Did someone ask for hops? Tired of beers that promise a full lupulin experience, but never deliver more than richly malted bitterness? It’s no secret that this is what we excel at. We’ve been brewing world class IPAs for years. Our flagship is the culmination of a decades worth of studying and brewing. Take a step above and acclimate to what an IPA should be.

Burnt amber/orange body. Off-white sticky head. This has a great smell. Pineapple, sharp hops, some light pine and juicy fruit. What a great hop taste. Of course, the taste and smell are similar. Heady Topper is spectacularly balance. Elevated leans more on the bitter/hoppy side...zingy taste. Hop bite, with a great taste. The feel is well-suited for this IPA. Not too light or too heavy, but a more full IPA. A double IPA could fit into this body. The carbonation is substantial and fits well in the mouth.

Overall - A classic West Coast IPA style that deserves the spot it has on the BA Top 250. I think it can move higher.
