Notes / Commercial Description:
Did someone ask for hops? Tired of beers that promise a full lupulin experience, but never deliver more than richly malted bitterness? It’s no secret that this is what we excel at. We’ve been brewing world class IPAs for years. Our flagship is the culmination of a decades worth of studying and brewing. Take a step above and acclimate to what an IPA should be.

Mostly-clear dark, syrupy orange-amber color with a thick finger of white head that quickly dissipates but leaves fairly heavy lacing. Big aroma of pine with a mix of orange, pineapple and mango behind. Fruity and hoppy up front, with a wonderful aftertaste of a little tropical fruit and lingering bitterness. Medium-to-heavy bodied with a prickly, oily mouthfeel. Excellent beer.

Damn, this smells like I've got my face in a big pile of hops. Big spicy pine and with underlying apricot. I guess it helps that it was canned yesterday. It's big, dank, and resinous, but still dry and drinkable. I want another. Go find yourself some.

Pours a deep golden Amber color. Aroma is citrus, pine and some maltiness. Flavor pine and resin with a balanced malty backbone. Overall this is nice, has a little bitterness to it but still nice overall,
