in my search for the perfect IPA, I have found a really good one... no bones about it, this is an outstanding IPA!
the label said it's a triple IPA, and I believe it. The hops are more pine than citrus, but there are hints of lemon peel in the aftertast.
I would compare it to Dogfish Head 90 in terms of quality and drinkability, but the taste is distinctive. It's New Zealand hops set it apart from anything else I have tasted. They are grassy, but not overwhelmingly so... It's hard to describe how well balanced the hops are in this brew.
tonight I am comparing it head to head with New Belgium Rampant Imperial IPA and Widmer Brothers Nelson Imperial IPA. Rampant is still my "go to" imperial, this is more expensive and special, lighter in color and with less aftertaste, but so drinkable!

Lightly colored, a pale fawn hue. Filtered with such purity that, were you to fill the ocean with this stuff, you’d probably be able to see clear to the bottom. Trips to the beach would also be a lot more interesting.
A rich, sticky aroma, so pungent it’s almost vinegary. Fresh-cut grass, orange blossom and black pepper quickly give way to fruitier notes like passion fruit.
flavor is deceptively sweet. Malt provides a subtle caramel note and simple syrup-style sugars, but most of the saccharine flavors seem to come from the hops, as pine and mint are replaced with tangerine, pineapple and Juicyfruit gum. Very pungent -- you can feel the heaviness of the alcohol and the hop oils.
Medium-bodied, a little heavy with alcohol. You can feel the hop oils on the tongue. mild carbonation.
Too tasty and drinkable for its own good.
