Very Proud to have this as a "Homer"beer!Totally awesome brew from a totally awesome facility!
Golden/Orange clear and beautiful,with a smaller cottontop head and beautiful lacing
Smelled of excellence,nice citrusy,fruity,flowery goodness happening!
taste is as good as it can be for a single IPA, similar to the nose but abitter/smooth thing going on at the same time,a hop head's dream!
mouth is clean and crisp,with an o so pleasant lingering Hoppy aftertaste,very nice!
dinkability is out fuc%in standing, not real heavy and the aftertaste leaves you NEEDING another brew,Totally AWESOME!

best ipa ive ever had - better then the elder, zombiedust, etc... i love it. ive had it on tap and in bottle. i live in pittsburgh, where we have a fatheads, but i say definitely worth the pain to get it. it is 100% over the top and aggressive. not for fair weather ipa fans.

Color is transparent orange, but hazy. Nose is citrusy and great. Taste is citrus, orange peel, grapefruit, pine. This is sweet, but not overly sweet, just right. The mouth is slightly creamy, which tames the citrus astringency just enough to make it perfect. This beer is more like an Imperial than an IPA so I enjoy it in a snifter, and sip on it. Could be the perfect beer. Hoppy, but the hop bite is a soft bite. Awesome. Bottle.
