Bottle shared. Donnie indicated he drove to this brewery on a road trip exclusively for a case of this. I have to save it probably was NOT a wasted trip. Just straight up delicious hop forward IPA with big citrus and a light malty sweetness. Super solid.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle courtesy of Cory poured into a pint glass. Faded amber color with a creamy tan cap. First I need to point out that the level of hopping and the alcohol percentage peg this closer to pale ale territory. Considered as an IPA, this beer falls short. But that doesn’t mean it isn’t tasty. Despite being light on hop aroma and bitterness, it definitely isn’t a nasty east-coast malt bomb. The malt stands out as being very bready -- not a lot of gross crystal malt or oversweet caramel malt here, just fresh wheat bread. The hops that are present are sorta woody and herbal, low on citrus, with a modest dusty bitterness in the finish. If this is classed as a pale ale i might go as high as 3.7 for it.
