A fruity, citrus-infused IPA from Iron Springs Brewery in nearby Fairfax, California. Piney on the nose, it quickly leads into a brisk and bracing bitterness, full of orange peel, peppery spice, and tons of hops. The fruit character balances things out, but the bitterness does not release its hold easily. The finish is long and lasting, offering more of an orange oil character as it mellows out, making things enticing for continued drinking despite the hefty alcohol level.
