Thanks to non BA Bob for bringing this north.
A nice looking IPA, but a touch on the dark side with its clear ruby tinted amber body. Nice one finger light tan coloured head formed while transferring from the can to my glass. Mildly carbonated and well laced with fluffy little coulds of lacing that stick to the inside of my glass.
Grapefruit and caramel with underpinnings of toffee and cocoa powder. Ruby red grapefruit juice with its sweet and fruity floral bitterness.
Theres a lot of hops in here, but the malts stand up surprisingly well. Grapefruit morphs into pine then a grassiness appears, opening enough of a window to allow the malts to finally assert themselves and reveal their toasty and mildly nutty character with a good amount of caramel and lesser hints of toffee and cocoa powder.
A medium bodied brew with a substantial hop blast that is backed up by an almost equally muscular malt backbone. Hops resinousness almost obliterates the toasty and nutty qualities of the malts and provide just enough of an edge for the caramel to muscle its way onto the palate, followed by the touch of cocoa powder.
Pretty damn drinkable for its 99IBUs and it medium body. Try it if you like your IPAs or are looking to strip your mouth with tasty hop resins. An all around excellent IPA, from its looks, to its strong hop profile, and its solid and delicious malt bill. Believe the hype!

Poured from a 16 oz. Can
Appearance: A dark amber pour with a reddish tint when I hold it up to the sun. Dang girl this beer is beautiful. I'm blushing or maybe the beer is.
Smell: Piny, dank, sweet. No need to overthink this.
Taste: Furious is a go to. The piney hop bite is balanced nicely with the scottish malts (golden primise). And crazier even is the choice to use a London style yeast strain. Wow, I can't get over how unique this beer is. There are hints of pinneaple, pear, evergreen, bread, and toffee.
Overall: A very unique IPA. I'm very fortunate that I can swing by the store and get this everyday if I wanted to. This beer is not overhyped, try it for yourself.
Serving type: Can.
