clear gold with lots of carbonation. A stiff pour yields a massive head, very foamy with big bubbles. It condenses fairly fast and leaves a a lot of lacing.
The aroma is quite nice. I get citrus, pine, a bit of rising bread, orange peel, grass and a hint of onion.
This beer tastes great. Layers of hop flavors. Juicy citrus up front, some pine and a nice lingering and spicy bitterness. As it warms, a little bit of grassiness and even a hint of onion. There's also some malty sweetness hiding in the background.
The mouthfeel is light to medium with a bit of stickiness.
overall, a really good IPA that I wish I could obtain on a regular basis.
