Hydro sample tasted amazing!

Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.
- Benjamin Franklin (and I don't care if this quote has been largely discredited/misquoted...I like it!)

Beer, if drank with moderation, softens the temper, cheers the spirit and promotes health.

Probably in line with a lot of breweries aiming for a more sessionable IPA. Blasphemy, I say.

Agreed on the comments...seems weaker this year, both malt, mouthfeel and hops. Still a great beer, just not how I remembered it. Good time to brew a full-bodied clone and jack it up a little.
