Great goto IPA. Had 2 kegs this year on tap and always a fan favorite.

Hoppy and bitter but very well balanced with malt to smooth it out.

Its a high caliber IPA bit also is a great value. $156 for 15 gallons is a steal. I suggest it to anyone who is a fan of west coast IPA's and can fet their hands on it.

Cheers!
