i enjoy this IPA quite a bit. as noted it could be called hop juice. But this one seems to have the right blend of hops that others are missing. This bitterness does not leave me begging for another beer to wash away the bitterness, it leaves me thinking, ’geez hops are fantastic!’

I like that...Hop Juice. Good one, Oakes. Invitingly fruity and sharp aroma. The dry hopping really makes itself apparent. Probably my favorite brew in the house.

Pretty much hop juice. A hint of malt gives it a little balance, but it really isn’t about balance. A fun beer, mind you, but these Cali IPAs need to mellow out a bit.
