IBUs: 113 (I see what they did there)
Price: $10.99 (64 oz growler)
Their Take: A big, flavorful IPA for all the hopheads out there, brewed with British Pale and Crystal malts, and hopped with Centennial, Cascade, German Northern Brewer, and UK East Kent Goldings. Bold and spicy.
Delicious. Absolutely delicious. If you like IPA’s, this is a beer for you. It’s heavy and full in the mouth, yet remains crisp and doesn’t overwhelm. The aroma is pure hops, and they really nailed it with their mix. I do think the Centennial takes the lead on this beer, but that’s fine by me, as I’ve become a big fan of that particular hop. After a drink, the flavor lingers but doesn’t turn overly bitter despite the high IBUs, and left me looking forward to my next sip. It really is a fine balance to strike, and I thoroughly enjoyed this beer. It’s one of the better IPA’s I’ve had recently, and I definitely recommend picking this one up if you come across it.
