This is an oustanding beer. It's everything I want in an IPA. It's hoppy with a malty back bone. There's a hint of citrus and pineapple. just love it. This has become my go to beer. I always keep some on handd. If there is ever anyone who says they've never had an IPA or they don't like IPA, this is the beer for them to try. A true classic that shows what a west coast IPA is all about.
