Poured into a Burlington Beer Works pint glass.

A well-reviewed highly anticipated IPA.

A: This beer pours smoothly, a dark gold color with a mild head and very resilient lacing. It has tinges of red and brown in its translucent body. A very nice, attractive beer that just shouts its richness and fullness at you.

S: A wonderfully biting hopiness over a thick grapefruit body. Pepper hints are accompanied by an earthy aroma and fresh pine.

T: An extremely thick but smooth beer. The first flavor is a very wonderful hop-intense bite that is followed by a lovely citrus and grapefruit with a hint of green apple. This beer has a nice layered texture with the citrus and fruit notes on top with a nice undercurrent of thick rich hops and a good malty base. There are also some mild hints of herbal flavors and a rose-like nose with some pepper.

M: Rich and thick but smooth with a crisp finish and a very powerful hoppy bite giving a prickly fresh mouthfeel. Extremely well layered.

O: A wonderful IPA, definitely worthy of its huge following. Excited to try more from this brewery. Very rich with huge flavors and tons of intricate layers. Lovely lovely.
