Notes/Commercial Description:
This brew uses several varieties and multiple hop additions to the kettle as well as a large "hop back" to give the bitterness and aroma a start. Plenty of dry hops finish it off and give a big hop bouquet.

Fresh grassy hops and lightly toasted bread malt. Elegant taste with little bitterness, ironic given its marketing on the bottle that it was hopped extravagantly at every conceivable opportunity. This is world class, at the very pinnacle of all hoppy beers.
