It's good. Cdiap citrus flavor like a lagunitas IPA but not grapefruity. I enjoyed it, but I prefer a lagunitas if I'm looking for this style of beer. Not bad at all, but not amazing.

This is a well balanced complex beer with a satisfying malty head and nice lacing. The consistency is what I would expect from an IPA and I was not disappointed in that respect.

It starts off with a floral punch to the nose followed by fruity notes (apricot perhaps) and finishes with a musty, almost coconut vibe. There is nothing wrong with this beer. But for some reason the lingering aftertaste just doesn't agree with my palette.
