Nothing special just a typical run of the mill ipa.

Oh the ipa fad- everyone making money by selling ipas and trying to separate the over hyped, the good, the mediocre and the bad. I got this as part of a mix and match 6 pack of different dc area brews when I was recently visiting the area. Just a kind of "bleh" ipa. Not Really an ipa, more of a pale ale. No real aroma, no discernible hop flavor, just kind of bleh.

I love me some ipa's but wouldn't try this one again

It is exactly like having your mouth washed out with soap. Not in a good way.
