Did someone ask for hops? Tired of beers that promise a full lupulin experience, but never deliver more than richly malted bitterness? It’s no secret that this is what we excel at. We’ve been brewing world class IPAs for years. Our flagship is the culmination of a decades worth of studying and brewing. Take a step above and acclimate to what an IPA should be.

Can pour dark gold with copper hue and large ecru head. Nose resin, pine, sticky, papaya. Taste big bitter bite up front, then mostly dank. Strong bitter mid palate but missing the flavors from the aroma. Some caramel malt late. Lasting bitter finish.

There are no flaws. This is the quintessential IPA. Big, juicy, refreshing

delnoche (505) - Alamogordo, New Mexico, USA - JUN 12, 2015
1pt can poured into a Dogfish Head IPA glass. Golden amber with a tall frothy cap. Aroma is very strong sweet flowery resin. The flavor is all hops up front with some fruity sweetness in the middle. The finish is extremely bitter and long lasting. This is a great beer but definitely not one for a hops noob. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap and cans at various points this past weekend in New Mexico. Pours darkish amber with large white head. Aroma is fresh hops, mostly earthy but some citrus. Tastes very nice, loads of hops all the way through, blend between fresh/bright and earthy varieties. Medium or even low bitterness. Glad I got to crush these all weekend.

Can to glass. Pours a light copper orangish color with an off white head. Aroma is a well balanced tropical fruit, citrus, grapefruit hops, with a caramel malt backbone. Hoppy and malty sweet in the flavor, and not overly bitter. Very nice beer.
