COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a beer that you’ll never forget. We’re setting our standards high on this one. Our goal is to go head to head with the leading DIPA’s and come out on top!
Admin Note: Look for a black label.

Poured into a shaker glass. Colour is very nice, and very clear. Thin white head, with thin lacing on the glass. Flavour is not too bitter, and very clean. Overall a decent IPA that is worth giving a shot.

smells malty and toasted grains with floral hop. looks cookery brown with huge pillowy head. tastes like malty grain cracker toasted toffey and earthy hops. palate is covered in hops and malt. overall nice and hearty and great mouthful .

Pours amber with a lasting white head. Aroma is dank, herbal and chewy w/ high alpha hops apparent. Flavor is decidedly hop/bitter forward but with solid malt to back it up. Finish lingers into clinging bitterness that sticks around for a while. Tastes like good IPA homebrew. Overall this beer is more of a Imperial American Amber Ale, but still has the hops of a DIPA, the fault I find is the hops are a bit rough and unrefined, malt bill is too dark with too much crystal and specialty malts. Otherwise a well crafted IPA. Thanks to Sean in the Bay Area for the kick down!
