The Crusher is an American Double IPA that I started making years ago at the old pub. Hop heads were constantly asking for more hops. So, in the words of Frank Zappa, "Did you say you want some more? Well here's some more." While I enjoy hops with the rest of them, I still try to maintain some semblance of balance and drinkability. This beer is oozing with hop flavor and aroma with a very dry finish. Enjoy responsibly, this one can sneak up on you.

This is the first beer, to me, that really gives Heady a run for it's money. Great initial pop with a very nice smooth aftertaste. The hoppiness is certainly there and stays throughout. GREAT beer, I just hope they release it more often.
