IPA with a persistent and creamy foam. The Aroma is piney and citrus, thanks to the Chinook hops, with a malty backbone for the addition of CaraMunich I and Vienna malts. A beer with a good body, which first has a sweet taste that supports the massive hop aroma that fades into a bitter finish.
A perfect example of West Coast IPA with Californian hops!
