Another great IPA from US. Creamy and well carbonated. Tart and lots of candied fruits. Tastes like a sugar candy which goes really well with this brew. The bitterness is quite strong but not overwhelming. Hop flavor is mildly resinous, strong asian honey pomelo, candied ananas and mango.

UPDATED: JAN 12, 2015 Draft at BXL East. Not your average IPA. Caramel notes followed by an almost lemon cookie finish. did you ever think an IPA could be sweet? Well this is a sweet mellow boozy delight that's not harsh but entices you to drink more with every sip. Not your average IPA.
