IPA's do not get much better. It's hoppy, but at the description indicates, the hint of malt sweetness bring a superb balance to the beer. Absolutely delicious

Bottled 11.17, enjoyed on 12/7.


Golden/clear, soapy head dissipate quickly, smells hoppy, piney, tastes fresh, very hoppy, a little malty sweet way in the background, well balanced and nice bitterness that lingers forever in a good way. Very good double IPA.

16oz bottle into pint glass.

Dark straw yellow, with small head and lots of sticky lacing. Pretty clear.
Smells of citrus and grapefruit.
Taste is similar to nose but with a bit of sweetness on the finish. Super drinkable.
Light carnbination and pretty light mouth feel.
Amazing IPA

Wow. Beautiful beer. Amazing aroma. Taste is citrus bitterness offset by a little malt sweetness. Heavy smooth mouthfeel. Can't get better than this. Amazingly drinkable.

Absolutely gorgeous pour. Hazy yellowish gold with ample sticky white foam. The lacing is as good as it gets. The nose is a little more subdued than I expected. Still very nice and complex with pine, citrus, grass, mango, bready sweetness. The taste is more straightforward, pine, resin, balanced well with malt flavor. The mouthfeel is medium, low-moderate carb, and extremely smooth. Balanced with a slightly dry finish. Absolutely an elite IPA.
