4.5/5  rDev +25.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

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.

3.4/5  rDev -5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.25

Orangey amber, on the darker side. Average foam in the big Duvel tulip with nice lacing along the glass. Some piney aromas. Nice sudsy mouthfeel. Thinner than a lot of IPAs.

Some fruity flavors and a malty base start this out pleasantly. This is a pretty bitter beer. Intense acidity to go with the orange and lemon and grapefruit flavors.

The carbonation really does last well and provides a mellow sudsiness. The aftertaste is always that hop attack. Hop fiends, this is your beer. Too much of a good thing for me, but this seems well made and clean. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Sunset Beer Company in Los Angeles.
