A good IPA, it gets you to suck in your cheeks. I believe that is the goal of a good IPA.

Finishes bitter, almost rye.

Carmel, citrus, grapefruit nose.

Nice, fresh, hops and some sweetness at the crack of the bottle.

Nice hint of caramel sweetness that is blanketed by the danky, resinous bittering hops. Just past the bittering hops is some nice orange, floral, and grapefruit/citrus hoppiness. The beer is nice and balanced. The malt profile gives off just enough sweetness to offset the hops. Bready malts clean up very nicely, leaving the bitterness of the hops to linger behind on the palate. Minor grainy finish after the bitterness dissipates, which I welcome. This is a pretty damn good brew. It's solid. My buddy picked this up on a whim and brought it over. Sold!!! Glad he did. For sure I'll come back to this one, snake eyes not so much.
