Amazing beer. My favorite of all time. No matter what I try I keep coming back for more. Wasn't in love at first, but it grew on me and continues to do so. Very floral and fruity with multiple layers of complexity. Perfect hop bitterness lingers just long enough. Just enough malt to balance the powerful hops. Perfect head which adheres to the glass to remind you it is disappearing by the sip. I buy it by the case whenever I can find it! I've tried many beers that are rated higher on this site, but none come close to the perfection of this beer for me. This beer has an unspeakable quality about it that is hard to describe but that I grow to appreciate more and more each year. I would buy the company if I could!

Amber color with lots of thick mushroom head with a good retention.
Delicious aroma of sweet slightly toasted malts, grapefruits and resin.
Bitter and citric upfront flavor of grapefruits with pine and resin notes. Very dry, even astringent, and an eternal bitter aftertaste. This will make you sneeze or have your nose running.
Medium body with perfect carbonation. Alcohol of 6.9% ABV is a coward against its power.
This is a bold IPA, which does not overcomplicate. It is assertive, delivers what has promised, and it is reasonably balanced given its extremes flavors. Hard to beat it.
