With an obnoxious IBU (International Bittering Unit) count of 120, coated by a huge, creamy, caramel-malt body and spiced by some hard-hitting US West coast hops (Mosaic, Centennial, Simcoe and Columbus), this is a big boy in a big can, but you’ll be surprised how easily it goes down.
It is big, fruity, citrusy, juicy, bitter and malty. It was undoubtedly an IIPA, and while I’d sampled plenty of IIPAs previously, what made this one stand out for me was the balance. All the components, while quite monstrous in quantity, all sat in beautiful harmony with each other.
An absolutely sensational beer !!
