I've waited to do this. It's been a long drive down the road to hop heaven. I've tasted IPA's, DIPA's, IIPA's by the dozens, and become time-honored intimate with twenty to thirty specific varieties, from all over the country. What makes this IPA sooo good is the slightly different profile that separates it from the over copied (albeit tasty) northwestern IPA's. The beauty of the unfiltered murk and the super sudsy, Victorian-lace producing head, all adds to the occasion, making this a quite attractive beer. Odors are pungent and floral. White grapefruit resides in a sap-like chewiness. And best of all??? This ale is dynamite when served both room temp and ice-cold. This beer is not only for hop lovers, but for artisans who really appreciate what goes into a perfect session. Top notch.
