look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a bright orange and yields 2 fingers of cream-colored head. I can smell the hops from the pour alone... and it's intense. Closer smell gives the overpowering, citrusy, dank hop smell you'd expect from a 102 IBU brew. The taste definitely has a powerful PINEY bitter hop smack but doesn't have the grapefruit-y citrus taste that I like in my DIPAs. Might sound like I'm splitting hairs here... but when you drink enough explosively-hoppy beers, you know the subtle flavors that make or break a beer for you.

Great beer for hop-heads, though. 5 mins after the last sip, my tongue feels like it's still coated in bitter hop residue. And for $5 for a bomber from my local deli, you can't beat the value. Overall: thumbs up.

from bottle poured in snifter

A - light golden color with a 2-finger head...good retention and a lot of lacing!

S - smells how a Dipa should! Very fresh and hoppy with strong notes of citrus/fruits.

T - matches the smell. Loads of hops with citrus and piney notes.

M - medium carbonation and medium body. very crisp and fresh!

O - one of my favorite double IPAs...especially for the price!

look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Poured out of a 22oz Bomber into a pint glass. A wonderfully rich golden bronze appearance with a very long lasting half a finger head, dissipating quite slowly.

S: Relatively strong alcohol and hops smell. A hint of grapefruit.

T: Early hop taste with a fruity aftertaste

M: Strong hop start with a fruity and alcohol breath finish. Carbonation is mellow, suited to the brew, didn't expect anything more or less.

O: Better strong IPA's exist but I enjoyed this brew for sure. Would I buy it again? Possibly it would have to be a special occasion, but definitely not a regular evening beer. Certainly on the fence about it.

It is, for the money, the best beer one can purchase in the Capital District.
$2.99 at certain Hannaford stores here.
Yummy hops and fruit abound.
You get a warm fuzzy buzzy feeling after one and wish you bought another.
Next to Stone IPA my favorite beer in the world.

I don't have the pedigree to go into fruity details - I'll keep this simple
Like beer?
Like IPA's?
Like getting drunk on REALLY good tasting IPA?
BUY THIS!
That is all
