Not a bad IPA, just not one of my favorites. The taste is a little lacking in flavor, in my opinion. It's just a bit one-dimentional. Appearance and smell are just about average, and the taste is mildly hoppy. Not much else to report. I've picked up this beer several times from the grocery store when there aren't many other options, but I'm usually not all that thrilled with it.

T: grapefruit, slight pine, pineapple, mango, mmm

M: perfect mouthfeel for an IPA, medium body, decent dryness but not bone dry.
