Some things don't live up to the hype. This is does. American Double IPA. Saying that the hops are complex would be saying that a sequoia is big. A massive understatement. Long finish, and at 8% goes down way too easy.

So rich. Very little hop bitterness for the extreme level of said hops. I could only drink one of these.

Impeccably balanced. Complex, with aromas of pine, citrus, green tea leaf and straw. Appropriately bitter and not overly heavy or sweet. Finishes clean.

Lots of pine and bitter citrus. Very well balanced. Great beer, but not the best in the world, not even close.

Shared with some of the best folks in the biz. As good as they say and a good pairing with steak hash as lunch.
