Not a fan at all. Bad taste, no depth. Threw it out

Shocked to see the level this beer is being reviewed at. Wondering if there's any way this isn't the same beer, because the beer I had today was a Good to Very Good IPA, nicely balanced by a warm background sweetness framing the hop bitters, and nice flavor. Should be reviewing in the mid-eighties, not the high sixties.

Maybe it's a new batch? Did they tweak it recently? I don't know. All I can say is, based on what I just drank, this beer is underrated.

Disappointing. Very little taste with only a sharp hops bite
