Always grab some sixers of this when in OH visiting the in-laws. Noticed I never gave this a proper review. 12oz bottle into a goblet. The pour yields a dark honey-amber with a thick frothy bone-white head. Great retention, with spotty lace left behind. Pine, citrus, floral overtones. Nothing new here, but the aroma is so potent and fresh. Love it.
Medium carbonation gives this beer enough heft to hold up the flavors, but without any lasting astringency. The reason I love this beer so much is the perfect balance between the bitter hops and sweet malty backbone. I would say this even leans slightly to the sweet side, which isnít a detriment to it at all. Grapefruit, musk melon, orange give this a nice fruity quality. The hops add just a touch of oily feel as well, and they donít linger too long on the aftertaste. Just enough "burn" to satisfy the hop-head in me, but fleeting enough to keep me gulping this one. This is one of the most drinkable and approachable IPAs I have had, and it will be one I continually buy when in the area. Canít wait until Christmas when I can get some more!

Iím surrounded by craft beer at work, but this IPA is my go to every time. Taste is very well balanced between hops vs malt and pine vs citrus. Definitely get some pineapple and dank resin flavors going on here.
Thereís so many good IPAs out there that itís hard for one to standout, but this one manages to be one of the best Ohio has to offer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
A typical go-to IPA in Ohio. Fresh bottle. Pours a light amber with softly clingy head. Aroma of a pineapple-peach tropical medley, some light spruce, very Citra-heavy nose. Flavor is very similar, pineapple, peachy, tropical, evergreen resin, flowery and bitter on the back end of the palate. Just a very solid brew.
