4.5/5 rDev +7.7%
A: dark amber to orange nice two finger head leaves several layers of lacing on the glass transparent
S: danky citrusy with a little bit of cheese at the end also ends with boozy notes
T: starts very bitter (duh) citrusy earthy ends very cleanly not a strong after taste
M: full but not too thick you could drink this on a hot day
O: surprisingly light and crisp for what it is. probably more drinkable than torpedo this is the hoppiest and highest gravity IPA i've had to date, but i would have never guessed it to be so if i was drinking it blind. surprisingly drinkable, would be the best IPA on the market if it came in six's instead of quads

4.12/5 rDev -1.4%
Copper color. Excellent balance between malt and hops. Hops were not quite as potent as I expected but they may have faded as this bottle is a touch over 60 days old. Slight alcohol burn pokes through but not enough to be annoying.
I’ll be looking for this next year early in the summer so I can get a full sense of the hop profile.
