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.

A: golden/copper color, great head and lacing. A lot of bubbles. Looks incredibly enticing.

S: Tropical fruit, dank, oily, resiny, heady awesomeness.

T: The first sip and the first sip only comes across slightly too bitter. After that it is perfect. I guess once that heavy dose of lupulins hits your tongue it prepares you for this multi layered, fantastic tasting IPA. Great interplay of hops and biscuity malts (definitely mostly dank, oily hops). Pineapple, guava, grapefruit peel, sweet bread, cannabis.

M: full, creamy, sticky, perfect.

O: one of the best IPAs. Seek this out
