I've consumed a lot of IPAs and I have to say that this has been one of my favorites. It has a nice cloudy appearance with good head, a floral and fruity aroma, a good amount of hops with a nice strong bite, and a very satisfying beer to drink both going down and after. If you are an IPA fan, you will like this beer.
