An outstanding example of a classic American IPA. It’s ferociously hop-forward with flavours of citrus fruit, pine and a tantalising floral character. These bold US hops also deliver a biting bitterness that is balanced with just a hint of sweetness and caramel from the malt, which all leads to a moreish dry finish.
