Just like all the other IPAS

Everyone told me this was the best, the "One and Only"

the Holy Grail of Beer.

Well its Classic, like Buddy Rich's "Johnny one Note"

This is one of my favorites of all time,

A- Nice golden amber glow to it, with a white head that goes away pretty quick.

S- There is an amazing floral mix going on here, so many delicate an unabrasive sents here. I would say it is a very refined hop bomb.

T- Same a the smell, tons of thing going on here. As above it is very refined and delivers tons of hop flavors without being to harsh. Everytime i have this i think it pretty good but then try to follow it with another DIPA and you will realize just how good this is.

M- Good, i like a little more malt thickness that only pliny the younger can delivery.

D- WOW, The wife and i spend 5 hours at the brewpub and i think we had 15 of these (cannot remember the exact number). I could drink this everyday.

If you have the change to try this you will not be disappointed, there are bigger hop bombs out there but i have yet to find another DIPA that can delivery so much without giving up on drinkability or something.

I will be trying a fresh FFF Dreadnaught DIPA tonight and if anything has a chance to come close this will be it!! We will see!!
