This first time I ever had this I had no idea what it was, and just finished a long bike ride. I was completely blown away. Get some.

Real hoppy, which was unexpected. Very citrusy and really quite sweet to taste. It reminded me a bit of Ballast Point's Sculpin IPA.

Smelled fantastic--I was hugging the empty bottle after I had finished, just taking whiff after whiff of that floral, hoppy aroma. This is a heavier pale ale compared to say, Sierra Nevada's Pale Ale.

I enjoyed this very much, but a little too heavy for Close-to-Summer weather for me. Might enjoy this better in the fall. Highly Recommend!

I'm admitedly a beer novice, so take this for what it's worth: this might be the best beer I've ever tried. The carton states how we should cease classifying everything and simply let it be what it is. Amen, especially as it pertains to this beer.

Great smell and look but I'm no hop head. The over the top IPA bitterness made me hand this one off. It's a no for me.

Great aroma, great taste, and a great overall beer for the summer. Tasted great on tap, bottled seemed good too, maybe a little strong with the alcohol content which was more apparent in the bottle for some reason. One of my favorites.
