We thought it was delicious. Enjoyed it with some small bites of a nice sharp cheddar. Outstanding finish, not sweet. The citrus and pine notes were not overdone; and at 6.75 ABV, although too high to be a session beer, it was still considerably more quaffable over the long haul than some popular 8s. Quite good.

Great aroma, the Amarillos hops really come through. Not overly bitter, but it definitely lingers, not in a bad way. Great hop flavor, bright tropical notes with a Golden color, lots of carbonation that left a nice lacing pattern. Overall a very good IPA and at a great price. Would definitely drink another if I have the chance.

Pours a light golden amber with a nice frothy head. Very hoppy nose as expected, equally heavy citrus and piney hops. Pretty bitter on the palate, the piney/resin hops seem more forward here than on the nose. Pretty solid body, the bitterness lingers, owning up to its 75 IBUs. Pretty solid IPA for not being over the top ABV.
