This is a world-class brew that's sure to please and excite any true IPA lover. It's brewed with a blend of 15 different domestic and imported varieties of hops that are added to the beer every 15 minutes. The result is a complex and flavorful selection, with layers of varying degrees of hop influence, from juicy orange, apricot and tropical fruit notes to floral hop aromas and even slightly sticky resinous flavors on the palate. The mouthfeel is robust and full, with a solid sweet-malt core that grounds all of the hoppy characteristics and ample carbonation that keeps the palate from feeling too heavy or cloying. A pleasant astringency holds on long through the finish.
