Come to daddy! I like a good IPA, but I love a great IPA. This is an incredible balancing of delishioso hops... My mouth want s more!!! Fight the crowds to get to this IPA! Centennial, Kent Golding, and Cascade hops are some of my favorites and Wedge has found a way to balance them all together!

Poured on-tap at the brewery and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a hazy, orange-copper coloring, with a halo of white head. Nose of caramel and tropical fruit sweetness, with a subtle hops bitterness. Flavors are roasted caramel forward, with a wet hops resinous character to follow. Dank and resinous throughout, with a sugary and darkly sweet aftertaste. The body is slightly dry and slick, with a tangy sweet and peppery hopped finish. Very solid and very balanced.
