I disagree with some reviews I've read of this beer. It's not a mess and not overly hopped for the sake of hoppiness. It's not that bitter despite what the IBUs say. The sweet malt and citrus and mango pulled from the hops really balances this beer in my opinion. It's quite delicious and underrated. It's definitely a huge IPA with a big mouthfeel and lots of hops, but it knows what it's doing with them. Good cold and at room temp. The alcohol wasn't noticeable to my mouth either, maybe my body. Granted I'm a hop head and drink my fair share of double and triples but one reviewer said this was too hoppy even for hop fanatics... nope... It's just right!

Don't be shy. Go and Try.
