Notes/Commercial Description:
An explosion of hops dominate this deep golden ale. Brewed with four varieties of hops & dry hopped with three other hops, the flavor is powerful. Not a harsh bitterness, but a full hop flavor.

Had a sample and a free pint.

Lots of dry hopping going on. Very fruity, great aroma and session-able. A pretty normal amber color for an IPA thats quite hazy and leaves a nice lacing. Bitterness was very managable and wasnt taxing on palate at all. I got some oranges, pineapple, berries, grapefruit ect, not the pacific northwest hops but maybe more new zealand/southern hemisphere hops. I really enjoyed this one though, too bad I cant buy it anywhere.

Very clean yeast character for an unfiltered brew.
