look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5
Poured from 22oz bottle into Nonic. Tasted several times from various taps in the Portland area.
This is basically an amped up version of Total Domination. More hops, more alcohol, more body, more more more!!! (Do I feel a Billy Idol song coming on?)
A - Typical yet quality IPA appearance, good straw-gold hue with some haze, a nice head and decently persistent lace.
S - Richly aromatic with lots of fresh hops and spice, some hints of citrus and pine.
T - Lots more of the citrus, hops, and spice.
M - Here is where this beer really differs from Total Domination. This is massive, structured, and intense with a soft character to the tannins that prevent this from being way too astringent.
D - It just calls you back for more. This is such a massive IPA, yet balanced and complex. The texture and alcohol are so perfectly matched that it doesn't seem to be over 8%.

4.06/5 rDev +1%

Poured from bottle into rocks type glass thing in my hotel room.
Nice thick-ish head sits atop for a while and laces nicely. Clear, just shy of amber coloration. Aroma leans to the tropical side, but some resinous tones are there as well. Taste starts off really malty, but bitterness isn't far behind. This is a pretty bitter beer that needs the strong malt backbone to bring it through. Mouthfeel consists of good but not too much carbonation with a thick, chewy, looong finish. Satisfying and even though you know with the assertive malt that it's going to be high gravity and even with the aggressive hopping, it comes across smooth and drinkable.
