From the moment the glass was placed in front of me, I could smell the hops. Some Centenniel but also some tropical fruity hops (Simcoe? Nelson Sauvin?) The beer was oh-so-smooth, and the high ABV was very well hidden. An incredibly easy drinking DIPA. So much hoppiness, but not overly bitter. A lovely, tropical fruity plus citrusy hoppy flavor and aroma. Very enjoyable.
Not all craft beers live up to expectations or hype these days, but I am happy to say that this one does. Wow, oh so good.
Get this beer if you can. Highly recommended!
