Notes / Commercial Description:
A beer brewed in the spirit of experimentation and the celebration of our 3rd anniversary… ! What we did here is we took a whole bunch of Mosaic and Amarillo hops, a classic punch of citrus purveying goodness, and added them to the Julius dry hop. The base beer is exactly the same, but the dry hop is altered tremendously. The result is a beer with all the deliciousness of the base beer with a layer of added citrusy complexity. Like devil Julius or something. A real treat!

Looking at the ratings I would have to say that having a can that was nearly two months old certainly did take away from what others see as a superior beer.

That being said, this was an enjoyable IPA and I would quite like to try it fresher. That might make a difference in my opinion.
