Drake's definitely makes some vibrant glowing ipas, and this one is no exception.

Great mix of many citrus smells here, variety, you really get a bouquet (sic?) of fruit, orange, lemon, lime, banana even, just lush. Always have to give a tip of the cap to the breweries that do the dry hopping this extensive and keep prices down on the bottles ($6).

Taste, sure, there's some heat and sweet on this, but its still a really good mildly great double ipa. The bitterness isn't egregious, it allows the floral fruit hop vibe chill and the malt backbone and sweetness are riding cargo.
Another winner by Drake's. This and Denogginizer are pretty much like, flip of the coin always, win, for me.
