Description 

A crisp and refreshing IPA exploding with fresh hop character, named for a somewhat forgotten yet amazing hop variety named Crystal. A unique hopping program gives this beer a massive, clean bitterness and fresh hop aroma bursting with hints of citrus and fresh fruit.

This is a very nicely made, light copper-colored IPA. This beer is beautiful to look at, and upon pouring, the head lasts almost forever. Wonderful flavors emerge upon first sip, with a huge explosion of pleasant floral hops blended nicely with malt, fermentation esters and soft alcohol. This is an extremely well-made and well-balanced beer that still showcases the hop characters wonderfully, making you want to drink more and more.
