Because drinking alone sucks

An imperial IPA with a generous malt bill and a great combination of bittering and aroma hops. Sweet orange peel complements the passion fruit, melon, lemon, peach, and grapefruit notes imparted by Citra and Amarillo hops. The Hefe yeast imparts an additional banana nose and flavor to create a topical treat.
