While this is a great example of a good west-coast double IPA, I don't know that I agree with the consensus so far in that it's top 50 worthy. The flavor was solid, but nothing over the top like some others, and the mouthfeel was pretty standard for a high quality IPA. Glad I tried it, but won't be rushing out to get it again.

This is a very well made beer, but from talking with friends, the citrus profile falls off quickly. Well balanced with a small amount of citrus, but dominated by the dank/bittering hops.
