Just a short note on one of the most marvelous beers, it must have something to do with the white wheat that makes this very special. My good friend tolerates my IPA madness, but he screamed this is the first IPA he has ever liked a LOT. Could not give him enough of it, and I have to say the fragrance and overall balance of this beer between the malts and hoppy flower/fruit aromas makes it one of my very hard to get favorites!

What I hate about this beer is that it makes other beers taste bad. Best single IPA I've had aside from Focal Banger. Tastes great. Juicy and fresh with a deliciously light malt backbone. Get your hands on a fresh bottle. It's great.

Like drink emulsified hops, opaque like orange juice! Flavors are perfectly done!

There is absolutely NOTHING bad I can say about this beer. Other than I wish it was brewed in my backyard of course
