Whoa! Serious hop punch with this one. Loads of tropical fruit and citrus hop in both the nose and taste. Where this IPA excels is in the back end - malt sweetness provides the perfect balance to the resinous aftertaste. This is a superior IPA. Get it if you can!

One of my all time favorites. One of the first elite tier ipas I had outside of the west coast. When they showed up at the Bistro ipa festivals, it was on.

Nice light body, golden in color, soft 1/4" white head. The aroma popped of amarillo hops I would guess. Very impressive.

The taste is such a light and dry body of toasted pale malts and 2 row. The hops burst all over it, prolly around 60 ibus, but so crushable. It has a little bit of everything hop flavor wise in the mouthfeel, pineapple, pine, tangerine, sage, melon. Hides abv very well.
