In closing, this is the first time I have ever had this beer. I traded with a friend from the Maryland area. I have to say it was a great trade. This is a great brew. I love the hops that they put in this beer. There is a nice balance with everything going on in the beer. There is a nice balance between the hops and malt. They did a great job brewing this beer and designing it. They should be very proud of this brew. I am honor to have try this brew. If you are a fan of IPA’s and grapefruits, you will enjoy this brew. I highly recommend you trying this beer. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
