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.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured into becker pint glass. Clear yellow-gold with lots of carbonation and a thick fizzy white head that fades a bit into a thick puck of foam. Smell is lots of floral and citrusy hops. Lots of lacing on the glass after my first sip; taste is clean malts, not quite sweet, with some citrusy hop flavors and tons of bitterness over the slight sticky malt aftertaste. A great and unique IPA, worth trying for anyone who loves hoppy beers.
