I enjoy this more than Eyeball/Brown Shugga...less than Hop Stoopid and Imperial Stout (as far as Lagunitas)

prefer this to SN Torpedo as well

Color nothing extraordinary...Smell is phenomenal piney-hop blast, overall feel is not special but the taste is one of the better in terms of what i like in an IPA (initial tongue better than aftertaste in terms of strength of flavor)

Poured a orangish amber into a IPA glass from SA with a beautiful frothy off white head that left a nice lacy trail. Aroma was excellent with citrus piney scent with a bit of grassy smell and a touch of carmel. Taste was same as the nose, with a wonderful bitterness that lingered a full minute after the taste. Would love to try this straight up fresh!
