Doing a side-by with juju. Deeper orange color. Incredible hop aroma. Full citrus. Juju thicker and sweeter and smoother. Tie. Ohio rocking the IPAs. I was almost going to skip buying Chillwave in bottles. So glad I didn't. One of Great Lake's best.

Too sweet. It kills the hop flavor. Unfortunately unimpressed...
