Best IPA I have ever had, hands down, bar none.

Finally, and fantastic. But not any better than some great hoppy beers we can actually get on the east coast. Bottle, Mollie & Clay's, Jan 2016.

A good champagne of an ipa. Complex and fruity but dry. profile - January 11, 2016
The finestIPA I have ever sampled. The flavor gets more complex the further into the sip you get and then finishes very crisp and smooth. 3.27.16 Having a bottle that was bottled on 3.15.16. Just as delicious as I remember.

I can't believe - preferred over Heady Topper

Nice piney IPA but limit consumption to two. The third will cost you.

Damn good. A lighter and fruitier version of an IPA. I think there are similarities to Heady, but much lighter hops and less alcohol taste even though it is an 8%. Lower carbonation surprisingly. Worth putting effort into finding.
