Couldn't believe I've never reviewed this beer. Cloudy golden yellow pour with an off-white two finger head with great retention and lacing. Nicely balanced nose with sweet biscuity malts and equally intense citrusy, resiny, piney, hop notes. The taste definitely leans towards the hops. Huge bitter citrus notes with hints of lemon zest, grapefruit, pine, tangerine, and some subtle caramel malt sweetness to keep it honest. The mouthfeel is totally mouth-puckering with a sharp, bitter, in-your-face hop bite from start to finish. With that said, it's one of the more sessionable hop bombs out there. Overall, this is one of beers I always come back to. It's just an all around solid IPA.

Poured from a 650 ml bottle into a standard pint.

A: Amber hue. Lots of effervescence. Pours about a 2 finger, bubbly white head. Settles into a froth, and has a dry slow disintegration; leaving dry residue in its wake. Sporadic lacing. Head never really dissolved completely. Head renews completely with each pour.

S: Hay and pine.

T: Very hoppy and bitter. Just a bit of sweet tea, woody notes, and peat. Alkaline, pungent, and rubbery.

M: Light and shallow body. The slightest hit of sweetness as it careens onto the palette. Dry, pungent finish. Steely aftertaste which haunts you throughout.

D: Pungent and mouth-puckering, will dictate a more plodding experience.

Atmosphere is really solid. Lots of carbonation, a great head which never really vacates the brew completely, and a bit of sporadic lacing. Nose is a basic combination of fresh hay and pine. Hoppy and bitter, with some sweet and woody notes cleverly settled in. Overall, this is a really good quaff.

Maybe my pallet isn't ready for the IPA since I'm a relatively new beer drinker, but I didn't particularly enjoy this beer. It got a great deal better toward the end, which is why I rated it as average, on taste, but the overwhelming bitterness was tough to get past. I didn't notice much in the way of mouthfeel because of how quickly I swallowed every sip to get past the bitterness. I did enjoy the background flavors though. I believe I would have really enjoyed this beer if it weren't for the bitterness, but I'm pretty sure I could handle it if I just simply wasn't a wimp.
