Riduclously drinkable IPA. The flavors are subtle, yet complex, marvelous hopping at the finish. Not as massive as others, but that's to this brews advantage.

Seemed sorta oxydized, but was disappointed by the lack of substance compared to the outrageous price I paid. For the $$$, way better options locally.
