This is my favorite beer to date! Today is my birthday and on Friday I'm taking off work to hit up the brewery down in San Diego. This has to be the IPA that helped San Diego reach it's claim to fame. Perfect taste and 7% to boot! The perfect beer for a beer tasting, kicking with some friends, or even for a raging weekend night.
