Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

Ugly silver can shared by MrBarleywine, thanks for the opportunity!
Slightly hazy pale with a decent sized long lasting head. Huge pine and resin with hints of earth and onion. Faint maltiness barely balances here. Resinous hop flavor with just enough crackery malt and a firm level of bitterness. Medium body and carbonation. Fantastic brew!
