COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Enter, if you will, all the glorious aromatic complexity of the hop. This big, bold IPA’s intense multi-hop kick gets a subtle dose of restraint from select Crystal and Carastan malts. For discriminating hop heads.

Bottle @ home shared with Dutchdrebus, Joes and Martinus at weekly tasting. Clear dark orange color, small white head. Smell malts, hops, lightly resin, mango. Taste malts, hops, resin, bitter, spruce. Oh lovely bitter spruce-resinous finish. Medium to full body, medium carbonation. Nice, but how much better would it have been when it was really fresh!? Still, very nice!
