This is a consistent good beer. Had it on tap and bottle/Glass. Always nice color and lacing. The smelly is very fresh, citrus, grapefruit, some pine. Good medium taste with just the perfect easy bitter finish not overwhelming at all. I find it a bit similar to Firestone Union Jack IPA.

Serving type: on-tap
