COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A few times a year we cut Dan loose to brew whatever he choose. Always handcrafted, the bottle you hold is brewed for the adventurous soul. This is a very limited edition and we make no promises to ever brew this style again. A provocative 85 IBUs reverberates cleanly through this Double IPA. True hop saturation from kettle boil to dry hop cellaring dominates this elegant and lustful sensory enchantment. You hold a deceptively seductive Original Gravity of 19.2 Plato, now 9% ABV following the always 100% natural bottle fermentation. Luscious English Maris Otter malt is the essential heart of this voluptuous double IPA. Surrender is inevitable so enjoy now.

UPDATED: SEP 24, 2011 Bottle @ home. A touch hazy, golden yellow orange appearance with a cream colored head. Quite potent organic, earthy, slightly piney hoppy nose. Moderate to high pine hoppy flavor strength that also has an organic, resiny, grapefruit, earthy, plant-like flavor. Alcohol is hidden well behind the strong hoppy flavor.
