The best APA I have ever had. I had it at the brewery, but I hope they bottle this again so I have a chance of getting this out in Colorado...

Honey colored with that familiar clear as a bell appearance similar to Pliny.One finger of soapy white head, sheets of lacing.

Aroma lets you know this one is about the hops: fruity tropical aromas of different varieties tantalize the senses, mouth watering.

Flavors are a great reflection of the juicy aroma,malt is there just for support.

Relatively low level of carbonation that is well suited for the style, crisp dry finish, delightful.

I can't help but think of Row 2 as a more hop forward, single IPA version of Pliny. The drinkability factor is off the charts, the IBUs and the tropical juiciness continue to shine with each pour. Row 2 is a sensational IPA that comes highly recommended.
