Not a bad IPA but just a little one-sided. It's all hop. Bold, even brash citrus assault your palate and there is not much malt to protect you. Funny though, I can smell biscotti and cookies, but just don't really appreciate those in the flavor. Mouthfeel is fine - though the bitterness lingers. Overall it's solidly built, but kinda not too polished. It has stiff competition from the multitude of great IPAs available - try Harpoon!
