Notes / Commercial Description:
This gold colored West Coast style Double India Pale Ale has an intense hop nose, with aromas mainly of citrus. The high hop character dominates this IPA’s flavor profile. Made with American long grain rice, it is quite difficult to make but the rice contributes to this beer’s crisp aftertaste.

Hops seem to skew more floral to me than pine or citrus. The malt at play is also a unique backdrop. I'd love to side by side this with Bruery's Humulus Lager. The mouthfeel is what really stands out here - a bit of a lager / ale hybrid feel.

Light citrus flavours, a bit tangy. Very light bodied for the abv. Delicate, if a beer if this strength can be so! A sweetness accompanies the bitter.

Incredible beer that I just so happen to live within a twenty minute drive of, I sure wish they bottled this stuff. Smells very much like a west coast ipa with a nice malt finish and citrusy hops. One of the best double ipas I have ever had and honestly only Sip of Sunshine tops this. Heady Topper is not anywhere near this one. Incredible.
