A thick, foamy, large-bubbled head, on top of a slightly copperish, slightly cloudy beer.

Aroma is definitely hops. Bitter and flowery. No doubt that this is an IPA.

And the taste confirms it. Wow, so that's what hops taste like. Crisp, sharp, slightly sour, and without the expected malt accompaniment (as found in HopDevil, 60 and 90 minute Dogfish Head, Stone Ruination, etc.). I believe this beer is even hoppier than those so often touted as extraordinarily hoppy, because the hops are not escorted by malt; they burst into your mouth like cowboys into a dance hall, looking for your tastebuds and not feeling particularly subtle about their intentions.

You want to show someone a truly hoppy IPA? You could do far worse than this.
