There are almost 1500 reviews that will cover the profile ASTMO's, so this will go a different direction.

This is a workhorse IPA. While not a special occasion pour, it is worthy as a fridge stocker. A bit more subtle than Stone, a bit more aggressive than Sierra Nevada, it hits a nice balance. A drinkable IPA with enough hop bite to remind you it is indeed an IPA. This is my wife's house beer and there is always one in the fridge.
