It’s also precisely what I like in a hophammer IPA — it bludgeons the drinker about the palate with hops, has an aftertaste measured in minutes, and doesn’t ruin the effect with anything extraneous.

What an awesome way of describing a really good IPA. He's reviewing Moylan’s Hopsickle Imperial Ale out of Novato, CA. He also talks about two others but this one is the one that really makes me want to run out and buy a six-pack.
Of course, since I live in Pennsylvania, the moronic liquor laws enforced by the PLCB
mean that, if it's available, I'll have to buy it by the case as I doubt it's popular enough for a restaurant to stock it in six-packs. Thanks PLCB - you still suck.
