Dank hops and a whole lotta citrus. Orange, grapefruit, pineapple. A classic West Coast (San Diego) style IPA to me. Less pine and more citrus than some of its brethren.

This has a citrus aroma and taste with a bitter finish. It doesnt seem round for some reason. It feels flat and lacks some body in the middle. Also, 7.3 seems a little high of an ABV to call it sessionable.
