My favorite double IPA. Great balance of flavor between malt and hops. Aroma is nectar like and doesn't flood the senses. Awesome sweet finish that doesn't leave any bitterness. Extremely drinkable, however packs a swift punch. Best to drink after a Blind Pig.

YES THIS BEER IS THAT GOOD! Don't let the light color full you. This beer packs a ton of flavor. Great balance of malts and hops! Nice caramel undertones. Fantastic mouth feel. Very smooth finish which makes this a very drinkable beer! Beware at 8.00% ABV it sneaks up on you. Thank you Craft Ale House in Limerick, PA for having this on tap!
