Very great beer. I can see why it is rated so well. Everything you want in a IPA. Great nose, terrific citrus flavored. Very floral. Love this beer. The best part of this beer is the actual taste. Some beers like zombie dust have that over the top great nose that you could never match as far as flavor. But this is a tasty one.

Poured into a Kern River shaker pint (currently their only style of glassware available). This was one attractive beer: cloudy apricot-orange color with an inch or so of thick, foamy, white head that retained strongly, coating the glass with lacing. Nice aroma of citrus zest and underripe pineapple, for a fresh bottle, it wasn't really exploding with aroma as I had hoped, but it was still nice. The taste was good, nothing mind-blowing, pretty much average on the scale of IPAs or DIPAs. Good burst of hops, more bitter than fresh and juicy, citrus rind, underripe pineapple, herbal notes, grassy notes, bready malt base. Good, but nothing special or unique really. Smooth mouthfeel for a double, with just about no alcohol burn at all, though a little graininess lingered in the aftertaste. With all the hype this beer gets, I really expected something different, but it was really just a basic IPA, and offered nothing more than a typical local option. Still good, of course, just wackily overrated.
