Love this beer, it was first released only on draft years ago, then in Bombers, now in 12oz six packs( yes!!!) one of my favorite double IPA's , 10% AVB do not taste, but it is the hops, Crystal hops, less acidity, so it is less bitter, so smooth, but big and hoppy, with citrus and tropical notes, my kind of double IPA, "Sculpin" on crack, Outstanding!!!

This is an amazing beer. Comparable to Hopslam from Founders. Fierce hops and strong body make you smile!

A bit over the top. The watermelon was to sweet for me and lasted to long . I had hopped for more freshness. Also very intense mid section.
