not normally a fan of IPAs. I have been drinking quite a few though since buying the leftovers from a bar and having some given to me. I found Henry Weinhard Woodland Pass IPA to be better than most. Most of them taste like old strained asparagus to me. however i think the cascade hops in this seem to be crisper and more refreshing. not as pungent in the aroma as most. I could also still discern some malt flavor.
