look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Served on-tap into pint glass.

A: A nice rich amber color. Beautiful haziness, I love the way an unfiltered beer looks. Thick head that stays around through whole glass.

S: Strong, pungent hops aroma which I can smell without getting anywhere near the glass. I almost feel like the fresh hops are sitting in front of me. Really strong and amazing.

T: The taste is so incredibly hoppy that it is overwhelming to me. That being said, I cannot fault what is obviously an outstanding beer, because of my naive pallette. The taste is very complex to me even with nothing but hops coming through. Very bitter in the way that you want it to be.

M: This beer feels nice in the mouth. Medium to full body with moderate carbonation.

D: I can see how this can be easily drinkable for someone who wants this much hops in their beer. It definitely wasn't hard to put this one back. For me personally, it's not very drinkable because I think that it might be too much for me at this time. Again, I will not subtract from the quality because of my personal taste.

I am really happy to have been able to try what is so widely regarded as one of he best ipa's out there. I am going to put this on my list to re-review when the time comes.

Serving type: on-tap
