2024 has a good balance of hops and malt, probably an A-. profile - April 23, 2021
A. The 2021 was really good, big malt, complex hops from floral, earthy to dank. A bit sweet up front and in finish. Aroma is faint, but more malt than hop. Tried one 4-30-22 and it held up well. Some oxidation flavors, but in a good way. A. 2022 at 11% is an A+. Earthy aroma leads to a dank flavor with a fairly light body. No hot alcohol. Had this one again on 10-13-23 and it was maltier, but still good. B+ aged. 2023 at 11% is a B+, because it?s not that complex. Nice citrus hop presence, no hot alcohol, some malt. Had all three side by side on 9-11-23. All held up well with some mellowing of good.

This is one of my favorite IPAs. Very hoppy, very strong, not too bitter. Just right for IPA lovers. If you dont like IPAs I dont recommend it. This is the real deal. profile - June 24, 2016

Bitter and smooth with very little lingering aftertaste. Good choice! profile - August 9, 2015
A perfectly balanced American pale ale. One of those beers that leave you wanting for more at the end. It is hoppy but not overly hoppy. This beer truly cannot be appreciated by someone who is not seasoned in IPAs or APAs.
