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.

I actually liked this beer more than I expected to, given that I'm not a big IPA guy. This one looks intimidating from the outside, with a slightly higher alcohol content and 100 IBU's, but it doesn't just beat you into submission with hops. There's a good flavor here and I can see why this is their biggest seller. If I could get more of this brewery's stuff in my area, I'd try other beers from them too.

This got me hooked on IPAs. All others prior were too strong, too flat, too citrus-y, too pine-y... too overpowering and unbalanced. Some are just plain boring. This one is just right.
