I really can't fault this beer for nearly anything. Delicate floral, juicy, hops with a hint of pungency on the finish. Balanced towards the bitterness. Very soft pleasant malts and smooth as. It's a pale yellow, with a white head. Really nice. Perhaps light for the winter, but probably the only thing a person could want in the heat.

Smells like buttery popcorn. Like the sticky movie theater floor beneath my feet. Nice. Has a sweet biscuity flavor. Lemon zest. Bready. Unique IPA! My kind of malt bomb.

Sometimes the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.

This beer is just crafted so well. It isn't all citrus and fruit juice like a lot of the descriptions convey. There is a biscuity, crackery crispness to this beer than makes it stand out from your typical IPA, but it's full of pineapple and some nice, clean dankness as well.

When all of these pieces come together, it's truly a refreshing, unique brew.

Dark amber color, slightly cloudy. Full aromatic hop nose -- sets the stage for a taste that does not disappoint. Strong citrus hops, grapefruit flavor -- exactly what I hope to find in a WC IPA. A nice bitterness that lingers long after swallow. Appropriate carbonation.

One of my favorites. Even though it is not available locally, I try to maintain a small stock of this gem in my beer fridge. Props to the bartender at Brews in Granville, Ohio who recommended this one.
