look: 2.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured into a pint glass out of a 22oz bomber.

Appearance is honestly not very impressive. Crystal clear medium copper with basically no head at all. Only a tiny ring around the edge of the glass lets you know it is carbonated.

Aroma is out of this world. Tons and tons of hops. Lots of passionfruit/tropical citrus character with a little bit of mild grain underneath.

Flavor is, not surprisingly, nearly all hops. Huge tropical fruit character really carries this beer. A little bready malt underneath but it is very faint. Hops are king. Bitterness is not as high as I was expecting but is pleasantly assertive. The finish is slightly sticky but crisp.

Overall, not my favorite IIPA but in the top 5. For the price it really can't be beat. I would have liked to see a little more malt balance and complexity but I have a feeling this will become a regular in my fridge.

Drink this beer. You will not find a better ipa for the price. Seriously. You can spend the $4 and enjoy it. This beer is bitter. Super bitter. High alcohol. And ipa to the max. $8 beer will be put to shame 7/10 times. Don't think the price makes this less of a beer. Trust me.

Pours a beautiful amber honey color with a luscious thick white head that leaves a sticky lacing on the glass.
The smell is just phenomenal... hops and more piney hops... with pineapple, tangerine... wow!
The taste is even better.... hops and tropical fruits.... such a fantastic balance with the sweetness from the malts that make this such a well balanced ale. Such a smooth drinking DIPA that I cannot believe it is 102 ibu's.
For the price at $4... this comes out on top of most beers that are "stoopid" priced and over rated.
If you like IPAs ... go buy this... Hell, buy 5 for the price!! Most beers are so expensive that the sticker shock kills the quality ! haha

Solid beer, really enjoyed this one, great hoppy nose and finish, body was a bit thick for my pallet, this one is a good example of a one and done, if you are looking for something to totally consume your pallet then go for it, I would happily buy again!

From a 22 oz bottle. Pours a tacky, stingy yellow color, highly opaque and cloudy. Thin white head that relaxes on top, leaving a respectable trace of lacing through the top half of the beer. Nose hits with a huge assortment of pungent hops and intense grapefruits. Pineapples and mangoes are swarming around as well. First sip - slightly dank, heavy amount of oily resins and pungent hops - both bitter and sweet, a cornucopia of citruses, fruits, and pines. Malt overtones in the finish help to balance out the ending, but this beer was meant to be bitter and hoppy. Heavy on the mouth, sticky, slick, and held up by a medium amount of carbonation.

Seriously great beer. Amazing flavor, so full of pines, resins, and hops that are counterbalanced perfectly by the fruity citrus, grapefruit, and pineapple flavors which ironically come from the hops as well. Slight malt finish puts a nice close on things. I recommend this beer to everybody.

Enjoyed 12oz bottle out of a large snifter glass.

A: Pours a copper-orange hue with a 2-finger white head that dissipates into a wispy lace.

S: All I smell is wonder hops! Mild citrus and pine aromas in the background.

T: Flavors of hop, citrus, and pine all blended together.

M: Medium body and medium carbonation.

O: Wonderful IPA!

Review from scavenged notes.

Clear amber pour, bubbles of carbonation rise from the bottom of the glass, to greet a small fizzy white head. Aroma of herbal and citrusy hops, and not much else. More of the same in the taste, hops and hops, citrus pith, herbal notes, pale malts. Bitter and drying, light-medium body, tamed alcohol. Not a bad beer overall, but nothing amazing going on here.
