Drank this on tap on location. This is an excellent West Coast style IPA - crisp and full of character. Too bad there's no way this stuff will ever make it to Del.

I would have told you this was great, until I tasted their alpha project cascade, now I think its downright generic. blonde in color and a little drab on the head front. nose of bitter hops and almost no grain, where is the middle here? the taste is well bitter, but doesn't have any real interesting characteristics to speak of, perhaps a bit of a attitude, but I don't taste nuance, and as such, this is like about a billion other American made india pale ales, nothing to it. not bad, just stock. lighter body is welcomed, but the carbonation is shy of where it needs to be, and honestly the more I drink of this the less I like it. call me pretentious, but im just getting disillusioned with industry standard ipas, this is that, lacking individuality. easy drinking, but I don't care anymore.
