This is a solid IPA. Not knowing how fresh this is, I'm going to assume there was a better aroma at one time. I just don't get much aroma. I think I smell Columbus. I definitely taste it, or something like it. I am no expert at hops. Overall, the aroma is off. The taste is quite nice.

After a few sips, the bitterness kicks in. I haven't had many beers like this. It gradually builds up with bitterness it seems. I like that a lot. Solid balanced IPA right here. I could drink quite a few of these.

Other than the aroma, this is a solid beer. I think I got a slightly not as fresh beer but it still stood out as a nice IPA. I will be asking my bottle shop guy about the flow of these beers. Great price, local, and I will be getting more of their brew.
