Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
A base of pale, Munich, and Carapils malts is just enough to contain the massive hop flavor and aroma packed into this highly drinkable IPA. A blend of four American hop varieties is added four times in the kettle and twice in the fermentor for a complex and layered hop experience. Best served at 45-50˚F in a tulip or English style pint glass.

65 IBU

4.58/5  rDev +12.5%
look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Shared as an extra in recent trade- appears to be canned on 11-2

Appearance: this brew pours a hazy yellow-orange with small, white bubbles. Initially, carbonation seemed like it might be too much, but subsided very quickly. Some small bubbles still rolling up the tulip glass 15 minutes after pouring.

Smell: for anyone who likes hops, this is as close to perfect as an IPA can get without being Pliny. Heavy grapefruit and orange peel aroma. Light yeast smell. I can smell the beer from across the table.

Taste: WOW! Great flavor. Explodes with citrus hops from the minute it hits your mouth. Almost an almond finish. Carbonation is really nice for an IPA- not too much, not too little. Are they sure this is not a DIPA? Malt finish is slight compared to huge hop front end.

Overall: I would say this compares to some of the big name IPAs that are often talked about on BA. I need to get me a six-pack.

Cheers!

3.88/5  rDev -4.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

12oz can. Pours a cloudy brownish amber color with some sediment and a big head. Some lacing. Not a big nose on this beer. Dank hops, pine, apricots, and grapefruit. The taste is piney hops and grapefruit up front. More dankness and pine as it warms. Light malt flavor. Herbal. Bitter grapefruit finish with some dank and pine. A hint of mint. Oily mouthfeel with a ton of carbonation. Overall, solid IPA I would grab again.
