Poured from a 12 oz bottle to a pint glass. the liquid is a dark caramel, with nice carbonation. The head is 2 fingers light tan, Fades to some lace.

The smell is quite good, mostly typical IPA, but with a little evidence of malty goodness in the mix.

The Taste follow, the piney hops are complemented by a malt that tries to hold it's own, but the bitter and slightly dry hops win the battle.

The mouthfeel is good , nice body, good carbonation. All in all pleasing to the palette.

The drink ability is good as I might buy this again. Prosit MK

12oz bottle. Pours orange/amber. with a nice long lasting offwhite head. Aroma of floral hops and some citrus notes. Taste is bitter spicy floral hops. Palate is full body with good carbonation. Hops dominate with a slight maltiness at the end as it warms up. Overall a nicely balanced IPA.

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.
