If this ain't becoming one of my favorite breweries in the world. . .

Big orange pour, looks great, perfect 1.5 finger head gets all clumpy. Aroma was so great, as close to perfect as one can get, amarillo, maybe summit and simcoe as well throughout. Big pine and citrus all over the place, nose, palate etc. . ..

Same with the taste, on par with anything from the all time greats just about. Hid the alcohol extremely well. Was so refreshing every drink, I found myself quite under the influence after this one. Chased it with a Pliny. Would trade Pliny for this since its almost twice as expensive. I really loved this beer, the keg of it was crushed at Hopfest, just as good if not better than the bottle version.

Taken from notes on 3.11.11

22oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

I love the hidden skull on the playing card.

A - Pours a slightly reddish-orange with a thick 2-finger creamy head.

S - Smells of piney hops and grass.

T - Pine up front with a nice citrusy finish and after taste.

D - Nice bitterness and ver creamy and smooth.

O - Loved it!

I don't usually drink "Organic" beers but this one does not dissapoint. Initial full citrus hop flavors from Cascade hops. Aromatic with bitter kick from the Amarillo. 100+ IBUs. Complex mouthfeel and aftertaste. very full on the flavor scale. NO alcohol burn but truly a Imperial IPA at 9%. Overall very pleasing clean and full.

Serving type: on-tap
