A pithy, sticky and ripe fruit driven IPA with a bit of a battle going on between the caramelly malt backend and the tropical to piney hop feel. Neither side really wins out here, although this beer goes down easier than it could do.

Picked up a sixer at a Liquor Store on Muddy Branch Road here in Gaithersburg. Pours a translucent cider brown color with little head. Nose has some citrus and minty hops but it isn't terribly inspiring.

The hops are more assertive in the flavor, although there is still reasonable balance. The carbonation could probably be lowered a touch. This is fine, but pretty nondescript. Nothing to write home about.
