Woah, am I glad I got to try this!!

The drive up to Kern was a pain in the ass that's forsure!

This DIPA makes it all worth it, though.

This beer is phenomenal, the fruity hoppy aroma is present, but not overpowering, the taste is a perfect representation of what Citra hops are capable of, light pine with the perfect mix of hoppy citrus notes!

Wow was this tasty!

Great beer.

Was pretty disappointed in this one. With the limited availability, hype, and top rating on BA, I had pretty high hopes. Frankly this does not belong in the same class as Pliny, Heady, Zombie or other world class IPAs.
