Great IIIPA. Ceramic bottle with a stopper...more money than I would be willing to pay for an IPA or IIIPA but I got this as birthday gift and really enjoyed it.
Pours an unfiltered orange/apricot color with a good size white head and lacing. The head and lacing don't last long, probably complements of the 9.2 abv.
Smell is overpowering citrus hops with a little pine hops thrown in. Taste is mostly citrus hops. This beer has a good bite and doesn't soften as you drink it. A hopheads beer from beginning to end.
Mouthfeel is rich with a good hops bite. Drinkability is very good for a hophead. I would be ready for one of these or Avery Maharajah any time!!!
An expensive but very good beer.

Got a growler on the way out of Portland, bring it on the plane !
Light orange, clear IPA. Nice 1/2 inch white foamy head poured into my 10 barrel medium side snifter.
Mild bite from the IPA, nice mild grapefruit, hoppy flavor, very pleasant to drunk, even though it is over 9 %.
Mouthfeel seems 'bout right, a little malty goodness when you 'foam' it up in your mouth.
I would drink this every time at the airport, a nice find there , will probably add it in the cart now, from time to time. Drink it !
Serving type: growler
