COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
First brewed in 2008 for batch # 3,000. This is our version of a Double India Pale Ale. This year we used almost 900 lbs of English pale malt, and over 40 lbs of hops in a 10 barrel batch. A nice golden color with aromas of pine, citrus and some earthy spicy notes. This is what hop lovers dream about. Get hopped up on the sauce.!

Tap at the brewpub. Pours golden peach/amber with a four finger off-white ringy/clingy head. Huge fresh floral hoppy aroma. Full bodied with creamish carbonation. It’s very hoppy. First I thought resin; then I thought grapefruit. Then it was sort of floral. Definitely sort of hoppy. More than. The malt base is supportive, but fairly obliterated. This will stand up to just about any DIPA. Excellent.
