Fantastic. Super smooth. Still not a 5, in my mind, but it's a great unique beer and I'm glad I got to try one!

Evil Twin Brewing by Life Is Not a Problem to Be Solved but a Reality to Be Experienced

J Maxwell B. is drinking a Life Is Not a Problem to Be Solved but a Reality to Be Experienced by Evil Twin Brewing at El Bait Shop

I drank 3 of these back to back which is rare for me to do with anything at El Bait. One of the best IPAs I've had. Maybe tops.
