Ok DIPA ... drinks well for the ABV but there’s plenty out there less intense than this one that deliver more of what I crave from the style. Ronritter (729) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - MAR 18, 2017

Incredible beer, with an amazing number of uniquely combined taste layers. I was fortunate to snag 3 large bombers (25.6 oz) from the brewery for a very reasonable $10/bomber.
Nowadays I tend to drink beer more for the taste than the buzz, but after a single mid-day 10-oz glass I was feeling the effects of this monster! Calling it a Triple IPA is not an overstatement by any means.
