A - Nice looking beer with huge pillows of white head that remain for the duration.

S - Hop Resin, hop oils, citrus, bread dough, yeast and some malts.

T - Smooth drink - nice blend of hops. It hold the 100 IBUs remarkably well, but there is something about the bready flavor that has an off sweetness to it that doesn't hit the mark for me.

O - Very solid and definitely worth a swing.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.25

light amber hazy

big off white frothy three finger head; sticks around for quite awhile; moderate lacing

excellent flavor of pine, resinous almost chewy with tropical undertones and nose

good malt structure but not bready; full mouth feel; balance is on the hop side

very hoppy at 100+ IBUs; bitter but not biting; long aftertaste sticks around and does
some ruination on palate; not filling easy to have too much. alcohol might be understated.

must be a hop lover to enjoy. Centennial, Tomahawk, Citra

A: Hazy golden orange with a white head that was completely gone before it was consumed. Little to no lacing.

S: Big on the hops with grapefruit and pine.

T: Like your sucking on a sap covered green pine cone that was marinated in grapefruit juice. There are some hints of orange and lemon and sweet malts.

M: I was a little worried about the carbonation when the head ran away, but it did not disappoint.
Finish highly bitter with some syrupy sweetness. Took the palate for a joy ride.

O: You better have your PHD in IPA for this one. Stone has pegged the IBUs needle at 100+ we don't know how fast we are going. If you think you can handle it take it for a spin. I enjoyed it.
