I've had beers from this brewery in the past and were OK. This may be one of the worst IPA's I ever drank. There also was no can date (which I hate) so I don't know fresh it was. Avoid this beer!

I haven't had a new IPA from this brewery in a while so I was excited to try their take on the NEIPA style. This beer did not disappoint. Very juicy with some spiciness makes this a must try.
