Really, this beer is not good. Aftertaste is like fish, its namesake. Not crisp, not refreshing, not sessionable like a west coast IPA. I don't know how it even falls in this class. Its bad fruity with a bad aftertaste.

Used to be good. Sold out. Cranking them out ad nauseum. Now just a shelf turd, 15 months after bottle date.
