Believe the hype. This is a fantastic hoppy dbl IPA. The unfortunate part is the availability and the cost.

The pine hoppy smell and taste just makes you want more after every sip. Just make sure you're home or have a dd as this also gives a happy glow buzz.

Equal to La Cumbre Elevated IPA and Pliny the Elder for my taste buds. I just wish I could try all three at the same sitting.

Serving type: can
