Never checked this beauty in before. Malt sweetness instantly tempered by a solid hop presence. Medium ale body with crisp lager feel.Earned the Verified Adventure (Level 8) badge!
Great hop burst. Nice body. Light but flavourful. Just a rock solid brew. The HRB SMaSH series is pretty great. Always exciting.Earned the Middle of the Road (Level 8) badge!
Bright, smooth, awesome. Very light but with wonderful Amarillo and citra hop character. Very good.

Damn good IPA. Bit of pine like resin and fantastic body. Mouthfeel is bang on. Minor lack of vibrancy but still awesome.

Checking in my favourite all time IPA on IPA Day! First time I've ever checked in the same beer twice. Drinking it in Vermont. Amazing.

Excellent light, silky body. Great vibrancy and solid hops without getting too bitter. Good character despite lower IPA ABV. Sessionable.Earned the Middle of the Road (Level 7) badge! Earned the Land of the Free (Level 10) badge!
