Still finding my way in the IPA department. This one is a good drinker for a noob like me; loaded with hops yet not overpowering. Did not find it exceptionally piney, as others have.

very nice beer. not as great as the some of the more highly rated beers here that I've had the pleasure to sample, but at less than a buck a bottle at my local supermarket, it's a steal.
