tasting notes

A variation of our Double IPA made with an expressive Belgian yeast. Dank, herbal hops lead, a clear grapefruit notes cuts through and a complex pear, floral, and white pepper opens up beneath. Light grainy malt, crisp bitterness, high carbonation and a dry finish. This beer continues to unfold sip by sip.
