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

Massive full hop beer. Forest aromas. Fantastically balanced then boom the danky hops! Piney and dry taste. Full body. Serious resin on this. Great beer.

For those that like hop bombs!

Good beer, Golden Amber color. Piney, a little bready malt, with a grapefruit bitterness on the taste. I get pretty much the same on the nose. Although I like this beer I'd much rather be drinking Nelson.
