4.5/5  rDev +3%

Creamy citrus grapefruit with a very long west coast oily finish.

Very well balanced hop bomb with light carbonation- Lingering hop oils will please

Dangerously drinkable.

Love this beer and the fruity overtones it offers. Complex flavors and really unique to my taste compared to most IPA's
