Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.20%

Notes / Commercial Description:
This medium bodied American style IPA has an alluring golden glow and beautifully blends three strains of hops. While strong citrus notes ambush your taste buds halfway through the palate, the beer finishes very crisp and dry.

Sometimes I'm reluctant to review a beer because I know it's just not suited to my palate. This is one of them. Lots of darkness and no fruit. I get pine, herbs, garlic, chive, cannabis and grass. Light caramel body and a bitter finish.

Good but not great. For a $10 growler it's a no brained but most other ipa are better in my opinion...it's the aftertaste that you are left with a very bitter one which drops it on my scale

I'm not typically an IPA enthusiast but these guys have found a nice balance, not too much hop bitterness but great aroma and citrus flavor. As the weather warms up this is always a go to.
