brew4all (103) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - DEC 23, 2007
Big IPA with loads of hops and bitter citrus. Very full and lingering with that grapefruit finish. Get the cheese curds to go with the brew, they go together well.

An awesome IIPA. Huge floral hop aroma and flavor. Palate is sweet with a potent bitterness to balance it out. Alcohol is well hidden. Good stuff.

Growler. Pours a hazy, orangey gold with a slight head. Nose is thick with malt and resin, some light grapefruit. Flavor is very full bodied, very malty with accompanying bitterness and resin. Ciitrus tones are well into the background as is the sweetness. This is one that the malts win, but none the less very tasty.
