This is just an amazing beer. Even with all of the hype, I was not disappointed. I'm very impressed.
In a collection of goodie bag beers, this was the most highly anticipated...and the best.
It is a quintessential DIPA. Lots of full hoppy, citrusy aroma and flavor. It had a big enough malt backbone to just balance out the hop forward character.
It was crisp, dry, refreshing, and addictive. I wish I could have had a whole case full, but it's probably best that I didn't (the one bottle disappeared pretty quickly).
This is one of my favorite beer experiences, and it vaulted up my list of favorite beers, even with just the one time.
You need to try it, the hype isn't just hype. There's delicious beer behind it.
