Pretty typical, middle-of-the-road IPA. As compared to the granddaddy of American IPA's, Sierra Nevada, it's a little more hoppy, but not as good overall. Not as balanced and I noted a little bit of a metallic presence. Also, more like an English IPA...lacking the citrus presence that the American northwest hops are famous for. Worth trying if you're in the area, but not worth a special trip.
