Poured from a 22oz bomber into a nonic tumbler.

A- Pours a deep golden color with hints of copper, pale gold when held to the light. The head is comprised of big sudsy bubbles that are tight and compact. As the head deflates it leaves soap sud looking lace in globby patches. The head simmers down from a half inch down to 1/4 and retains there fairly well. Carbonation looks lively like its trying to hold the head from falling down. A very Good looking beer. (After drinking the globbs of lace turn to sheets of big bubbles)

S- Aroma of orange zest and fresh grapefruit followed by caramel and light hints of alcohol heat. Smells good and the aroma is strong. Not wildly complex but comes together very well.

T-Intense bitterness strikes the pallet first and despite the nose its actually full of pine resin, after that comes ruby red grapefruit and bitter lemon peel. The malt is there simply to carry the intense hoppy flavor and bitterness, imparts little to no character. Alcohol is just slightly perceptible but only a flash in the pan at the finish, at 8% its very well hidden. The swallow is also extremely bitter and then and only then is any sweetness apparent. Not complex, not wildly flavorful but the flavors that are present are quite good. Well put together but this is truly for hop heads.

M-Carbonation is full, body is fairly light. After each swallow the mouth is stripped dry it seems. I think its basically the definition of a tongue scraper when it comes to bitterness factor it translates directly into mouthfeel. Its really a fun beer to drink.

O- Overall a dominant hop forward beer that has just enough malt backbone to carry it without it interfering with your hop fix. As it warms the beer slides to a little more pallet-able but for the most part if you don't like bitter, avoid. However if you like to push the IBU limits (reads 102) this is for you. I have had several beers above this stated measurement that were for sure less bitter. If i'm not mistaken this is made with hop extract instead of cone or pellet so if you think extract is inferior I say give this guy a try.

Very good beer. Good hoppy bite, with a smooth finish. I will definitely be grabbing it again.

would have rated lower if i could have, i am an avid IPA/ DIPA lover and drinker and this was one of the worst and most undrinkable beers I've ever came across, the smell initially smells like you took a mix of all the beers left over from a college dorm party put them into a bottle then sprayed the insides with skunk spray. it was so disgusting that it ruined the beer before it touché you tounge.

the taste relates that smell 100% old skunked over hopped beer that has zero balance and should have never been put into main stream distribution.

please save your 5 dollars and buy something better then this. as in a 6 pack of Busch that sits in the 100 degree heat for a week then flash chilled would taste 100 times better
