Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

Hmmm. How to describe this beer. It is reminiscent of Heady with it's dankness, smell, and flavor profile. Yet, it's much more drinkable. Has a lighter body to it and leaves you wanting more. Citrus, pine, and I wanna say a Simcoe hop bomb.

Overall, one of the best IPA's I've had to date.
