It did not sell well at Costco so it has been discontinued. $14.97 per case as they unload it. It has a different flavor but I like it. A little heavier than some pale ales but lighter than a IPA. They were asking almost $25 per case before it was discontinued. Only about 6-8 left at the Costco near us. They are having trouble because Lagunitas and Sierra are both cheaper.

12oz bottle poured into a tulip glass

A: Orange body white 2 finger head, medium lacing and retention

S: Smell of pineapple and grapefruit hops

T: Follows the nose along with a bit of peppery spiciness. Some bitterness but not a lot.

M: Medium carbonation and body some lingering bitterness on the palette

O: This is pretty good If it were cheaper I would drink it all the time as its one of the better pale ales I've had.
