Decent IPA, a tad more on the pale side of the spectrum with subtle hops. Semi-watered down. No noticeable date on the can so might not have been fresh.

Surprised by the score on this one. It is easily one of my favorite IPAs in WNC. It is a west coast IPA in style and carries with it the expected hop aromas and flavors. Fresher is better obviously. What makes it so great thought is a fantastic malt balance that brings out the hops but doesn’t just play second fiddle like it is yellow seltzer water. It balances well. Drink this beer.

Pour out of a can is golden with a white 1in head. I'm told by my beer guy that this beer was very fresh canned about a week ago. Taste is ok but nothing amazing. Malt sweetness up front a small hoppy bite to finish. More on the pine end then citrus end of the ipa scale.

Draft from the brewery, this pours lightly hazed straw-golden with a huge ice cream head that has great retention. The nose is citric and floral. Big citrus notes in the mouth followed by a solid bitter finish. Definitely west-coast inspired, this complements a cigar perfectly. Goes down well in the heat and provides substance and complexity with the active carbonation and medium body. Nice example of a hop-forward "left coast" IPA.
