330 ml bottle poured into a tulip glass. Cloudy orange amber with a truly massive amount of light beige colored head ... Too much, really. It does fall back over time, although a solid five fingers remain. Aroma is more malt than anything, dried fruit (peach, fig) and toasted caramel with a slight citrus or carbolic tang. Unique, this. The hop flavors convey warm, slightly fetid grapefruit, orange, and mandarin, more marmalade than juice or rind, coriander seed and white peppercorn, hints of pear and root beer. Solid graham cracker and caramel malt backbone. Lots of debris floating around, which might be contributing to a vitamin and root cellar-like damp yeastiness. Notably thick body although the assertive carbonation balances this out. Smooth buttery mouth feel and a wonderful dry nutty finish, a little bitter walnut blooming at the end. Although the use of American hops may very well anchor this in the present style designation, this is not a piney or resinous beer and is instead a sweet treat of sorts, with malts and yeast getting center stage while the hops provide a pleasing fruity accent. The slightly rank yeastiness may have skewed my ratings downward.

Man this is the stuff! Poured at a perfect temperature with a massive billowy cream-colored head that settles slowly, with lots of clingy lace and a hazy honey amber color. Aroma is hops Graham mall. Flavor is like aroma just enough sweetness to balance the bitter and the strong carbonic tang. Perfect mall filling body but not over done. Super drinkable beer

A- so, I just wanted to point this out, it says it's brewed with bottom fermenting yeast. It's technically not an IPA, but I digress. Upon pouring, it immediately turns to coarse foam. It pours a hazy amber with lots of floating matter. The massive coarse head fades slowly, leaving random clumps of lacing.

S- really fruity, very sweet malt. Dried fig, vinous.

T- sweet again, vinous, brown sugar, dried fruit. Doesn't really seem like an IPA to me, and as I said previously, it's not.

M- hard to tell the body, it turns to foam immediately on the palate.

O- it's not an IPA in any way, but it's tasty.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

This beer is almost perfect. Although there's a lot hop in it, it doesn't have the sharp edges of many other extra hopped beers.

L: the top is perfect, but the body is a bit cloudy;
S: biscuit, grass and pine;
T: in line with the smell, but completed with a lot lemon, but where sometimes lemon means 'siruppy' this is the real thing;
M: the mouthfeel is maybe the most specific element of this beer and it's perfect: the roundness is in complete harmony with the bitterishnes, the alcohol and the CO2; and the after taste (which is a problem for many extra hopped beers) is perfectly tiny;
O: compliments for this brew!

Poured from a 330ml bottle. Pours a big white head atop an enticing cloudy orange colour. The smell is all Cascade hops: piney, citrusy, inviting. The taste follows suit with a big malty presence to help balance it all out. This drinks like a really good West Coast IPA. The excellent carbonation makes a potentially heavy beer very drinkable.
