On the heavier, richer side, but dry and balanced enough to not wear on your palate. Very little sweetness, but lots of body and rich, bready malt character that blends perfectly with the hops. I only wish I could brew an IPA this good.

As a side note, the carbonation level right out of the bottle is just perfect. I expected to have to pour gently, since most brews are a bit overcarbed in my taste, but this one came out creamy and gentle, with a very gentle carbonic bite. Bonus points!

This is a great IPA that deserves to be on your 'every day' beer list (along side Prima Pils, of course).

edit: just figured out what this brew reminds me of - Sierra Nevada Celebration.
