Had one of these on tap at the brewery last summer & am just getting around to putting down my notes in here. A rather moderate & decent blend of citrus & pine with some astringent bitterness; to me this is a good IPA, but not more.

Had this on draft in Waistfield VT. Light bodied with citris aroma. Lots of carbonation. Finish is very crisp and dry. Made for a great summer IPA.
