Not too big on this one

Not bad, but not hoppy enough for me. Kinda a bland ipa. I still like it but nothing special. I expected more intense hops from a "California IPA."

Very smooth, less hoppy ipa. Not a bad beer overall but a bit pricey for what you're getting. The initial taste is a bit grapefruit/ a bit citrusy, followed shortly thereafter with the bitter hoppy hit, which lingers a bit long. All in all, a very smooth drinkable ipa but not my first choice when I'm grabbing a brew.

Not a fan of the lingering aftertaste. Not bad at all just carried on too long.

Grapefruit flavor with a hoppy bitter aftertaste.

Sweet caramel overtones

Fruity aroma bleeds into the taste and overwhelms the hops a little. 7.1 percent alcohol dominates the finish, but a pretty pleasant aftertaste.

Very balanced. Aftertaste is bitter with a little bit of malty sweetness.

Way to hoppy for me! Tried something different but not my style. Has a bitter after-taste as well. Better luck next time!
