Clean, crisp, IPA. Very drinkable. Subtle hoppiness, crisp like a Pilsner. Pours a golden color, Citra hops are clear in the nose. Crisp mouthfeel. Clean finish. I’m no expert but this is a go to beer. Would be Good ice cold in the summer or as a change of pace in the fall, as I enjoyed it. Lived up to the rating.

This was the version brewed for the field museum. Also the batch I had was brewed two months prior to purchase. Both of these probably negatively affected my review.

You know, I think it's a little hyped. It's a good beer but it doesn't blow my hair back. There's plenty more IPAs out there that trump this guy. Probs wouldn't buy again. Need to try some of the other variations though.

Very good beer. Smooth with plenty of the flavor that APA fans love.
