Notes/Commercial Description:
The saying “less is more” doesn’t apply to West Coast IPA’s. Less is a glass half empty and Tower 20 is a full glass of unrivaled hop character – a Double IPA where more is more. In brewing this hoppy offering, we took the best of Tower 10 IPA and added more. An abundance of high-alpha Centennial hops give T20 its resinous pine-like bitterness, while Oregon-grown Crystals and Chinooks lend zesty grapefruit and tangerine hop flavors. Don’t hoard this hop bomb, drink it fresh and we’ll brew more.

Poured from a 22oz bomber into a shaker pint - No visible dating on the bottle - smells of sweet caramel and tastes much of the same - at the end a little citrus comes in, which kind of reminds me of Juicy Fruit gum... Good head retention and lots of sticky lacing - Not even close to what I want from a DIPA - their Big Barrel DIPA is far superior - truly a disappointment on this one... Who knows, maybe it's an older bottle... Though I'm not likely to try this one again to find out...
