I bought a bottle of this while visiting San Diego. Brought it back to Florida to share with friends. It's an above average American IPA. I'd prefer a little more body than this beer has.
Its aroma is good, but my overall impression was "off" a little.
I guess I was hoping for more substance instead of simple bitterness and hop aroma. Check out my review of Rogue's Hop Heaven Ale for an example of what I'm looking for.
But now I look at this review and I feel that I'm being overly harsh. Make no mistake, this is a pretty good beer. There are better examples of the style out there, however.
