The hopping is pure starglow energy, with Chinook to bitter and late and dry additions of Citra and Amarillo.  

8.2% ABV

Clear gold in color with a light, candy fruit nose similar to a tropical Lifesaver.  Bitter, but not overly so.  Deceptively light for an 8+% beer: very drinkable.  Seamless and balanced: fruit and bitterness meld well together.  We tried this beer on draft at NOLA on Tap in September last year and really liked it.  We are convinced that the tap version was fruitier, though.  This is still a top notch IPA even at 8.2%.

Would we have it again?  Yes

Would we get a 6-pack?  Yes
