Wow, Pow! Just tried this beer from my beer of the month club shipment and this is a biggie hoppy incredible double IPA. More hops than the Easter bunny on Easter! Great mouthfeel, nice 2 finger frothy head retention. Aroma is a bit overwhelming, but makes sense from the high IBU's in this one. From a small brewery in Missouri. A great beer!

Got this beer though the mail. Enjoyed on a hot day mid June, it was perfect. Great look and smell, taste did not let down. Mouth feel was average but overall I really enjoyed this beer.

This was a delicious DIPA! They still kept the hops front and center but put enough malt backbone and fruit flavors behind it to create layers of flavor. This was an awesome DIPA!

Great beer! Love how they just didn't make a hop bomb that tastes like everything else, this double IPA is nicely balanced with some malt and fruit flavors. Crown Valley makes another winner!

Pours a fairy clear orange copper color. White frothy head with good head retention.

Nice citrus smell. Clean, grapefruit, malt smell and not much else.

I like the balance of this beer. Hoppy flavor without being too bitter. A little sweeter and more body than the benchmark IPAs but it just works. Easy to drink while satisfying your senses.

Like all IPAs freshness is key. I luckily live within an hour of the bewery and can get it fresh. I have tried many higher rated iPAs from the bottle and for me this one tops them. Is it the quality of the brew or just the freshness? I wish I could go on tour and sample them all at the top of their game. Either way I highly recommend you try this one if you get an opportunity.
