Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: klimoja on 01-14-2014

This intense and assertive double IPA is a benchmark for the style. A clean malt backbone supports an intense array of fruity, citrusy, and piney hop notes. Brewed with almost 5 pounds per barrel of hops, this American ale showcases every part of the flavor spectrum one would expect from hops grown in the USA. Finishing with an intense bitterness, this beer pairs great with buffalo wings and classic bar food.

Excellent. A near perfect example of a double IPA. A tangy front with a great grease fruit nose that follows through to the finish, which lingers subtally and well. Pours nice with a quickly dissipating head and a balanced carbonation. If you haven't heard of Free Will before (like me) this beer is going to put them on the map . (330 characters)

I sat down at a bar stool to drink this beer. This is the optimal position to enjoy this high quality adult beverage. I first ordered for my female friend, because women should be served first. After she was served another woman was waiting for be served so I let her go first. Another woman appeared as she was waiting. In total 7 women were served before me, but I am a modern gentleman so I had no problem waiting. Let me tell you, this beer was worth the wait. I tip my fedora to Free Will Brewing company. The only thing that would have gone better is if I had a bag of Cool Ranch Doritos to go with it.

I don't like IPAs:

Pours thick like vodka that's been in the freezer into a wine glass. Looks like cloudy honey with a little carbonation. A small lacy head leaves traces. Hoppy aroma. At first sip I'm a believer. Up front creamy mouthfeel with grapefruit hop bitterness suspended in viscosity not offending, not harsh but welcoming frequent sips.No alcohol detected at all. (Be careful)Finishes clean I think I heard 200 Ibu. ok you've made the most sublime heaven sent liquid ever tasted.
Very impressed Free Will. (520 characters)

This is just from memory, as I had it as a sample at the brewery. For a free tasting, the pour was a solid 4 oz. Not bad if you ask me.

They claim 200+ IBUs and this beer was dank.. I mean DANK. The hops were so rich with flavor, but not super bitter. I need to get a small fill of this next time I'm in the area. (315 characters)
