A bottle shipped from Washington. Could see this at 4.25+ fresher easily. Amazing balance with the malt and bittering hops. The bitterness is satisfying as a hop head, but not overwhelming as I want another right now. Definately leaves you with that dryness that makes you want another beer. Clean, non-lingering malt presence, not syrupy like a lot of DIPA are getting.

Guys...this beer is extraordinary. Like wow. Super enjoyable IIPA. I get really exited when I smell the yeasty dankness and intense fruity hops over a strong malt backbone. I don't know what else to say. I got the last 3/4 a growler full from Chuck's Hop shop and damn, amazing

I'm so pleased to have lived long enough to experience the Golden Age of IPA. Not only is the explosion of IPA's newer than the Internet, but just try and find a virus! The many makers of this blessed concoction all know one thing: mediocrity will result in the same fate as the Commodore and Adam Computers from the 80's. Pfft! History.

You've tasted them...you know. You'll soon ask a friend "hey, whatever happened to that Goose Hollow IPA?" "It sucked, remember?" "Oh, yeah."

Humulo Nimbus has as good a chance as any to survive this era of new IPA's arriving almost daily. It's strong in all the essential departments, but it is greater than the sum of those parts. Let's see....an analogy...hmmm....okay! When 4-part voices ring perfectly in music, an overtone is created, a "5th voice" if you will. Nobody is singing it, but you can hear it, an octave above the tonic, hovering overhead. Humulo Nimbus has one hell of an overtone.
