We take our already hoppy West-Coast IPA and add more of what people want, more hops! In addition to the 3 kettle additions, we dry hop it in the fermentor 3 separate time at 3 different temperatures. We put over 3 pounds of hops per barrel of beer. After adding all those hops it would be a shame to strain it all back out, so this brew is left unfiltered.

joeneugs (5756) - Livermore, California, USA - FEB 28, 2015
Out of retirement. On draft at Tap 25. It pours a hazy gold color with an off white head. The aroma has a ton of honey with some light herbals and pine. The flavor is thick with sweet honey, herbal and floral hops with some light forest notes. Not bad, but too much sweet honey. Very sweet in fact.

(Draught) Pours a cloudy golden orange body with a small white head. Aroma of hand-full of fresh hops, grain, and earth. Flavor of hops (pine, earth, peppery, herbal, citrus), cereal, and grain with a dry, bitter finish. Certainly for the hop lover!

From a pitcher at the RBSG beer dinner. Pours hazy orange with a small white head. Solid grapefruity and slight astringent aroma. Solid grapefruity flavoured yet with the bitterness downplayed. Solid growing bitter into a dry finish. Hop juice really.
