Bend Brewing Hophead Imperial IPA

"Soft aroma; dank, sweaty, Szechuan-peppery notes partly overtake tropical-citrus. Easily likeable flavor makes up for it—round, crackery-malty, juicy—with firm bitterness that plays well with alcohol, lingering as zesty resin. Danker, rougher aspects in hop flavors contained by nice malt blanket."
