COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is a true West Coast-style Double IPA made with huge amounts of hops - both in the kettle for flavor and later in the torpedo to impart a massive hop aroma. The light malt body and dry finish hide the power in this immensely drinkable hop-bomb.

Listed as 9.1% abv and 77 IBU at Mills River. Pours a clear golden orange on tap with fluffy white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma and taste of big west coast hoppiness, citrus and pine, but a nice caramel and pale malt backbone. Moderate bitterness, booze well hidden, a solid double IPA.
