Notes/Commercial Description:
It’s just a helluva shock. Something that gets the adrenalin pumping like a 400 volt shot in a copper bathtub has to be good for the soul. Join the hardcore elite, screw down the throttle and ride. Ride until your lungs bleed and your arms numb. Gun the fucker. Don’t pull back, or slow down until the crazy music starts. Then sit, stunned, wall-eyed, open mouthed, in the realization this mother will drill you with Panzer-like efficiency. And you’ll beg for more.

If you love IPA's... I mean love as in the more Hops the better, then this one does what you need.

It's somewhat cloudy, which I kinda liked because it reminds me of my brews. Smells fantastically hoppy. I'm guessing a lot of Cascade Hops maybe. Very piney. The taste is just the same. All hop and some sweetness actually. Being 9.2% you would think some alcohol flavor would slip through. But if it was there, I didn't catch it, and I've drank it several times.

I'm on the search for another place that sales it in my area. Unfortunately the liquor store I bought from burned down.... All that beer...

4.13/5  rDev +5.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Serving: 355 mL bottle poured into an IPA glass (batch 081, best before 25/03/15)

Appearance: Bright, slightly hazy orange copper. Frothy, lasting head with moderate lacing.

Smell: Pine needles and candied orange. Clean and welcoming.

Taste: Pine and citrus rind against toffee sweetness. Evenly bitter throughout, but not overly so. Only hints of its 9.2%.

Moutfeel: Smooth, almost oily; medium body with low carbonation.

Overall: Full in aroma and taste, while still nicely balanced and restrained.
