This is an excellent American IPA. Ranks up there with DFH 60, Stone, and Smuttynose as the best examples of a extremely flavorful, well balanced, and colorful beers I have had. A truly stellar example of the style. I have not been wowed by a beer in a while and this does it in a way that is not ostentatious or over the top. It poured a hazy, golden-yellow with a nice eggshell-white head that left plenty of lacing. The nose was slightly nutty, with sharp hops presence. There was a faint whiff of alcohol deep in the inhalation. The taste is excellent. Very dry, hoppy, and fruity without an overly bitter flavor. This is a simple, well-rounded beer that generously masks its ABV with a excellent flavor. A nice summer sipper with a crisp finish. Perfect for the lazy afternoons with a ballgame on the radio.
