4.01/5 rDev -5.2%
22oz bottle into snifter. Reviewed from notes.
A: Pours golden with a great thick head that lasted nearly the whole beer through. Great sticky lace.
S: Huge notes of citrus and mint on the nose. I get a touch of cat piss Simcoe as well.
T: More cat urine mixed with pine and bitter citrus rind. Malt is barely noticeable but adds some balancing sweetness. The finish is leafy and green tasting with fresh hops and the aftertaste is lingering and bitter.
M: Medium-full body, bubbly carbonation, drinks well.
O: I can definitely see why people love this, it’s a great balanced and super hoppy beer. It’s just not my favorite hop profile in an ipa.

4.15/5 rDev -1.9%
Served out of a bomber into a Holy Mackerel pint glass while watching the Steelers vs the Cowboys.
A: Beautiful clear golden, orange with a great rocky, two finger head.
S: Mostly pine but there is some bright grapefruit zest to back it up
T&M: Somewhat thick, oily body that coats the back of the tongue thoroughly. Nowhere near as drying as most of the IPAs I've had(which is a good thing). Taste follows the nose but with a hint of bready malt coming in. Pine is still the forefront with some clean citrus notes.
O: A very clean, well made and deserving brew. This is exactly as it has been named. Just Outstanding!

Poured from a 22oz Bomber into a Sierra Nevada Tumbler Pint Glass.
Smells like american hops, and I love it.
Pours a Clear Light Amber with half finger head.
This beer is just like the name says, Just Outstanding. It is easily one of my favorite beers, and a top 3 IPA for sure, it is fantastic. The citrusy hops present a very nice bitterness without tasting skunky or overly bitter. It is smooth and tasty all the time. I wish they had a larger distro area.
