Solid IPA but only bought 12 pak due to on sale for 12 bucks. Worth it taste and feel wise but not sure would purchase at full price. Still not a bad IPA

My current favorite beer right now. Not necessarily the best ipa I've had but i can't think of hardly any critiques. Absolutely delicous and citrusy without the sometimes overwhelming sweetness found in the new "tropical" trend. Good bitterness that i love in the more traditional and west coast ipas but not necessarily slapping you in the teeth (it claims to on the can haha). Very crispy, smooth and slammable. Ranking 5 overall mainly cuz i can get 2 tall boys for 3 bucks at my local convenience store and its just a damn good beer. Although, i think it tastes different bottled and on draft, can is the way to go but i prefer cans for all beers.

Oddly, I enjoyed this brew more from the bottle than on draught. The bottle presented a more balanced beer; restrained and refined. On draught the flavors of menthol and cat pee (not actually a bad thing in a heavily hopped beer if done deftly) were a bit too aggressive.
The appearance was nice, but not particularly true to style. Lacing was light.
Makes me wonder if he he kegged product I sampled was an off batch.

A: Deep hazy gold with rich white head and glue like lacing.
N: Hops, citrus, floral notes, and minor malt.
T: Follows the nose, nice bite on this one with a smoothing citrus mix. Very nice flavors, really enjoyable IPA.
M: Medium
O: Clean crisp IPA with very nice flavors and bite. Easy to consume.
