Ratebeer 3.91 98th percentile
Beer Advocate A-
For a brew this big, the hop aroma is oddly faint. You can barely pick up citrus and pine; I don't even have a cold. The taste is all hops, pine, resin and astringent. There is a bit of sweetness there, but it is over shadowed by the hop bitterness.
The finish is quite dry with a full astringent, pine mouth coating.

I don't get it. There were great reviews at ratebeer and BA, it just didn't move me.

Nothing happened, went to bed early.
This was a solid IPA, just not stellar. I think it is because we have Phillips brewery in town and you have to be good to beat their stuff.
