A West Coast Double IPA 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 8%ABV

Draft. Pours a clear light Amber color with an off white head. Aroma is nice tropical fruits, piney, juicy. Flavor has a nice juiciness to it, but also a moderate bitterness. Slight bitterness in the finish. Good, but not quite a top 50 for me.

Loads of orange and light resin maybe a little onion taste as well. Really clean double IPA. It’s a really pure balance that it’s not overly hoppy or gritty as some similar beers are. Love it could dunk this all day.

2015 bottle. Pours clear pale golden color with small head. Aroma of exotic fruits, caramel, hops, pine needles and some resin. Flavor of fruits, resin, mild toffee, caramel and some piney hops. Well balanced with a strong, complex hop bite but the bitterness doesn't lay on the tongue. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Big and rich and not the band. Lots and lots of hops. Resiney, pine, some fruits, alcohols. Not too hot. A fine example of the style of double ipa. Really good tip toeing the line of being really really good. I will finish my glass now.
