I more than enjoyed walking into Chumley's in Lafayette to see this hop monster on tap. I strolled up to the bar and immediately ordered one. It poured a deep orange with a 2 finger white head. Aroma is intensely hoppy, a nice citrus hoppiness. Taste was more of the same, but there is also a substantial malt backbone to back up the hops. Taste lingers on the tongue for awhile. Mouthfeel is nice and thick. This is a very solid and respectable beer. Great for when you need a hop fix.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: Clear orange witha huge off-white head that recedes slowly and leaves chunks of foam on the glass.

S: Strong hop aromas: grapefruit and pine dominate.

T: Grapefruit and pine with just a bit of caramel malt background.

M: Creamy and slightly oily with a refreshing citrus finish.

D: This is a great beer for hop heads. Not a favorite style of mine but it is well done.

look: 4.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

A - Clear red orange body with two finger for frothy tan head and excellent lacing

S - A little pine and a little citrus. I wouldn't call this a IPA smell and is kind of faint

T - Nice mix of flavor and bitter hops with a little spice and citrus in the back

M - Medium body with medium carbonation

D - Easy to drink and kind of enjoyable but nothing really special
