American IPA |  7.00% ABV

Availability: Rotating

Notes/Commercial Description:
A West Coast IPA that features Amarillo and Simcoe hops "in harmony," giving a light, floral aroma. Duet is nicely bitter with the perfect amount of malt concealed behind the hoppy goodness. Immensely drinkable, amazingly light on its feet.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 5

22oz. Bomber $7 from local liquor store

Look: Crystal clear bronze with a really aggressive white head.

Smell: Woah! Huge grapefruit and citrus hops completely envelops the nose!

Taste: Citrus bomb! Huge grapefruit, orange, tangerine, lemon, and clementine notes leasd to a really nice earthy hop mellow that rounds out with a nice malt backbone. Citrus hops linger throughout and long after each sip! A bit like biting into marmalade on toast!

Mouthfeel: At first it's wet and quenching but that quickly dries out like a nice champagne. the 7% ABV is undetectable! Perfect body!

Overall: Wow. Heard great things about this one and boy did it live up. Every aspect really works together. From the citrus hop bomb to the malt balancing act to the superb dry finish that allows the hops to shine through again. In a market filled with IPA's this one is something special. Get it.

Serving type: bottle
