Hop aroma detected as soon as bottle was opened. Tasted fresh and clean and is everything I look for in and IPA.

Great DIPA, right away reminds me of Dreadnaught. All the normal IPA tastes (Citrus, Pine etc...) Also has a big boozy presence. Maybe a bit too much to keep it from being an elite contender amongst the big dogs of the DIPA world. World class aroma for what that's worth~
