California, United States

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.00%

Notes / Commercial Description:
So mega-hopped it will take you to hop heaven. We’ve used hops in the boil, more hops in the giant hopback, and added to that, an incredible amount of dry-hopping for that cutting-edge “hop bite.” Once you’ve tasted this unique beer, all others pale in comparison. 1.072 OG Classified IBU

Fresh grassy hops and lightly toasted bread malt. Elegant taste with little bitterness, ironic given its marketing on the bottle that it was hopped extravagantly at every conceivable opportunity. This is world class, at the very pinnacle of all hoppy beers.
