I tried this once during my "discovering IPA's" phase and overlooked it.

I just came back to it. My, what a beautiful, well-rounded smooth beer it is.

You can't go wrong with it. The perfect gateway into craft beer.
Maltiness, depth, flavor, smoothness, but still just enough hop bitterness.

It's the most recognizable craft beer at the supermarket and rightly so.
Cheers

Refreshing tang; and just enough alchohol for a mild attitude enhancement without the knock-down of more alcoholic beers. My go-to brew, I allow myself one or two per evening.
