4.8/5 rDev +33.3%
Wow, Pow! Just tried this beer from my beer of the month club shipment and this is a biggie hoppy incredible double IPA. More hops than the Easter bunny on Easter! Great mouthfeel, nice 2 finger frothy head retention. Aroma is a bit overwhelming, but makes sense from the high IBU's in this one. From a small brewery in Missouri. A great beer!

Pours a fairy clear orange copper color. White frothy head with good head retention.
Nice citrus smell. Clean, grapefruit, malt smell and not much else.
I like the balance of this beer. Hoppy flavor without being too bitter. A little sweeter and more body than the benchmark IPAs but it just works. Easy to drink while satisfying your senses.
Like all IPAs freshness is key. I luckily live within an hour of the bewery and can get it fresh. I have tried many higher rated iPAs from the bottle and for me this one tops them. Is it the quality of the brew or just the freshness? I wish I could go on tour and sample them all at the top of their game. Either way I highly recommend you try this one if you get an opportunity.

A: Poured a deep amber from a 12 oz. bottle into a standard pint glass with two fingers of off white head that fade quickly, lining the glass with solid lacing.
S: Piney and earthy hops with a bit of tangerine and other citrus fruit. Very hop forward with some malty sweetness.
T: Slightly bitter with pine and grassy notes, a bit of grapefruit and caramel. Strong balance between hops and malt.
M: Medium bodied and very smooth. Easy drinking and not overly bitter with a solid creamy texture.
O: I really loved this brew and I think it may be a different recipe from the one listed here at 8.3% ABV. My bottle read 9% so I don't know if it changes each year. Overall, one of the better DIPA's I've had in some time. Well done.
