Excellent. Hoppy, balanced, dry. Pure resin and dank citrus hops.

08/2013 - The nose is dank, aromatic hops with some floral, malty notes up front; orange, pine, more malts on the palate; very impressive mouthfeel; bitter, sticky, chewy finish, yet it's clean and quaffable. That's a scary thought. One of the best West coast IPAs out there!
