Wow, talk about hops! I realize this is supposed to be an extremely hoppy IPA, but why not just call it a Double IPA? I definitely don’t think this tastes like a regular IPA. If I wanted a Double IPA, or if I were to buy the biggest hop fan a beer, I’d turn to West Coast IPA. When I’m looking for an easy drinking IPA, I’d turn the other way. I was happy with the aroma, but I didn’t really get much of the citrus that was in the aroma in the taste of the beer. I have to say, I wouldn’t buy West Coast for myself, because I think it packs too big of a punch for a during the week beer, but like I said, if your a HUGE IPA fan, then I think you’ll really appreciate this “extravagantly hopped” beer.
