Thin body, overpoweringly bitter without the hop flavors you associate with west coast beers... Not that it's a west coast beer. Well. I Believe in IPA!  (Level 29) Earned the I Believe in IPA! (Level 29) badge!

I'm only going to dock a half-star for now. Seems more cloyingly sweet now, less grapefruit astringency. Due to lose another quarter star.

Maybe... Maybe? Not enough body, but this is a shocker. One of their best beers and I dislike the Ranger and the Rampant.

Holy fucking hell is this magic. Tastes like an 8%er... Lively body, huge clean Citra hop loveliness... Like a sunkissed forest walk. Hopped Up (Level 3) Earned the Hopped Up (Level 3) badge!

Cloudy, straightforward hoppy IPA. A little thin given the opacity.
