My son just told me about this one yesterday but he had not tried it. Today at Save On they were raving about a Columbus Brewing triple IPA which I tried, but they also had this on tap. I had a sample and just had to have more so I bought a half growler.

This is a very finely crafted brew. The color is a little dark for an IPA. The head won't quit. It's huge. The aroma is mostly a very tangy hoppy, but it also has a sweetness to it.

Taste is another story. Or the same story. Perfect balance of very hoppy with sweetness, dark, and unique. It is a huge beer that just feels right and unlike any other. The aftertaste is pretty tangy too. It is sitting big on my palate. I will drink another glass with my pizza in a bit. I know it is going to be perfect.

This may be my favorite Great Lakes ever.

Serving type: growler
