A solid IPA! The simcoe hops may be the most flavorful in my opinion. This is a really nice West Coast style beer. The hops are up front and the beer packs a nice punch at 9% ABV. The hoppiness is present and spicy. The overall appeal to me is the bite of the hops. This is a must try!

Heavy and decently hoppy, but a little hard to swallow.

I'm not sure what to make of this beer, it's full bodied, not too piney, not citrusy at all...I'd say it's worth another visit

A - Pours a cloudy burnt orange with nice lacing and head retention

S - Layers of citrus hops, passion fruit, resinous, piney.

T - Huge bouquet of citrus hops, floral, malt balances out, but overpowered by a big resinous and bitter finish.

O - Really solid DIPA - I really like this brew and would try it again.
