Overall an average IPA, not really getting a lot here that stands out. It's fine, and would have been a really good IPA 5 years ago or more. I'm not surprised they retired this beer this year. Any improvements on this solid beer will make for an outstanding IPA.

A pretty solid IPA. It splits the difference between mild pine and mild citrus notes, with just a hint of excessive bitterness coming from them. Pleasant, and not too overpowering.

16 oz can. Copper color with light haze and thick head with great retention, layered lace rings. Light malt n citrus aroma. The taste starts with toasty sweet malt that is quickly overtake by fruity and bitter hops, lots of pine and grassy notes in the end, lasts way past the sip. Good balance overall but leans to the bitter side. Medium soft creamy mouthfeel. Overall good IPA.
