Who would have thought that a bottle showing two elderly gents chuckling would contain such a blast of juicy hops? Maybe that's why they are laughing!
Excellent and long-lasting head, good lace retention, and a marvelous aroma of hops. Juicy, juicy hops taste with a slightly chewy mouthfeel. And then more hops. And all balanced with a lingering malty sweetness. One of my new favorite IPAs, very much in a league with 60 Minute and other hops blasters -- but, again, nicely balanced with malt.
