This is one of my go to IPAs if I can get it. It's a classic example of a good beer of the style. Wonderful floral hoppiness.

Clear golden color, decent citrusy smell, moderate head. It has decent carbonation but the taste was underwhelming. Nothing really stands out, not really enough malts or hops comes through. I would drink it again if someone offered it, but I won't buy it again. Glad I was able to buy a single.
