This is pretty close to the perfect beer in my opinion.

The bottle itself is classic, i love the simple way the label states its name.

Beautiful golden appearance, with nice head. All of my hop favorites citrus fruity and pine. Love the grapefruit taste and the pleasant bitter range. A truely great DIPA and cant wait to drink more of this hop bomb of a beer
