I had this fresh from the tap in the Breakwater Bar and Grill (cafe) in Victoria BC, it was refreshing after a long day on the cruise ship. A lot of people expect a super hop bomb with every IPA and miss the true beauty of the style, this one was refreshing and had the perfect hop bite. While lacking much of a head the flavor was solid and had a medium mouthfeel with slightly firm aftertaste which cleared before the next sip, a very easy drinking brew that would be good anytime. Overall I enjoyed this beer and only wish I could’ve had a few more!
