Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

This year’s version (in our opinion) blows the first batch out of the water. The malt bill is simplified, resulting in a lighter, drier beer – which allows the massive hop additions to shine through. A mix of fresh grapefruit, lemons, limes, and oranges was added to the boil, and this batch also features a blend of several different American and New Zealand hop varieties, instead of just Cascade. At 9.5% ABV, this beer means business.

On tap @ The Lodge in Hilton Head SC.

I've been sipping the regular Westbrook IPA all week, and now on our last night here I find this beer on tap and HAD to try it.

Me likey.

Clear light golden body... Small head, rather weak lacing, but decent retention.

Smells hugely of citrus fruits with a light dry booziness coming through.

The flavor has a little sweet bread (think Hawaiin bread) kind of note before the citrus hops just fucking kill it. Large grapefruit, orange, pineapple, and lemon notes with a nice New Zealand hop kick I can pick out.

Good bitterness, not too overwhelming, but firm and strong-- you KNOW you're drinking a hopped up beer for sure. Kind of light body, but good carbonation and a nice dry finish.

Overall-- delicious. It isn't a world class DIPA, but it certainly rocked my world after this past week. Totally worth a try.

Serving type: on-tap
