4.25/5  rDev +7.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured into a New Belgium snifter

A - Beautiful transparent amber, half finger off white head and some decent lacing

S - Huge hop and huge malt. Slightly sweet malt, huge sapling hop, citrus fruit, big floral, pine and something in this maybe more than one thing is toasted, roasted or something along those lines

T - So bitter up front, hops, citrus hops, floral hops and hops, hops hops. A bit of resin. Nice balanced malty backbone, toasted, earthy and bitter through and though

M - Weed and resin! Puckers the whole mouth with glorious bitterness and a bit of sweet at the end. Sticky and lingers for a long while

D - This is not your average IPA. This is a hop and bitterness beast. Amazing smells and tastes, but if you are frightened of bitters, stay away. If you are like me, enjoy

Final thought - If you like hops, bitterness and weed, this IPA is for you

3.69/5  rDev -6.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Light copper color, good perlage, good foam, creamy.
In the smell a good fresh hop. But easy and pleasant, not too overwhelming. Tangerine, lightly resinous.
More intense taste, citric and resinous, quite bitter. Pleasant.
Relatively light body. Easily drinkable.
In the aftertaste the citrussy note dominates.

3.83/5  rDev -3.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours from the can a hazy orange with a nice white head that leaves a bit of lacing. Smells of pine and citrus, with maybe a touch of malt. The aroma follows the taste with hop-forward pine, grapefruit and a bit of sweetness. The malt does a nice job of moderating the hops without overwhelming them. Medium mouth with lots of aftertaste. I can't believe it's taken me so long to try this one. It's a very good IPA.
