Super Cluster Ale

Lagunitas Brewing (Petaluma, CA)
"Super Cluster is a Citra-Hopped Mega Ale of intergalactic proportions. Everything we've learned about making hop-forward beer: Pale, cold, alcoholic, and bitter."

Double IPA's are probably what Lagunitas does best and this is one of the best of these.
Complex and bitter. lots of herb and pine on the nose. The taste delivers a sharp initial bite of the pine but gives way to tropical, citrusy fruitiness. There might even be a hint of sweetness in there but the bitterness is dominant.
I like this beer ... a lot.

ABV 8%, IBU 60
