Much better than their regular IPA.

It poured out a nice hazy orange/yellow with a small, white head.

The smell was a combination of floral and citrus notes.

Taste wise this is much hoppier than the regular IPA offered. It had slight notes of floral hops, with much more emphasis on citrus and fruity hops. Not much malt presence. Finishes very crisp, dry and bitter. Extremely refreshing for the summer time.

I really enjoyed this and consider it far better than the regular IPA served. If you don't think their regular IPA is hoppy enough try this while you can.
