Hoppy, but intensely fruity. I guess it completely depends on what hop character a person likes in their IPA. This brew is soft on the palatte regarding maltiness and very fruity. Ive since used some trace amounts of Columbus or Chinook in the blend to add a touch of "dankness." If you love big fruity hop bombs...this is a nice recipe.
