Amber and copper color, almost no head sticks around or leaves any lace within 1 minute of the pour. Pretty hoppy, no other detectable aromas out of the nose.

More and more hops, definitely unbalanced unabashed in the west coast stylee for yall. Plenty bitter, but it at least backs it up with a good stinging hop mouthfeel leaning citrus wise. Slight alcohol remains in the mouthfeel, not a detraction, not complimentary either. Almost nothing to speak of in the malt department, pale, crystal possibly, but its all speculation since 99% of what you taste is biting bitterness and heady hoppiness.

Pretty good stuff.

On-tap @ Tony's Darts Away - Reviewed from notes. Served in a 10oz nonic.

Burnt orange body with bright flame highlights all topped off by a thin beige head with excellent retention. Pasty lasting.

Delicate aromatics with citrus, marshmallow, and a fresh generic herbal quality. Hoppy, but I'm not sure which varietie(s) were used.

Surprisingly bitter palate entry - almost abrasive, without being too pine forward. Faintly toasted malt comes out for balance but is still dominated heavily by the bitterness. Bitter melon, roobois tea, lemon leaves, and earthy hops lead into a dry cutting finish.

Medium-bodied with active carbonation.

A bit one-dimensional, but still a distinctive take on the style that hop-heads and lovers of bitter beers should appreciate.

A: Very nice red copper color with a dark eggshell foam out of the bottle.

S: Floral and grassy. Not bad but not special.

T: Best part of the beer, balanced between strawberries and floral hops.

M: Medium-Full Bodied. Too heavy for me for more than one.

O: Good beer. Great flavor and color.

Poured a deep copper, red and gold hued, unstylistically cloudy, relatively little lace. Aroma was full on hoppy with citrus and pine stickiness, brighter hops than expected from the appearance, stinging flora, definitely a hop bomb with no malt on the nose.

Flavor is hugely citrusy with grapefruit and orange, intense flora with geranium, bordering on overhopped for the alcohol content, fully bitter. The color indicates a distinctive malt presence but the beer is balanced (or unbalanced) enough that it is still decesively "west coast" and malt character is generally absent in the aroma and flavor. This is generally a good thing in an American IPA and this is not an exception.

The one place the malts might show up are in the feel, where the beer is nicely thick on the palate, yet the fully prickly carbonation keeps the drink crisp and refreshing. This makes drinking a couple pints easy, and so I did. A formidable IPA I would love to see on tap again.

3.64/5  rDev +1.4%

A: Pours from a 500ml bottle a slightly hazy light copper with nearly 1-finger off-white head and leaves spotty lace.

N: Grapefruit, caramel malt with some floral notes.

T: Malty and slightly woody with some pine.

M: Medium body and carbonation. Finishes sticky, sweet and malty.

O: Fairly standard malt forward offering, but was looking for something more hoppy.
