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.

Can. I can't find a date on it. Pours a sightly hazy light orange color with decent head. Aroma is peach and pine. Flavor is fairly bitter with a strong orange and grapefruit character. This beer is fantastic. I'd love to try this on draft or super fresh in cans.
