4.31/5 rDev +4.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4
Nice, two-finger off-white firm head. Brew is a hazy orange. Excellent retention and nice lacing.
Massive citrus and tropical fruit hop aroma, as well as a little flatter, earthy hop note. Ruby red grapefruit, pepper, a little tannin, tobacco, mango. Some light caramel malt backbone. Smells delicious.
Wow! This is truly a can of hop juice. Incredibly sweet, focused on tropical fruit with a minor in citrus. Huge wave of bitterness is really hidden behind the massive amount of flavoring hops. Malt backbone is present, but very much in the background.
Not particularly lively; not much sting, and rather syrupy. Not very balanced (it isn't supposed to be). Noticeable alcohol burn on the back-end. Still very drinkable.
This is an exceptionally potent TIPA, and a beer well-deserving of the moniker. If you're a hop-head, you should try it out. It reminds me of a supercharged Jai Alai.

3.7/5 rDev -10.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75
Pours a slightly haze golden color with a huge pillow pure white head. The head slowly settles leaving amazing lacing on the glass.
The aroma is of fresh juicy hops, slightly buddy. Good grapefruit hop twang, perhaps some pineapple. Light grass.
The malt is big and sweet. Honey malt, sugary, apricot jam and a touch of green apple. The hop flavor is not nearly as good as the nose. The hops are citrusy, mainly orange but there is some grapefruit. A bit spicy. Seems malt heavy but not grossly sweet.
Moderate to full bodied with enough prickly carbonation to keep it drinkable. Its a bit slick and sticky. Quite sweet on the palate but enough hop bitterness to keep it from being cloying. It walks a fine line though. ABV is noticable.
A big DIPA and definitely on the sweet side. There is a good hop pairing so its not gross. I would like this to be a bit drier and less sweet.
