I love this beer. I didn't realize how much until I searched for double IPA's and Imperial IPA's for the past year. I realized that there are very few that are so hoppy and smooth without a sweet after taste or thickened body.

This is the beer that I have been comparing other to, even Pliny the Elder. There are a few other companies in northern CA that are similar, but not with the same intense hoppy flavor of this San Diego area beer. I wnat to try it on tap.
