Floral hops presence without a harsh astringent bite. This beer would have Elliot Ness spinning in his grave: quality ingredients, just the right amount of hops, and a deep malt flavor anchoring everything. I can imagine this being served at the hottest Capone-backed clubs on the North side of Chicago with live Jazz accompaniment. A prototypical West coast IPA in the best way possible.
