It certainly had a big hit of citra hops, but I found it to be a more is less kind of deal. Maybe this NE IPA thing isn't for me? I don't like any so-called milkshake IPAs very much either, perhaps I'm just "old school".
Yeah, seems a few people I follow on Untappd feel the same way (no interest or lost interest in the NE IPA or "milkshake" style). I really enjoyed No. 5 but can understand the style isn't for everyone. I still love a solid west coast style IPA just as much.
