Description
I was swingin' for the fences on this one and I may have swung too hard haha. If you like BIG chewy IPA's this is for you. (I love it) This may even be considered a Double IPA if not for the ABV.

Recipe Details
Tasting Notes Malty on the front, immediately overtaken by a wave of bright, minty bitter hops. Clean, slightly tangy zingy finish makes me keep drinking more and more!!
