This beer was damn good. Great body, little to no head, very sweet hop in the nose, not that citric acid smell that some fruits give off, but a very sweet smell. The taste was exactly like the smell, almost floral at times, jasmine, blooming orange or lemon tree, very very floral in the taste, biscuity, and that classic wet hop profile we all love. The body is light-medium, oily at times, very smooth, refreshing, and dry. If you love IPAs and want to transition into DIPAs, this is the beer for you. It's a great introduction into the heavier style. Note, if you're use to DIPAs you probably will not find of an "X" factor with this brew. But considering it's style, it's a solid brew. The only down side for the consumer is it's price tag. For this, I'd be much happier going for the 4pck pints of Modern Times.
