Much better than I think it gets credit for. The beer pours a straw colored yellow with a thin head that trails the glass. A lot of great floral smells come through because of the hops. The taste has a hop punch up front and then a lot of great toasted flavors coming through. A very complex, yet approachable beer. Would definitely recommend for an everyday beer, or maybe a nice beer to start getting into IPA's with.

Decent and a good price but seems to be dropping in quality.

A subtle, solid IPA. When I lived in Boston, this was my go-to IPA. An excellent contrast to the West Coast, superhop approach (though I like those too).
