Huge tropical pungent hops so pungent I'm getting hints of that garlic/onion smell but in the best way possible. Very crisp and huge fruity notes from the hops and ending with that intense pine and pungent taste that I was getting on the smell. There is some sweetness in there but its all about the hops in this one. Honestly this is my favorite IPA.

Someone at either BevMo or TotalWine suggested this one. Definitely one of my favorites. Hoppy, refreshing. Just an all around good IPA. Shame you can't find it outside of California...

Pours bright yellow almost golden, with a very wide white foam head, excellent retention and lacing. Aroma is spectacular, citric, fruity, hoppy. Taste is very well balanced between hoppiness and maltiness. Awesome IPA drink fresh.

This pours a dark straw color, has bone white head, slightly fruity piney smell, hop flavor not too overpowering but very present. This is a very drinkable IPA. I really enjoy it.
