A nearly white head sits on top of a dark amber beer. The head dies down quickly, leaving a good ring. The beer laces up rather well too.

Pine, grapefruit and a floral aroma all speak of a strong hop presence.

Grain with a little sweetness opens this one up. Floral hops transition to grapefruit, which in turn moves on to pine. Interesting progression. A little spicy.

This one is good and sticky. Medium bodied. Really leaves a good residue as it passes.

Poured from a can into a Goose Island tulip. No sooner was the can open that I immediately got a hit of dank, resiny hops. In appearance the beer is burnt orange, hazy, and sports a thin head. The nose is very assertive. Lots of pine, grapefruit, and hemp-like aromas.

Medium-firm feel with an aggressive, hoppy flavor. Some bready notes and marmalade-like flavors greet you first, and then at mid-palate a big rush of grapefruit and lemon runs roughshod over your palate. The feel is slick and oily and the beer coats your mouth with all that great hoppy bitterness. The finish is lasting and that nice grapefruit flavor lingers.

This beer is definitely not for those with an aversion to hops. It's like drinking liquid potpourri. Very fragrant and assertive on the palate. I enjoyed it a lot, but tend to favor IPAs with more of a citrus fruit character. Still, very glad I bought a 6-pack of these.

12 ounce can into tulip glass, no canning date. Pours moderately hazy orange amber color with a 2 finger dense off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of big tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple, mango, lemon zest, orange zest/rind, floral, grass, pine, caramel, bread, and floral earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good complexity of hop notes with moderate malt balance; and good strength. Taste of big grapefruit, orange zest/rind, tangerine, pineapple, mango, lemon zest, floral, grass, pine, caramel, bread, and floral earthiness. Good amount of pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, citrus zest, pineapple, mango, floral, grass, pine, caramel, and floral earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity of hop flavors; with a nice crisp malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a lightly creamy, crisp, and sticky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent IPA. All around great complexity and balance of crisp hop flavors and moderate malt presence; and very smooth to drink for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.
