I was looking forward to this beer. All I can is that making your beer less accessible does not automatically put it on the scale of Heady Topper. I love supporting local breweries; in fact, I would prefer to drink local. It amazes me that local purveyors already have this on an "invite only" e-mail distribution. Brewed with 3 different hops and balanced by a dry malt characteristic, I'm not feeling the balance at all on this one. It subdues the citrus-like hops that are trying to break through. It finishes peppery, just like their single IPA and I think that it takes from the overall experience. In a market watered down by the next great IPA, this one misses the mark due to its failure to marry the hop/malt profile. It's not a bad beer by any stretch, but being my favorite style, it misses the mark.

Poured a white lacy head...the nose is beautiful...amazing pine grapefruit pineapple with a strong banana peel finish. very smooth slight alchohol finish. Not very bitter and well balanced. I only wish I could get this stuff in a package store!!! This is a must have beer
