One word: Underrated.

This is a unique, delicious IPA with many layers of flavor. Too many IPAs these days taste either like sweet malt or just bitterness. Or both.

You can actually taste something different in this brew.

This is a great IPA that every hophead should try.

A solid 88/100

Review from BA Mag Issue #117 ( Oct 2016 )

Fruity, Dank, Bitter, Interesting
Hidden Cove doesn’t go with your usual mix of hops for an IPA; Patroon includes Hallertau Blanc, Centennial, and Summit. Honeydew rind, orange pith, pineapple skin, and green tea come across in the nose and on the palate from those three varieties. And while there’s more than enough bitterness to go around, that hop flavor is what really shines here. Some maltiness does come through though, and a kiss of alcohol is noticeable. In the massive pool of IPAs available these days, this one easily advances past the middle of the pack. [Jason]

From a 12oz can. My luck is usually bad when grabbing something I've never heard of off the shelf. Well, my luck may be changing! A tasty, slightly more hoppy than malty IPA. Melon, orange and grapefruit shine in this hidden gem.

this light golden ipa pours with a two to three finger head from bottle to pint. It has a florally light body and taste.
