Great IPA, definitely one of my favorites. An initial blast of hops with a bitter, but smooth grapefruit aftertaste. Try the cans if you come across them, I prefer them over the bottles.

The smell was grainy with piney, sweet hops and bubblegum. The taste was strong but sweet and smooth with a dry bitter finish. This beer is wonderfully delicious. yb

From a can dated 4/28. Nice looking beer, smells very fresh but not overly aromatic - just doesn't jump out at you. The taste is pretty much perfect if anything too well balanced just because nothing jumps out at you. The feel is the best part of the beer. Perfect body and carbonation, a pleasure to drink.

Well balanced IPA with plenty of hoppiness to satisfy. This is a solid go to beer to pair with just about any kind of food.
